    Where do I go to change the device name?

    I want to change so I can recognize it more easily in the Wi-Fi setting on the computer instead of some random letters and numbers.

    I don't think there is a way to change this but if someone else knows I would also be interested in knowing about it.

    Goto the setup folder, then set up bluetooth.

    Its under the options menu here as device name.

    Hope that helps

    That just changes the device name for Bluetooth, not for WiFi.

    Wanna get the answer as well.
    I'm using a TP-Link Router at home. When I go to 192.168.1.1 to check the devices connected to my wifi, I can't distinguish which Blackberry device is mine.
    Is there any way let me change my device name in Wifi?

    Thank you buddy.

    Actually you find the gear icon on blackberry link, then you go to your device name, there should be a pencil icon and you erase the previous name and change it to yours hearts desire.
