    Default Change phone name in Samsung Kiess

    We have more than one S2 phone and each time I open KIESS the device name is always the same because all 6 phones are S2's.

    How can I change the phone name that appears in the top left corner of KIESS window on my PC?
    In S2 phones there is only one option to customize for Bluetooth but nothing for WiFi/KIESS
    If Bluetooth is disabled the phone name defaults to the phone model !
    When USB connected to the PC (in Windows Explorer) I can change the phone/drive name but it is not refelected in KIESS.

    Is it possible (and how) to customize each phone's name.?

    Thank you

    Sad part is, I used to know how to change that, but, in one of the updates, they removed it. Sorry I couldn't bring better news.

    Cool Re: I still cling to hope

    Thanks "Golfdriver97" for your response,

    Disappointing news.

    Correction fluid doesn't work either -- it doesn't stick to the glass.
