This Month's Question


Dear Jarrett,

With Bluetooth, is there any way to give a name tag to a phone? I have a phone for work, and personal phone they are the same model but right now on the info screen I cannot tell which one is which.

Sincerely, IPhonyname


Dear IPhonyname,

The name is actually changed on the phone itself, what brand of phone do you have?

-Apple Iphone: Open the “Settings” app, and then “General”, then click “About”, and click “Name”, and it will allow you to enter a name tag of your own choosing.

-Android Smartphone: If you open the "Settings" app, and scroll all the way down to the bottom of the screen, there should be an option called "about device". You can change your phone's name tag under "device name"
