    As the title says, there are two devices listed on my wife's market, but she only has 1 phone. How do I delete the old phone from her profile?

    I was told that there is no way currently. That was directly from the Market help section email response to my question. Seems stupid that they can't. I too am in the same boat.

    Market --> My Library (apps) --> My Orders (top right) --> Settings (tab) --> Edit; then you can either re-name or "Hidden in menus". I guess this is as close as I can get. They need to add an option also for "( ) Make default device".

    I'm coming back from Apple. I want to stay with Android, I have had about 4 Android devices. Please can somebody tell me why they will not implement this??Honestly why would Google not let us remove are old devices from the marketplace?Not just "hide" them but actually delete them. Very frustrating.

    Well it's not like they're doing any harm by sitting in the list; the only reason I don't like it is because I hate clutter. :P

    Thanks. I was looking for a way to delete them too. Now all my old devices are hidden from menu.

    I think it's fun to look at all your post devices.

    You can hide what you're not using.

    Exactly, not to mention I hide one, then hide another and the first one I hid reappears....

    This works for about a week, then the old and long-gone items are back. Last time I asked for help on this from the Market help links, I got a "customer satisfaction survey" for the support issue but no actual response from anyone in support...

    i found an option to do it. go to https://play.google.com/store/account

    or simply go to market on your PC, go to the Gear icon on top and go to My Orders & Devices.
    You'll be able to hide it from the market from there

    That does not delete the device. It merely "hides" it, a state that does not stick as it merely sets a flag in the cookie stored in your PC's web browser.

    It works on mine. I did it at home over the weekend. Now I am at work. Using Google Chrome which is NOT synced with my browser at home, just went to the android market and clicked to install a random app, it only showed my Skyrocket and none of the other devices.

    I've got a similar problem. My old devices which I don't use any more shows up in SamsungDive.com
    Anyone knows where SamsungDive picks up your devices? Is it from Google Play/ Market as well?

    It never sticks for me. The longest it's ever worked is about one month.

    Not a very reliable or long-lasting system.

    Talk about overkill... Won't that also delete the user's Market account, their GMail account, their G+ account, their ability to use their current Droid?

    Ok, this subjects been around for awhile so I too want to bring it back up. With exchage and yahoo mail, we can go in and delist the device that we sold, but Google not allowing us to remove these devices is insane. Do they want to push us to iphones? That being said, I am thinking about creating a new account but man that is alot of set up to go back through. Plus, I loose my paid apps? No way to transfer my apps to a new account maybe? Lastly, before I sold the device I performed a factory reset and wiped it clean so what happens if I just leave the account alone? Wouldn't the person I sold it too have to login to the store using my login address and password of which they do not have? If that's the case then I'm safe and don't need to worry about it correct? Please let me know and Thanks.

    I've run into this issue and I always just hide the old device and rename the new one. B/c I flash relentlessly, at one point I had like 10+ devices, which makes it a pain. I checked my devices the other day and I don't see any of my older ones, so perhaps they just "drop off" after a bit?
