Vista - Windows Mobile Device Center - Changes Device Name to WINDOWSMOBILE#

Has anyone else seen this happen? I have an HTC Mogul (Currently with DCD 3.2.2). I have the device named what I want. When I sync it with my Outlook using Vista and Windows Mobile Device Center, the Device Name (In Settings > About) Changes to a WINDOWSMOBILE# (#= a number)

Has anyone seen this or found a fix? I have been searching for months with no luck.

Yes it is common....changes all the time....why do you need a fix?........it does not affect the phone at all....

I also should note it only "changes all the time" when you are continuously flashing like me.....lol

Re: Vista - Windows Mobile Device Center - Changes Device Name to WINDOWSMOBILE#

To be completely honest, i have no idea why it would do that. I work for Microsoft as a windows vista support tech, and i have a lot of calls come in about that very issue. I had one person call in and say windows was not recognizing the program because of the pound sigh. Im going to redo the code within device center and see what i can do to fix this.

Re: Vista - Windows Mobile Device Center - Changes Device Name to WINDOWSMOBILE#

Ok. Microsoft is going to be releasing another update for people who have windows mobile device center installed on windows vista. I completely have re-done the windows vista SP1 by editing the base files. If anyone has SP1, be expecting an update very soon. Heres a hint for some Windows mobile users, shhhhh.... Microsoft is going to release video driver updates for th HTC Touch and the HTC Mogul. When I am not sure, but I heard the level 4 research team is making OEM files to enable these features. They are also closely working with Adobe and Sun to make a JAVA VM for windows mobile devices to help enable full website flash content and JAVA capabilities. Right now it is hush hush, but I hope to see progress soon.

Re: Vista - Windows Mobile Device Center - Changes Device Name to WINDOWSMOBILE#

I have a Vogue (Touch) on VzW and have been having this problem and I agree it doesn't cause any "issues" with the phone...however it is really f'n annoying because I personalize my Device Name because it is what is used as the name to be displayed when connected via Bluetooth.

Hope there is a fix!

Re: Vista - Windows Mobile Device Center - Changes Device Name to WINDOWSMOBILE#

Yes, this happens to me as well. It is really more annoying than anything else, because this is also the name available to bluetooth devices (among other things I'm sure). For instance, when I connect to my 'MyGig' in my Jeep it says "WindowsMobile33" instead of the name I recorded for / or gave my device.

This would be akin to something arbitrarily changing your desktop computer name, which it shouldn't!
