    Well I'll be... this afternon after a reboot, just got back randomly to "normal" Well it shows VL (Videotron Limited I guess -it was showing Videotron on CM11s) instead of Rogers. No change to APN were made.

    And the bug reappeared. Got fed up, giving CM12s a try. Seems to play nice with the magic jack app too, (with Oxygen OS, had to uninstall it).

    ok I just got my OPT yesterday and inserted my 2 sims.

    I get:

    "Telecom Italiz SpA" instead of "TIM" which most phones use (btw should be Telecom Italia and not Italiz)


    "Hutchinson 3g" instead of "3 ITA" which most phones use (that should be H3G carrier).

    so why this wrong names? and also mispelled? any fix yet?
    this is really annoying...

    Instead of the usual '3', I was getting 'Hutchison 3G IReland limited' (the capital 'R' in 'IReland' isn't my mistake).
    Anyway as I have my phone rooted, I installed a little app called Custom Text, and I have it set to replace all instances of 'Hutchison 3G IReland limited' in the system UI with '3 Ireland'.

    I'm getting the same issue with my OPT. I put in a T-Mobile sim and an AT&T sim. T-Mobile is in slot 1 and it's set to be the primary sim but it shows AT&T. I removed the AT&T sim and rebooted the phone twice. It still shows AT&T as the carrier. I checked LTE Discovery and it shows that I'm on Band 12 LTE and that is T-Mobile.

    Hi Guys,

    I'm having same issue like you do. I live in Poland, use 2 SIMs:
    SIM 1 of mobile op: PLAY (very old name P4)
    SIM 2 of mobile op: ORANGE (very old name PTK Centertel)

    My OPT reports Orange for both SIMs, while in SIM menu (settings) saying that:
    SIM 1 is registered in Orange network
    SIM 2 is registered in PTK Centertel network.

    It's complete mess. I hope OP will do something with that soon... 2 SIMs feature is one of the reasons I bought this phone.

    Today I upgraded to OxygenOS 2.1 and I can say the problem is gone, fixed :)
    Names for mobile operators are properly displayed on my side.

    As for me I have sim1 from PLAY operator, sim2 from PLUS operator and on the lock screen the displayed names are P4 Sp. zo.o | Polkomtel, as well as on SIMs settings menu.

    Same problem after 2.1.0 Update: the carrier name list stored in ROM is still incorrect.

    I realized the displayed carrier names are in fact legal names instead of commercial names - same as you would say on the car it's the Fuji Heavy Industries Impreza instead of it's a Subaru Impreza, it's a PSA 406 instead of Peugeot 406 etc...

    There is a fix for rooted devices. Just create the file 'spn-conf.xml' in system\etc and set the appropriate rights (octal 0644). Here you can put the carrier names you want.
    This example shows translations for the italian carriers Vodafone and TIM ('Telecom Italiz'):
    <?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
    <spnOverride numeric="22210" spn="Vodafone IT" />
    <spnOverride numeric="22201" spn="I TIM" />
    After a reboot the carrier name will be ok.

    Here i've found a link with a carrier list:

    It should be fixed by oneplus in a patch ;)

    And when I look on your list I am hppy that I don't have a bealorussian and Finland sims installed - it would not fit in screen width :D :D :D

    I don't think so... Nexus5 shows "TIM", OPT shows "Telecom Italiz SpA" with a spelling error... Italiz instead of Italia :-(

    I don't think so ...
    My 1+1 displays the correct carrier, and beside, the 1+2 shows incorrect names ...

    I also live in Belgium. I have 2 sims: one form Mobistar and one from a Greek provider Cosmote. My phone shows: France Telecom | France Telecom at the lock screen.
