    After putting it off I at last updated the software on my phone after connecting it to Kies.

    Update? Seemed more of a new program to me.

    Anyway I am now not sure if this new software is GB or JB, In the 'About Phone' it states:
    Android Version 4.1.2
    Baseband I8160XXMF1
    Build JZ054K.I8160XXMF1
    Kernel Version 3.0.31 1106830

    Whereas before it stated 'Gingerbread'.

    There was an option before to Name the phone, in my case Alans G ACE 2
    (as opposed to my wifes Galaxy Ace 2) so the car's bluetooth came up with the right phone. I cannot find anywhere to name the phone now, has the option been removed or hidden? If removed is there an app that can do this?

    Thanks for the help

    Alan.

    4.1 is jellybean.

    You may be able to name what your phone shows up as in your Bluetooth settings

    Thanks for the reply, now at least I know what OS I have! I did find the re-name option under Bluetooth so that's a relief.

    Thanks once again

    Alan.

    Glad that worked :)

    I've never used that phone before and its amazing how different things can be from phone to phone, even while on the same version of android.

    Thanks for letting me know it worked! :D

    I'm still worried about updating, read that people had issues with it. Is the update to JB ok now and should I update?

    Hello Alan,

    In the about phone section that you mention, here is a little secret that not everyone knows about, if you tap a number of times on where it says Android Version 4.1.2 then you should see JellyBean appear which is very nice actually.
