    It may be a silly question, but when I turn on bluetooth, my laptop and other phones find my Lumia as "Windows Phone". Can I give my Lumia a name, so that people could find me via bluetooth when there are dozens of windows phones nearby? Thank you!

    Connect your WP to PC and rename it in Windows Explorer. I hope it helps.

    It's totally silly that in order to change the name of WP8, you have to first connect it to a PC. Why can't we just re-name the phone, erm, on the phone? So simple, how was this missed?

    Changing the name for a WP7 phone was much more complicated. You had to open Zune and click on the phone tab to access the option that lets you change the device's name. However, changing the name of your phone can complicate things. First, Zune might "scramble" or hide any photos or images on the device or completely wipe them from the phone. Also, music might also be incorrectly tagged. Thank god I jumped onto the WP8 bandwagon and got myself a Lumia 920.
