In the Android app I have not been up able to get the device name to save. The “Your Name” will reset to “Unknown (4 character device id)”. My devices are TTGO TBeams and they are running 1.2.46.
First post here so please let me know if more information is needed. Thank you!
I have flashed to 1.2.47 but also still have the issue of not being able to set the user name.
Android app 1.2.50 and t-beam v1 flashed 1.2.47

this is a bug in android app 1.2.50
07:18PM - 28 Nov 21 UTC
bug introduced in release 1.2.50 broke `EditText` calls with `IME_ACTION_DONE`.
PR #293 failed to notice `EditText.on(...)` (line 31-41) isn't local, so changes affected calls from outside MessagesFragment.
- reverted changes to `EditText.on(...)`;
- added `EditText.onActionSend(...)` with custom settings only for calls from MessagesFragment.

I also had this problem and set it up on my computer with the meshtastic command.
meshtastic --port /dev/ttyUSB0 --set-ham NAME
Same here, android 7.0 and android 10
Change name seem work below android 7 but not in android 10

what is your android app version?
Same for me - 1.2.50 running on Android 12

upgrade to version 1.2.51
I just checked to try and upgrade mine from 1.2.50 to 1.2.51 to fix the naming issue and the amazon app store only has 1.2.50 available for download.
Currently running 1.2.50 on Android 10.
Edit: I actually am unable to get anything to save in the app, including the name. It is not letting me save the input for seconds to sleep or show gps either.
Is there another way to edit this stuff?
I mention before, all above android 7 seem not edit name / save
