    Does someone know how do I change the name of my windows phone device shown in bluetooth?
    All (or the most) lumia wp (i don't know if that also goes for other devices) have the default bluetooth name "Windows Phone". I would like to change that name 'cause my boyfriend and my parents have a wp and it's a little bit confusing if all devices have the same name.
    Does someone have a solution for my problem??

    Btw, my device is a Lumia 920

    Just connect your phone to a PC, go to "My Computer" and right-click on Windows Phone and select "Rename" and rename your phone to whatever you want....


    That's it! No softwares needed.
