    I have a US Motion phone. I want to change the device name(not just the Bluetooth name). I see the model number on the About phone screen, but do not see where I can change the device name (for Casting, WiFi, etc).

    You can not change the device name, a basic feature found on other flagship devices.

    You can change the bluetooth name.
    You can change the wifi name.
    You CAN NOT change the device name.

    HUGE oversight by BlackBerry Mobile. Right now I'm trying to figure out what devices are connected to the wifi router in the house, extremely frustrating seeing that all the basic Android devices have this long string name with "android-d935441a5d307a15", while iOS devices just have the name of the device like "Juggernaut 6S".

    Yeah, I hate that, too. Either some non-standard string or the MAC address.
