How To Remove The Carrier Name From The Status Bar On Huawei Mate 8

We could name thousands of things we love about the smartphones. It is not about texting or making calls anymore, it is a lot more than that. We can do so many things, from playing the games, to browsing the Internet. Of course, there are some things we don’t like at all, but probably one of the things we all hate to see is the bloatware. You just purchased a new shiny Mate 8, but still, it comes with tons of apps your carrier added on the device, and truth to be told you will hardly use any of it. Carriers will make sure their names are visible on the customers’ phones, so you may notice the name in the status bar. This can be pretty annoying, right? Let’s see how to remove the carrier name from the status bar on Huawei Mate 8.

  • Navigate to Settings
  • Tap on Notification panel & status bar
  • Move the switch located next to “Display carrier name” to disable this option
