iPhone carrier indicator is taking too much space.

I got started with Public Mobile since August.

 

I use $10/month plan for 50 minutes talk and 50 outgoing text, as I am not using much text and call. I also added 1GB data add on. I like its coverage, affordable cost and data that carries over to next month if unused, which no other carriers offer.

 

However, I have a concern about carrier indicator, as my phone is iPhone SE. It is taking a lot of space, sometimes moving connection indicator (which spins when data connection is made on iPhone) to left side.

I did some research how other carriers around the world with long name deals with this. For example, TracFone Wireless in States, shortens it to "TFW".

 

Shouldn't Public Mobile do similar thing, and shorten it to "PMC" or "PM", or "Public", like how Lucky Mobile show carrier as "Lucky", not "Lucky Mobile".

This would be a matter of preference... it has never bothered me Smiley Happy.

Also I’d like to point out that the ‘loading’ indicator moved to the right for many devices with the iOS 12

update.

It has been suggested several times in the past. Likely not changing anytime soon.

There's a simple fix for this:  purchase an Android phone and drop your iPhone off at your local electronics recycling depot!  Problem solved!

Got Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 Pro and got issue fixed. MIUI allowed me to change carrier text on lockscreen (Carrier text doesn't display on status bar on MIUI)
