    I have 3 wireless blutooth adapters to make my car stereo and surround and bedroom radio wireless but they all have the same device name. Does anyone know of a way to rename them or atleast make my phone see them with a different name?

    If you unpair and then pair, doesn't it give you a screen that allows you to name the device?

    Unfortunately no they're just generic USB devices that just plug in to USB for power and a 3.5mm jack to plug into the radio that's why I was hoping for a way to rename it on my phone to differentiate between them.

    Have you tried a long press on the device name?

    Touch the "gear" beside the current name, then select rename at the top. You can name each one whatever you want.

    Wow thank you for the help. I feel really dumb now lol. I didn't even think the check in settings. The way I was getting to it was just from Turing on blutooth. Which only has pairing options. Thank you guys for all your help.
