In my case the ability to change the Android hostname on my phone is preventing me from setting a DHCP reservation for it on my DHCP server (router) because the standard hostname is something like android_f7s89f8ir78etywt which is too long for the router to understand.

I wish I could just rename the phone to something simple like phone1.
