I've seen some people have. Is there a way I can do this? And this is for my personal use and I think iOS 7 looks better with out a carrier anyways

I thought it was because when they were previewing it. The carrier didn't show up and my friend got iOS 7 and his carrier didn't show up

I thought that iOS 7 no longer showed the carrier. That is, you can't show the carrier even if you wanted to.

Incorrect. The carrier shows like Intell said.

What is with the desire to not have one's cell carrier show? Of all the things to focus on...

No. It is still shown, just like always.

I can see where people are coming from. It's largely pointless when you're not roaming, and besides those new dots take up more room on the status bar. If you can hide the carrier name you recover some space.

Ive noticed many users of apple, ask questions like these, and it just reminds me of android. Because I used to have one, there were many things we can do..like customize practically everything. But what I dont get is how people continue to remain apple fans but at the same time, want the customization that androids have? I knew from day one when I got an iPhone that I would be giving up customization on many levels. Not to sound rude but its something that you either live with or buy a new phone!!!

There is still no workaround for CarrierEditor on iOS 7 according to the developer.

I'm pretty sure in order to hide the carrier on iOS 7 your iPhone will have to be jailbroken.

I would also like to know if carrier editor was updated or there are other alternatives.

There won't be a way as Apple changed way it's used in the .ipsw. So until a jailbreak is released CarrierEditor or any program won't work

Am I the only one that doesn't really care about my carriers being shown in the status bar? I actually like it. The only thing I don't like are the dots in iOS 7. I much prefer the bars from iOS 6.

I much prefer the bars from iOS 6.I agree about the dots/bars. I also don't really care about carrier name, but I can see why some would as it can take up a decent amount of space for some and make things look somewhat cluttered/busy up there in the status bar.

Yeah it does look cluttered and iOS is the only OS that shows the carrier name like for androids and blackberry they don't show the carrier name

I don't know about BB but on Android some phones do show it including the Moto X. Other phones show it elsewhere just not in the status bar.

Most Android phones also come with the carrier logo on the phone itself. I assume that's why Apple isn't allowed to take it off the status bar.

They have done this since the AT&T exclusivness was dropped. Clearly they would be showing favortism if they were to display AT&T only or Verizon etc.

I've never owned a branded phone so That's not true unless you're buying from a carrier.
