    I seem to be full of questions today.

    When i recently switched from my 920 to a 1520, I did the routine restore from backup to get all my apps back.

    However, now the "name" of the phone is Matt's Lumia 920 and its driving my ocd nuts. Is there a way to change that?

    1. Plug your phone into a PC.
    2. Wait for all the drivers to load.
    3. Go to File Explorer and find your device.
    4. Right-click "Matt's Lumia 920" and go to "Rename".
    5. Set whatever name your OCD will be happy with.
    6. Enjoy.

    Well in that case ill change the name to fit my tech naming scheme. All my laptops were named after someone in Lord of the Rings. Since my 1520 is big, red, and has the all seeing camera eye I'll name it Sauron.

    when I had my 920, I named it Monolith -2001 reference. When I got the 1520, I named it Monolith2.-again, 2001 reference.
    after all, they are/were black and looked like the monolith from the movie.
