    Have Samsung Galaxy S3. It's paired with my car stereo and comes up as SCH-I535 on my car stereo. My GF is also getting the same phone. Is there a way to change the name of the phone on blue tooth so we can tell easily which phone is which?

    Hmmm... not in the bluetooth options. Another thing I miss about my HTC Incredible.

    Hit the menu soft button when in the Bluetooth settings, and you'll see the following options:[​IMG]

    Awesome. So used to everything being on long presses. Worked like a charm. Not sure why they put it on the gear for the paired devices and not the actual phone, though.
