Changing the device's name.

Novice

Right now, my phone just has a generic device name.  I'd like to customize it, but the instructions in your faq don't work any more because the appropriate button isn't there.  Does anybody have currently working instructions?

Which phone model do you have?

I have a Zenfone V, ASUS_A009.  I've been trying to follow the instructions in your faq about changing the name through the web, but they tell me to click on a link that isn't there.  I'd do it directly on the phone, but it doesn't allow you to edit or change the Device Name which is currently the model number.

It isn't my FAQs. It is Verizon's FAQs.

I was referring to the faq on this site, not one that you had personally created.  In any event, do you have an answer?

I can't change it directly on the phone, so I went to the Verizon Knowledge Base and found a link to a faq that's supposed to give instructions: it says to go to Manage Your Device and there's a link to a page that lets you change the device's name, but the link isn't there any more.

Here are the exact instructions:

   Go to the Account Overview page in My Verizon.

    Click Edit Device Name next to the device you want to name.

    Ingresa los nombres para uno o más de tus dispositivos.

    Click Save Changes.

Alas, they fail because there isn't a link named "Edit Device Name" on that page.

I feel your pain, dude. This still hasn't been corrected. Those old instructions still do not work.

You guys on prepaid..

Prepaid My Verizon does not support changing phone name. (Nickname) You can change the name for bluetooth, Wi-Fi, Direct, etc. in settings. At least you can in my Android. Its is under "About phone > Phone name".
