For the benefit of those not on the Talks UK list, perhaps some kind
soul might be able to help with the following query.

I'm sure someone will hopefully have an answer for this, so here goes.

I have my own N82 now, so decided to rename my work N82 in the Bluetooth
section just so I know which phone Bluetooth is seeing when I am backing
them both up using Phone Switch or the Transfer Data tool.  I still use
and love my N91, but wanted to copy all my contacts across to my new
phone, and back up the contacts on my work handset.  When I renamed my
work phone, and got my N91 to search for it, it still came up with N82,
even though the name I had given it was displayed in Bluetooth.  Yet I
have seen lots of people give their phones all sorts of funny names, and
they are displayed as such when searching for them in Bluetooth.  So the
question then.  Why is my work phone showing up on my N91 as Nokia N82
when I search for it, even when I choose the More Devices option to make
a fresh search?  Surely it should come up as the name I have given it?


Any suggestions welcome, thanks.  And yes, all the contacts did copy
over perfectly, even though my work phone had a different name from the
one the N91 was seeing.
