    Had my phone with me today, did more texting that usual, but not a whole lot - battery ran down quickly. I got home to recharge, hooked up to ITunes, and it said syncing Mikey's iphone - not my name, nor anyone that uses my laptop! Calendar is still there, photos still there, most of music gone (that may be something I did) - but how did Mikey's Iphone get there? Anyway to change it?

    I reset it through General Settings - is still jailbroken (?), but Mikey baffles me.

    Anyone have any ideas?

    Just rename it in iTunes I believe is all you have to do (single click on 'Mikeys phone' and then change the name). Did you buy it new?

    I did buy it new, about a month ago.

    Wow, if I had really thought about it, I could have figured that out - thanks!

    Anyone ever have that happen? I just downloaded 200 new songs to it last night, and I am 99% Mikey wasn't there then!

    Do you have an open WiFi connection that you connect to?

    I haven't seen it with my iPhone, but I have seen other items in iTunes appear that were in no way associated with me. Don't know if that might be the case here but just a thought.

    Bodey - where are you? Florida here. If not close by, that would toss out the wifi connection theory. Not that I don't appreciate the advice!

    I have the same problem and I figured WHY. Not just how to fix it.

    You most likely installed the "YouTube Activator 1.1.x". This package was created by "SpikeyMikey303" aka Mikey. The Activator was packaged with some of Mikey's personal settings including the hostname "Mikey's iPhone". You can fix this by right clicking on the device in iTunes and renaming it back to whatever it was.
