    Group, my apologies for such a simplistic question. I want to set the name of my Lumia to something more personalized. I have reviewed all the options in settings and can't seem to find a way to set the device name. I appreciate any direction on this that can be offered.
    thanks

    As far as I know you have to set the device name through the Windows Phone application on a PC or Mac

    Sadly you have to plug in your Lumia 920 to your PC/Mac Windows Phone client (As I have windows 8 I'll tell you to go to preferences to get the renaming option )

    You can also rename it with Windows Explorer (Win 7 or 8). When you connect it, it shows up in Explorer next to your hard drive(s). Right click and say "rename", just like renaming a folder.
