When I send out text messages the name show as ICE. How do I change that to my name?
1. What App are you using for messaging?
2. Dow it display that way on your phone, or the recipients phone?
Sounds like you oir the recipient possibly have your name set to ICE in their contacts. Should be a pretty simple fix.
ICE means In Case of Emergency. Does your recipient have you as the one to call?
I don't know....I'll have to check that.....Is there a way to change the name that displays on outgoing texts??
That was it!!! Thanks for the help!!
It's always the simple things
Nevermind, got the answer I needed
You are welcome! Glad to be able to help.
hahaha, I loved this thread and it is cool...
But seriously, lol, how many of you KNOW that if involved in an accident and you are incapacitated in any way, the emergency workers will at some point check your cell phone if you have one and look for a contact of "ICE".
lol, just for those who are unaware...
I knew nothing of that until this issue came up......Good to know......
Meh...they can figure it out and call "home"
An older person who's spouse has a heart condition, might want another family member called first.
Home... well many people live alone and or might prefer someone else to be called. Lol...
It's all ok, just put the person you would MOST want to be contacted in the event of an emergency into the "ICE" contact. Put as much info as possible. You could put some pertinent information (Diabetic, Heart, etc.) too if you like in notes, but there's no assurance they will check that, just the phone number.
Lol, I know. For a lot of people, it's a good thing. But for me, it's just not necessary.
They could call any one of the contacts on my phone and get someone who I would love to have called in an emergency lol. I've only got a dozen or so
I never knew about this either. Thanks!
Separate names with a comma.
