How To Change Bluetooth Name In Windows Phone? No matter which Windows Phone you are using, when you buy it you have a default name of your device as “Windows Phone”. The same name appears as your bluetooth device name when you share data with someone else. It’s not a big issue to use the same name “Windows Phone”. But the problem comes when you need to transfer data from someone’s mobile to your Windows Phone and there are more than one Windows Phone devices. When the other person searches for the nearby devices he will get all the devices with the same name “Windows Phone” and it will be difficult to choose the right one. So to keep your Windows Phone unique, you need to change the name of your bluetooth device to a different name.
But the problem is that Windows Phone has not got any such feature to change the bluetooth name separately from your phone until now. Hope it might be coming in the next software releases by Microsoft. Bluetooth uses the same name as of your device. So to change the bluetooth name you need to change the device name. Now, How to change the device name? In some latest Windows Phones, you can change the device name from Settings>About. But on older devices, there is no way to change the name using your Windows Phone device either.
