    I have a 1st generation IPAD with AT&T unlimited 3G cellular plan. I noticed today that I no longer get the AT&T next to the signal strength bars in the upper left corner, now I get "Dan" next to the bars. Anybody have any idea if this is a new plan or what it means?

    Is your iPad jail broken? Because you can change that carrier name with various tweaks if it is.

    Otherwise, sorry, but I've no idea how that changed [on a stock ipad]. Sorry.

    Thanks for the input. This is a stock device, and I didn't attempt to jailbreak it, but I will follow- up on this.

    Thanks for that, KayKayKay.

    I had just read the article and was coming back to link it.

    So, no, it's not you, gdun. Very interesting glitch, though, yeah? :)

    Thank you kaykaykay for the quick response and link to the answer. I wonder if we'll hear more about this going forward from both AT&T or Apple.
