    It's not a big deal, but on every other Windows Phone, the carrier name is on the live tile for the phone app, but mine is blank. When I start the 8X without the sim, it says no service, but once I put the sim back in, it's blank again. I'm on Verizon. Is any one else seeing this?

    What size Tile are you using? It will only show the carrier name on the "medium and large size" tile, not on the smallest square one. Mine says Verizon Wireless on both of those.

    I had it on large, but because the only thing on it was the phone icon, I put it back on medium. https://skydrive.live.com/redir?resi...GX8_9I71lJqNFs
    It's not the end of the world or anything, I'm just curious if there is a fix for this.

    I'm connected. The tile read Verizon Wireless for a day or two and then vanished. It makes the tile look bad without it, surprisingly. Anyone have any ideas to get it back?
