    which it says

    Date/'GPRS' Display Under Carrier Name:

    The text displayed when GPRS "attaches" (the icon with the white box with blue pentagons above and below it beside your signal strength) is stored in seem 01a8_0001.
    It can be annoying because this text overwrites the date on your phone, and a lot of people don't like that. But there are some very quick fixes.
    Do you want the date to always display? Upload this file: http://xlr8.us/hofo/01a8_0001_datealways.zip.
    Do you want nothing at all to display? Upload this file: http://xlr8.us/hofo/01a8_0001_nothing.zip.
    Do you want your own custom text to display? Download this file and edit it the way I'm about to tell you: http://xlr8.us/hofo/01a8_0001_custom.zip.
    Open the custom file in XVI32 and you'll see that I have mine set to display "XLR8" (of course). You can change the text that's displayed by altering the values on the text side of the hex editor.
    Note that there must be a hex value of "00" in between each character that is to be displayed.
    Also note that to specify the end of the display, you must put hex values of "00" twice. Then be sure the rest of the file is filled with hex values of "FF".
    Save, upload, and restart to see the changes!
    You may also get 'GPRS Active' displayed when you're actually in a web session. You can turn that off and keep whatever display you have based on the 01a8_0001.seem.
    All you need to do is go into the 0032_0001.seem and change offset 60, bit #0 to "0" - that will turn off the 'GPRS Active' text along with the GPRS PDP Context icon (the square with the rays of sun).
    Save, upload, and restart to see the changes!
