I had to exchange my phone at the Apple store for some dead pixel issues. The Genius named my phone "Shaun iPhone".

Now I know it may not be a big deal to some but I'm a person of detail. I'd like to rename it so it's - "Shaun's iPhone".

Does anyone know if I can and if so, how ?

Thanks...
 

0s and 1s

When the phone is synced, double click its name on the left side of the iTunes menu, and it will highlight the name. Change to your liking.

Double click on "Shaun iPhone" (located in the column on the left side of iTunes) and edit. BTW, my iPhone's name is "Shaun's iPhone"...lol

I guess 0s and 1s types faster then me...

Well dang-on, I was too anxious to wait for a reply and chose to restore hoping this would allow me to change my name. I didn't think of double clicking my name, I only right-clicked and it gave no options.

Well now I have to wait until after 3 PM EST for my phone to re-activate. Activations aren't taking place at this time due to AT&T system maintenance.

Could this be because they're getting ready to roll out a software update?

Thanks for the responses guys.
