    We can see that we are currently paired with one device
    .
    This device is labeled "ORB". What we want to do is change the name of this paired device. The name shown is the standard name, it is simply the default name for that particular device. It will be a lot easier for us if we can rename devices, with more personal names such as; "Mom", "Dad", "Tony", "James", "Work", or something that makes it a lot easier for us to identify the different devices. This is especially useful if we are using Bluetooth in a public place, where there are lots of devices present.
