    Why in iPhone commercials or iPhone reviews or pictures of iPhones that are on iPhone accessories, the carrier name is always hidden? For example, there will be no carrier name or it will say NO SIM? What do people have to hide?

    Why should they pay for a carrier advertisement?

    Maybe because of advertising reasons?

    Also, the time is always 9:41 AM, they do this because Apple always introduces the new phone at 9:41. Also the battery is always full.

    In order of likelihood...

    1. It's an Apple advertisement, not a carrier advertisement
    2. There's 3 carriers to choose from, and if they advertised one, or another, things would get confusing
    3. It's probably not even connected to a carrier

    Good point, and here in the UK.. your 3 carriers would mean nothing to your average Brit.

    Oh, yeah- also, it's a world phone! lol The bottom line is, they advertise only what you get. You don't get the carrier in the box.

    Bare in mind we often have carrier logos at the end of our commercials. I often see 3 or O2 (On the rare occasion Orange) at the end of the commercials.
