    Ok, I definitely don't consider myself new, but I cannot, for the life of me, figure out how to change my BT ID on my 920. I've tried through the W8 app to rename and it is. However, when I connect via BT to my computer or car, it shows as Windows Phone. Not a big deal, but my wife also has a 920 and it would be nice to display our phone IDs instead of "Windows Phone".

    Any ideas?

    Are you trying through the metro app or desktop app?

    I have no problems changing it through the metro app. Go to "Settings > Preferences > Name your phone" and name it to whatever you want. Also make sure under "Permissions" that the app is able to access your phone. After you're done, on the phone, look under "Settings > About" and see what the name says.

    Hope that works.

    It says the name I designated under settings > about (had even before connecting it to the car the first time), but on the car and phone it still says "Windows Phone".
