Hello Susan! Thank you for your question. I am a licensed computer / tablet professional with over ten years of experience, and I will be assisting you today.

I'm sorry about the issue. Where is the wrong name showing on the iPad? Is it in a particular app?

Please reply at the box below. Thank you.

Customer: replied 1 year ago.

no. it shows up on my email address as though it was sent from that name instead of mine. Even though the email address is mine. The name belongs to my friend who bought the pad for me ... its not an unknown name.. yesterday was at the mac store and the iPad had to be reset ... now i have this problem..

Expert:  Viet - Mac Tech replied 1 year ago.
Does this issue only occur when using email?

What email do you use, such as Hotmail, Yahoo, Gmail, AOL, etc.?

Are you using the app called Mail for email? Or do you use any other app?

Do you mean when you send an email message to someone, it shows the wrong name? Is it in the signature of any email message that you've sent? Please reply at the box below. Thank you.

did you get it?

Expert:  Viet - Mac Tech replied 1 year ago.

I just got it. Did you do this:

- Go to Settings -> iCloud -> your account, then edit / change the name there.

- If needed, go to Settings > Mail, Contact, Calendars -> iCloud -> your account, then edit / change the name there.

- If needed, press and hold both the Power (On / Off) button and the Home button (which is located right below the screen) together for at least 10 seconds, until the Apple logo appears, then wait a bit, then check.

Please let me know. Thank you.
