    I was checking my data usage and noticed that where it used to say at&t it changed to "maritim" . I cannot find any info online or here. Hoping for an answer. I have had at&t service since the 920 and have had an unlimited plan since the beginning.

    My 950 Dual SIM unlocked on ATT shows that too under data usage. The SIM settings shows ATT. No idea why. Same in both 950's I've used.

    I just turned my phone off. When it restarted it read at&t. The mystery continues.

    Many years ago (2003-2005) I was driving through Tennessee and when to check my messages.... I was on roaming, and the provider was.... "Jim's Cell Tower!". That phone didn't have WiFi. I disabled roaming and no signal. Turned roaming on and back to Jim's.... I shut my cell off until I hit a major city. My point? Weirder things have happened... Try disabling roaming and see what you get.

    Roaming was disabled. I live in a city. Right next to At&t offices and their massive cell tower.

    I see that too. I figured it was some screwup where a placeholder is showing up instead of the correct carrier name. It could also be a regional thing, it's the name AT&T in my area is broadcasting for some reason.

    Hopefully we can find out the answer. Seems weird.

    Maybe it is this or something similar?

    WMS-Wireless Maritime Services

    a subsidiary of AT&T

    Do you who are seeing this happen to be located near a major waterway or ocean?

    This city you live in. Is it by any chance on a cruise ship or any kind of ship that's not a spaceship?

    I'm in white plains NY which is the next big city north of NYC. I can actually see the At&t building and their huge cell tower from my house.

    Just hoping there is no foul play being done to my unlimited plan. You never know these days.

    I had the same thing on my single SIM 950XL I just received yesterday. After it did an OS and maybe firmware update it then said AT&T.

    I'm not far from the Long Island Sound but the fact that I'm also not too far from White Plains makes me think it's a regional issue with AT&T.

    I noticed this last night, after my phone woke me up saying "you are near your data limit". I have used only around 6.5GB of my 15GB. Also, says I'm roaming. I'm not. AT&T Lumia 950 wp_ss_20160210_0001.jpg Side note, when my screen is locked (glance) it shows the time and any other info on the bottom half of the screen like normal, but after it woke me up this morning, all the info and time was in the top half of the screen but my background was normal. Hmmm.... Installing .107 as I type.

    That's normal. Glance will step up the screen if it is in for awhile. Sort of like it is a screensaver

    I noticed that my phone used the strange "Maritim" designation today, observed while I was investigating how my phone managed to burn through over three gigs of cellular data in two days while I barely used it. Restarted the phone, and now it's back to saying AT&T.

    Hmmm. Luckily I have unlimited. Could "maritim" be a scam using our service? Cannot wait for the answer to this.

    Spot on, it is the network name for cell services on cruise ships etc. That is all.

    False. I live smack-dab in the middle of the country, more land-locked than anyone, and mine says Maritim.
