change phone name in wifi and bluetooth

WiFi and Bluetooth are two of the most common ways of transferring data from one source to another in Android. While you are searching for a Bluetooth or a WiFi connection to connect to, you are most likely going to see a common name of a device or something custom, people may think that using a custom name for either is a big deal but in real it is actually quite simple. If you are an Android user and you want to change the device name of your phone so it appears as something else in Bluetooth or WiFi, you can do so by following a rather simple guide.

Although, due to the limitations in older Android versions, this method only works on Android 4.2 Jellybean and above.
