Change your Android phone name
If you are a smart Android user, please do not cross beyond this point. All options are already existing under phone settings, I will just be telling you how to dig into it. The easiest way to change the device name of your Android device is by doing it from the About phone screen itself. Type your custom device name and select Done. Then tap the Hotspot name option and type the name you want to show. On some Android phones, you need to tap the 3-dot menu icon and select Configure Mobile Hotspot option to replace the existing name with a name of your choice.
Change your iPhone name
If you have multiple devices or if you want to give your phone a more personal touch, you can rename it whatever you want. Naming your device is a good idea because it eliminates ambiguity over which device you are handling at any given time. Changing your iPhone name requires a couple of easy steps. This example uses iOS 13 , though the steps should work the same way for every iPhone. The following sequence uses a Samsung Galaxy S20 Plus running Android 10 , but most other Android smartphones should be similar. Then, just enter the name you want, and tap Done. Note that there is a character limit, though most names should fit. Alternately, you can go to System instead of Quick settings and it will take you to the same place. Renaming your smartphone is always a good idea. It personalizes your experience while at the same time helps you pick out your current phone from the other devices that you or family members may own.
When you first activated your Samsung Galaxy, you were given the option to name your phone. This name is displayed to network administrators when you connect to a Wi-Fi network, and is seen by other Bluetooth device users when you pair with them. It is also displayed in Windows Explorer or Kies when you connect the phone to a computer. If you want to change this name, you can do so at any time through your Settings menu. Enter the new name for your phone in the text box. Note that any person or network that you connect to will be able see this name, so consider avoiding any personally identifiable information in your Galaxy's name.
