MIUI Tips & Tricks

[] [Spud's Top Tips #8] changing your carrier name

Hi all you lovely Mi Fans



This is a simple top tip for you

If like me you lock your phone no one can access your contacts not even in an emergency

So a easy way around this is to edit your carrier name on the lockscreen to show a contact number (don't use your mobile number though)



Open Settings and look for notifications & status bar



Make sure
Show carrier when device is locked is toggled to on
Then tap on Edit carrier name



Once here type is your
Emergency contact number



Then on your lockscreen you will find a scrolling message with your personalised contact number



Hope you find this useful, it could help you out one day even if you have lost your phone this will help

Please
Follow me at the top of this thread for more helpful info

Bye for now

You can also do this with Settings->Lock Screen->Advanced->Lock Screen Owner Info.  No need to repurpose another field :)
