How to change Activesync "Profile Name"

When I first connect my Smartphone, it will create a partner profile and display the name on the activesync screen. How do I change that name ? I tried changing the owner name but it does not work. Thanks for your advice.

An even easier method (at least this works on my Samsung Blackjack) is:

Start Menu > Settings > Connections > Bluetooth > My Information Setting

On that screen, enter the desired name where it says, "Device Name."

Thank you, thank you. :D I have a BlackJack II and had already named it and synced it with my office pc and my laptop running Windows XP. I just bought an new laptop with Vista and somehow in the set up process with the new laptop my device was renamed. I don't know how yet.

It was good to finally find someone who did not automatically assume that anyone reading these posts wants to or is comfortable editing the registry and what-not. I changed it back using the above menu. It must be the only place I did not look. It's not really logical since I'm using a USB connection with both machines, but whatever. Now when I get back to the house and hook it back up to the Vista laptop, we will see what happens.
