Mobile manufacturers are always coming up with new ways to add connectivity to their devices and if you use a Samsung Galaxy Nexus, you’ll know that your options are varied.

  3. Hit ‘Wireless Networks’
  4. Touch ‘Bluetooth’
  5. Touch the ‘Menu’ icon

  7. Type in your chosen name e.g: Joe Bloggs’ Galaxy Nexus
  8. Tap ‘Rename’
