    Default Delete Bluetooth Device...?

    Ok.. seriously.. am I missing something.. how does one delete a bluetooth device from the "Bluetooth Devices" list on the Eris? I have been trying to delete another phone that pickedup as a device and cannot figure it out, i've tried holding down on the device name, no options come up, except for Pair or Unpair...

    any recommendations would be greatly appreciated.

    No need to do all that on Android device...........just turn off BT and back on, no need to delete too as it will ONLY pair with a device it has been "locked" to. IF you pair a headset then you get that choice of deletion.

    Try:

    Settings > Wireless Controls > Bluetooth Settings

    now [Click n Hold] your paired Device

    select "Unpair"

    that should "delete" it from your list.

    Wink I think I figured it out for you

    I don't know if you ever got an answer, but I had that same problem just today. I got online to search for the solution. So here is what I did.

    I "unpaired" the device I didn't want anymore, then I pressed "scan for devices", the one I didn't want went away.

    Hope this helps.

    Default Deleting Paired Device - Solved!

    Thanks for that solution to scan after unpairing, that DID make the unwanted bluetooth device/s go away.

    Thanks people. I have been trying for the last couple of days to do this.
    Pair and hold device name down and unpair and goodbye. Got to really love a forum.

    Thumbs down Re: Delete Bluetooth Device...?

    Thanks also from me, I had to delete my Bluetooth device. Seems as though my new Droid want to always use the bluetooth on a phone call and automatically deactivates the internal speaker, even though the bluetooth is not activated. When on a call the phone continually turns off the speaker, then i press the speaker button, it turns it off again after a few seconds. I unpaired my Motorola BT and now the phone works fine. Am I missing something here, the Motorola phone doesn't even want to work correctly with the Motorola BT

    I can't pair/unpair the old device because I no longer have it. It died, that is why I need to delete it. I can't find a way to just delete it. thanks.

    Thanks LGK - the extra step of scanning took care of the issue.

    I have a similar problem with my Samsung Galaxy S3. I already unpaired my bluetooth device but still it could scan the old device. I "paired" the bluetooth device to another Android phone and rename the buletooth device and changed the PIN to he defaukt PIN.

    Unfortunately, after renaming and changing the buletooth device, my Samsung Galaxy S3 (GS3) could still detect the old name of my bluetooth device and I could not pair it because the GS3 was asking me to enter a PIN to the bluetooth device.

    Appreciate feedback.

    I did this with blue tooth turned on
    select blue tooth settings. Press and hold on the device you want to delete. you will get an options screen. select unpair

    Thanks, one note to add, on my device it isn't a long press you need to tap on the "sliders" to the far right of the device name.

    The answer needs to be updated... With Android 4.3+, all you have to do is go to Settings... Connection... then click on Bluetooth... there you will see a listing of everything that's paired to your device... and ONLY THERE will you see an icon with the option to REMOVE paired device..

    On a forum for the HTC Droid Eris running Android 2.1, no, I don't think the answer needs to be updated.
