    Default Can't Rename Bluetooth Device in 4.3

    Prior to 4.3, I could go to the Bluetooth menu and there was an option to "Rename Device", but this is gone after 4.3. I have even done a post-4.3 factory reset. This is super annoying because now both my and my wife's GS3s show up in our cars as SPH-L710 instead of having different names.

    Anybody find a way around this?

    Here's what you do. Settings > More > About device > Device Name. Your welcome... I take payments in Ferrari's and Lamborghinis.

    Thanks, I had searched everywhere for this. The icon by "About Device" is a little i information symbol which leads one to believe the information therein is read only. It is the first time ever I have seen that symbol used for something you could edit. That's why I did not bother looking in there. Not the best bit of user interface in the world. Thanks once more.
