    Android and earlier mobile OS's like Symbian allowed users to change the name of their device when paired with another device. Can i do that in WP? It is very confusing for my friends as multiple pairings with windows phones in their devices show the same name 'windows phone'

    At the moment it is impossible to name your bluetooth device name. Maybe 8.1 will address this issue.

    Connect your phone to computer via usb,
    Open the WP app and change the name of your phone.

    I usually use the system explorer to browse through the phone while connected to PC. What WP app are you talking about?

    The name for Bluetooth will be the same as your phone name. You don't need the WP app to rename. Just connect your phone to your computer, and rename it like you would rename anything else.
