    If someone would let me see and have a 2G's SpringBoard.strings file, I might know how.

    Ok, well for the Carrier, most people use MakeItMine to change it. Slide to Unlock is also known as AWAY_LOCK_LABEL. iPod is also known as IPOD. All these are in the file you uploaded.

    Here : Slide to Unlock is line 62, iPod is line 250.

    Can I delete MakeItMine when I'm done editing my carrier name and keep the edit? Or do I need to keep the program to keep the edit?

    search for this :

    <key>IPOD</key>
    <string>iPod</string>

    You should just put it in Dock or Poof it, so that you can change it back later if you want.

    I am on a Mac so I use TextWrangler.

    It goes either in /System/Library/CoreServices/SpringBoard.strings/English.lproj/ or in a theme folder for WinterBoard under /Library/Themes/THEMEFOLDER/Bundles/com.apple.springboard/en.lproj/ .

    Tell me what text you want and I can change it for you if you want.
