    Hello,

    I have a PRIV with Android 6.0.1 and trying to change the device name that shows up in "Connected Devices" in the router's WLAN list. ie. the "android-egdf6ace1c1fce49". I have gone into the Bluetooth settings and changed the name there, but still shows the android name with random numbers and letters. I have also tried changing the name in " Mobile Hotspot" with no luck. Any more ideas would be appreciated.

    Thanks in advance,

    I have a Samsung Galaxy J3V as a 2nd phone for apps, not sure how relatable it will be, but try going to Settings, under System settings find "About phone" and should see "Phone name" where you can click on it and change the device name.

    Let us know if this works.

    I thought this interesting, so I looked to see if I could do it, but don't think so :

    In Status you can't change anything, nor under Sim Status.

    Swipe down settings , select Bluetooth, hit the three dots in the top right corner , and select rename device. If you wish to change your BlackBerry name

    Where are you seeing the "Connected Devices" for your router WLAN List? From you phone or on your PC?

    Unfortunately, there is no "Phone Name" or anything like that in the menu.
