    So I'm taking my IP4 to the Genius bar later this week and in preparation today I restored it back to factory settings. Everything seemed well until I noticed that the AT&T carrier logo still had my name left in the top left hand corner - a leftover from Makeitmine.

    See below for resolution

    Thanks to all for replies

    It says that because you restored your iPhone from a backup instead of setting it up as a new iPhone.

    Yeah you don't restore from a jailbroken backup before taking to the Apple Store:p

    MIM is a Cydia App - it wasn't there after my restore.

    I missed that bit about the setup as a new phone...

    So I should restore as a new iPhone then if I want any of my settings can I just sync or should I be looking for a pre-JB sync to restore from?

    If I restore from a JB backup after changing the carrier name am I going to bring any other JB settings over?

    Thanks,

    Setup as new and don't worry about settings for the Genius. Once you get home with that phone or a new one, then restore from a backup.
