I just bought a Glaxy S4.  When I did setup, I accidentally spelled my name wrong (big thumbs).

Is there enayway to change without doing a reset?  Apologies if this has been addressed before.  I did a search but the word owners appears too frequently.

Sorry - I don't know the answer you are after, but couldn't resist posting. :)

Gooseybhai: change your name by deed poll !


Funny you say that! I asked our new HR Manager to do the same thing as we were having an issue changing the name on her desk phone - even sent her the paperwork for changing it.

Not sure if this works on touchwiz, but in the people app (your contact list) under ME, select yourself and then hit the triple dots to edit your profile. You should be able to change your name there.

Try - Settings | Lock Screen | Owner Information




Keep calm, and carry on posting.
