Is there a way to change the name that displays without completely resetting the tab and losing all the data? I want to give my wife my tab. All the other e-mail and other info stays the same.

If you get one from someone else it will use their Google account.. You will need to reset to change this

But as it is yours I am sure she can use it

The manual for the Tab 3 (GT-P3113) says there's a way in "lock screen" to access the Owner's Name. When I go to "lock screen" there is no language about Owner's name. Could that be an operating system issue? I've attached a snap shot of the one relevant page in the manual. Gail

when you say "it will use their Google account" - what do you mean? The person to whom I gave my tab 2 has successfully gone to her own Google account. Mine is no longer mentioned.

I'm running 4.1.2 and owner info is in lock screen, so maybe this has obviously changed in 4.2.2, although from the manual image, they are the exact options I have too. Are you in settings - lock screen ?
