Name Change?

Hi, all.

I can't change my in-game name and there was no option to do so when I created my account. My iPhone7 is set at my real birthday (I'm 34), as is my EA account, although I don't know if that matters or not. There's no pencil for me to change my character name. Can I call EA and have them change it? I realize I might not be able to access chat no matter what, but at least players would be able to easily tell who I am. I read other threads but couldn't find an answer as to what to do if there's no pencil by my character name.

    If you can't change name or access chat it sounds like you're in a minor account. I think there's a workaround I saw on Reddit, let me see if I can find it.

    Edit: found this for iOS:

    Reset to factory settings, and set up as a new device when it restarts, going through all the steps
    Sign out of Game Center in settings
    Install and run SWGOH
    DO NOT SIGN INTO GAME CENTER WHEN THE PROMPT COMES UP
    Go through the tutorial
    Wonder how you ever managed without 4x speed
    At the end of the tutorial set your age correctly when prompted
    Close SWGOH
    Load it up again and this time sign back into Game Center
    Your profile should sync and you can enjoy the wonders of guild chat etc.

    Let me know if it works!

  • Worked like a charm!

    I am Mol Eliza no more. It was completely worth resetting my iPad to make this change.
  • I had the same problem, and followed FailingCrab's instructions and it worked perfect!

    Don't bother calling EA...if you started it as an underage(minor) account, they won't (can't) change it. Follow these instructions.
