    I'm using an official 3GS with AT&T. When I'm roaming domestically (where AT&T has no direct coverage) it says "Off Network" in the top left instead of "AT&T".

    This doesn't even fully fit in. so it just says "Off..." and then theres a huge
    space between that and the "E" or Wifi symbol which really bothers me.

    I know I can change my carrier to always say AT&T, but then I won't know when I'm roaming.

    Is there a way to change what the carrier says when it DOESNT say AT&T? Or to make it display something else when the carrier name is "Off Network" ?

    yes, look in springboard.strings. you'll find what you need in there.
