Step 3: You will then have to select your device and carrier from the next screen. If your carrier is not displayed here, then you won’t be able to complete this process.

If you don’t have any of your own, there is a variety of pre prepared ones in the .dmg folder downloaded with the app. Carrier Editor will not completely delete your original carrier logo, it creates a file of the original, which will be located on your desktop.
