I'm doing some tests at the moment of the iPhone on XT and Vodafone.
I just put a Vodafone SIM card into my iPhone and the "Operator logo" says "Telecom NZ".
Huh?
I turn off the phone and turn it back on to see if it was some sort of error.
Still Telecom NZ!
So I check my Carrier settings, and it is on Automatic. I set this to vodafone NZ (the other option is Telecom NZ), and it STILL says Telecom NZ.
I dial an 0800 number - it connects.
What's going on??
I have another SIM that I use with this iPhone and the behaviour is definitely not this!!!

Vodafone have advised this issue to Apple

Only worry about the SIM card that is in the handset

Sorry, I meant just to say I was in Dunedin in case it helped anyone that was actually working on the issue. I know many already know my location.

I wonder if that fix will prevent other SIMs working in the iPhone?

But that would be a SIM lock how did you come to this?

No way, Apple sells iPhones on their website and says

'iPhone 3G & iPhone 3GS purchased at the Apple Online Store can be activated with any wireless carrier'

So they can't start locking iphones to any one carrier

I have the exact same issue, found it so weird. Posted it to Twitter as well. My phone is jailbroken so I don't have to see that carrier name though!

I had the issue too, but it seem to fix itself after updating the IPCC file a couple of times, and swapping SIM cards. Can't remember the exact sequence I followed though. Pretty random.
