    I see a file in Astro File called "devicefriendlyname". when I open it it just says GT-I9000 in an edit field.

    Can I overwrite this with something unique to me? And if I do, where will that show? Is there any point?

    Thanks

    Anyone? Just wondering what the devicefriendlyname file is and whether it's worth getting all excited about?

    Cheers

    Can't believe nobody has replied to this question yet.
    You can write whatever you like in the edit field. I think it identifies your phone over bluetooth and that's about it.

    Cheers

    I found this as well!
    I thought it might change the message at the start (it says GT-9000 when it turns on) but it didn't work. That's probably a graphic.

    Anyway, you're probably right, it's probably some default name for pairing, but I don't think it's for Bluetooth.
