iPhone, You phone, everybody...
So my wife and I have the same brand of phone (iPhone).

As we both are paired to the same car, albeit not being connected at the same time (I don't think we are, but I may be wrong), is there a way to identify our respective phones by our names in the car, instead of both appearing as "iPhone"?

I was thinking of something along the lines of "Stud muffin" and "The little woman." Ok...I probably deserved it...that is the comment of, "Your wife probably won't appreciate being called "Stud muffin."

But there a way for our respective names to appear and identify which phone belongs to who, in case we have to delete one, for whatever reason, instead of "iPhone"? I would get in big trouble if I deleted the wrong one.

My sincere thanks to those who respond, with particular kudos to the 47%ers.

Richard :)

On your iPhone select Settings, General, About, Name. Change it to whatever you like - His, Hers, whatever. The name will appear in the upper right corner of your Nav screen when the phone is connected.

Thanks! I'll try it.

I wish you Fenwayphiles a better result next time 'round with the Red Sox.

With gratitude,
