I've just recovered a backup in a new phone.

As you can see the name was recovered from backup so I have some discrepancy.

How can I change the phone's name ?

  • @Indrek That question's title should probably be changed, since a search for the question VitorCanova asked here would not quickly find the question you linked to. IMHO VitorCanova's title is the better one. – RareNCool Mar 4 '15 at 14:33
  • @Shawn but it's not Bluetooth focused. Don't know if you should keep both. – Vitor Canova Mar 4 '15 at 15:10
  • Right, but if I'm understanding correctly, the question that @Indrek linked to isn't really about Bluetooth; the OP just noticed it when trying to Bluetooth. I'm not sure we should keep both either, I'm just saying if this one is closed, the other should be edited. – RareNCool Mar 4 '15 at 15:25
  • Let's close. It will no be delete. – Vitor Canova Mar 4 '15 at 15:37

You need to connect your phone to a PC. You can then rename it as you would any other mass storage device, or use the Windows Phone App for RT or desktop to rename it.

  • And the app witch is installed just after I plugged in Windows does this too. Thanks. – Vitor Canova Mar 4 '15 at 15:39
  • @VitorCanova Right. Updated my answer to include that. – RareNCool Mar 4 '15 at 15:46
  • I've tested in the desktop version. You sure the RT version does this too? – Vitor Canova Mar 4 '15 at 16:33

    @VitorCanova Just tested it 5 seconds ago :) – RareNCool Mar 4 '15 at 16:36

    I've only ever used the RT app to do it :) – Rowland Shaw Mar 4 '15 at 16:43
