How to change DNS IP on Windows 8.1 Phones

I cannot seem to find a way to change the DNS IP associated with my WiFi on my Windows Phone 8.1 devices.  It is easy to do on iOS but doesn't appear as evident on Windows Phone 8.1.  
I have accessed Settings > Wi-Fi and pressed and hold the specific Wi-Fi network to generate menu list.  [Edit, Disconnect, Delete]  I choose 'Edit' and can see the DNS IP but it is not editable.
Does anyone know of a way to edit the IP of DNS on a Windows 8.1 Phone?

Thank You

Dear charlie.

I am also as poor as you are by using windows Lumia 625 Windows based phone.
The misfortune of experiencing the windows phone I realized that the FIXED IP is not enabled, I could not believe, as a system which uses internet does not allow you to set an ip, dns gatway.
So All those things are not allowed as of now in the Windows Phone but iOS & Android allowing this from their starting versions.
