Does it really matter?
I've noticed the phone booths with Wifi are broadcasting two SSID's at the moment.  Both "Telecom NZ" and "Spark NZ", kinda interesting.

I have Spark NZ being reported as the provider by my phone everywhere except on the notifications pulldown bar. Which stubbornly continues to say "Telecom NZ". I selected use operator settings when first installing the Sim. Does anyone know how to change this?
I have asked the same question in the M7 thread on the android forum.

As also posted on the HTC One thread.

Is the Telecom NZ on the notifications bar coming from the sim card? My phone with a Telecom sim still shows Telecom as the operator. My other phone which has a Telstra sim shows Spark as the operator.

One thing I did notice when I was in Oz recently was that my phone with the Telecom sim would always initially show Telecom when it was "woken up" but this would change to Telstra within a few seconds. This also makes me think the sim influences what operator name is displayed.

Yes. It would appear to be what is on the sim that matters. I just tried my Vodafone sim and it stayed on "Vodafone NZ" but when I put the TNZ Sim back in, on bootup it briefly displays Spark then reverts to Telecom. I replied in the M7 thread as well but it seems here is more appropriate.

@jaidevp. Thanks for your reply. Must admit I did skim the thread you linked before posting but as soon as I saw "iPhone" and "iOS 8" in and around your post my eyes glazed over slightly ;-). If I had read more closely I probably could have worked out it would apply to Android as well.

So I guess if I want it to stop it bugging me I need to swap it for a new sim?

I beggars belief as to why people are getting so hung up over this.

Your opinion, which adds nothing to this thread.

I note that an update to the carrier pack for iOS will fix this for the iPhone. Is there a possibilty the same will happen in future android firmware updates?

No wait (soon) for the over the air updates which will update it automatically.

That is the kind of answer I like. Sit back and do nothing (which I can achieve) and wait for an update.

My Note 10.1 says Spark but the Note 3 still says telecom, both have Telecom Sims.
Galaxy s III (running Cyanogenmod 4.4.4) says Spark when I have my UK Tmobile sim in it but Telecom NZ when I have the sim from the Note 3 in it.

That will change too shortly, I am working on the implementation.

So I guess the less time you need to spend answering these queries, the more time you can spend on getting things done. :-)

Back in the BellSouth became Vodafone days, phones would still say BellSouth years later unless it went in for a service + firmware update. Or those who could "hack" their Nokia phones would get them to display Vodafone or whatever they they liked. Then there was the whole operator logo fad.
