Cell Phone Help

Thu Jan 31, 2002 10:20 am

I have a Nokia 5851i- have you seen some cell phones that say the owner's first name, or their nickname, instead of Cricket or Altell? How do you change that? I haven't been able to find anything in the instruction booklet or Altell's website. Thanks for your help.

Hi,
As far as I know the Nokia 5xxx series don't have the "Profiles" capability. If you don't have the "Profiles" option under the menu then you can't put your name, nickname, or whatever on your cell phone screen. Hope that helps.

Actually I have the nokia 33xx series and it does allow the profile option, but in the profiles, you still cant change the name on the screen, just like the sounds of the phone.

Twaneedsnohelp,

I also have the Nokia 33xx series. What do you mean you can't change the name? All of the profiles' name except for the "Normal" profile can be change. Just go to any profile and select "customize" and then select "profile name". If you mean the wireless carrier's name that cannot be changed on the screen, then you're right it cannot be changed, it's automatically displayed everytime you turn on your cell phone.

Well thats the whole point of the thread. Who cares if the profile is called meeting or shmeeting. That means nothing, what it says on the "home screen" is what counts and thats what Notar520AC asked about.
