Changing the 8525 Bluetooth Name

<1 min read

Cingular 8525

By default the Bluetooth device name on the Cingular 8525 is the owner's registered name.

The device name can be changed by using a registry editor to modify the following key:

\HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Bluetooth\Settings\Local Name

Worked like charm for me.

Is that really something you should have to use a registry editor to change?

Yeah, I guess HTC/Cingular want to make it really difficult for you to own more than one device.
