I got a new iPhone 4s 1 week ago and I just recognize that the name of my phone is not my name. It’s brand name of a shop where I bought my iPhone. They entered that name when they active & setup my phone. Therefore I need to change it to my real name in order for my friends and other devices can identify me. 🙂
Changing the name of your iPhone 4s is very simple with just few taps and you can do that right on your phone; no need to connect to iTunes. Below are steps:
Change Phone Name Of iPhone 4s
- 1. Turn on your phone and press Home button to return to the Home screen.
- 2. Tap the Settings button.
- 3. Choose General tab.
- 4. Choose About tab.
- 5. Feel free to enter your name then tap Done button to save the new name for your iPhone.
After finishing those simple steps to change the name of your iPhone, the new name should be appear when connect your phone to your computer via iTunes or when you access the iCloud.
I haven’t tested on other iOS devices (iPhone 4, iPad, iPod, etc) but I think those steps should be the same.
