Whenever I sync on any computer my 3G iPhone, it will recognize and sync but doesn't show my original name for the phone. How do I replace it?

I assume you're using iTunes to sync? – bneely Feb 8 '12 at 23:11

In the iTunes source list, select the device, then click on its name again and hold the mouse button down until the device name becomes editable.
