Need to go to settings and scroll down to "Store". When you open it , go to the bottom and check what email address is listed. I am sure when you put in the correct email address , that should solve the problem. I had the same problem with my wife's and daughter's iphone. Changed the addresses and solved the problem.

She hasn't. This problem happened the day we upgraded to 5.0. She went to buy something right after upgrading and it showed my email. It had never done that before in the almost a year we've both had iPhones.
We've both always synced our iPhones to the same iTunes on the same computer and this was never an issue. Something about 5.0 changed that.
It's not a big deal really. Thought it was something easy that could be fixed but from reading replies across multiple sites other people are having the same issues, but I haven't seen anything that fixes it.

Unplug your iPhone from the computer
Go to control panel
Click on hardware and sound
click on devices and printers
right click on the offending iPhone name
click on properties
click on driver tab
Plug iPhone back in
Now I have seen some folks tell you go into the registry and fix it, but do that at your own risk.

Re: Wrong IPhone name showing on My Computer
Okay so all you have to do is go under the SUMMARY tab in the itunes library when your phone is plugged in and double click on your wifes name.. Erase it and put yours back in. it seems to me that you havent lost data, its just a name issue.
