    Default How to remove bluetooth paired devices

    Hi, since manually updating to ICS, I can't for the life of me figure out how to remove my bluetooth headset and start over. I can't find the option to delete it. Since the update it rarely connects so I want for set it up again. Can anyone help? I can only find the option to unpaired which doesn't seem to do anything. Thanks

    Ok so I ended up doing a factory reset because things were just acting screwy a little now it pairs fine. I still think there should be an option to remove it though.

    Long press on the paired item in bluetooth settings.

    Since upgrading to ICS I can't do it. Long pressing just makes it pair.

    Touch the little gear icon to the right of the item. That should give you an option to "unpair".

    I think I found the answer to this. You "unpair" the device and then do a reboot while the device is not reachable. Some folks say just a "rescan" will get rid of it, but I had to do reboot on my phone.

    I can't seem to get Bluetooth to work with any device other than my Jabra Helo stereo headsets since upgrading to ICS. The phone is showing that I'm "paired", but when trying to transfer photos or files to/from my computer, it just gives me "failed to connect" errors. Frustrating!!

    Select Menu > Settings > Bluetooth On. Touch the little gear icon to the right of the device to be unpaired. That should give you an option to "UNPAIR". Just tapping "UNPAIR" does NOT work. Press and hold for several seconds on "UNPAIR" before releasing. Then the next screen should show the device as unpaired. Restart the phone to completely delete the entry.

    Hi. I was reading this post today as I had exactly the same issue. I have a Samsung Galaxy II (GT-N9010) and a Samsung Note 10.12 tablet (GT-N8010) here in the UK. I am running 4.04 (ICS) on the phone, and 4.12 (Jellybean) on the tablet.
    I, too, had these ghosts when I attempted to connect via Bluetooth. The tablet was fine but the phone had two entries called GT-N8010 and one named Samsung Tablet. When I tried any of them the upload was either unsuccessful or the device was unavailable.
    Tried what was available, to no avail, so I switched everything off and took out the phone battery and hey presto, one device (GT-N8010) and the transfer worked

    Same here but on a Note 2. Multiple things I had paired with in the past but no way to delete them. That's stupid.

    You "unpair" the device and then do a reboot works fine on samsung grand.

    If you have upgraded from ICS to Jelly bean you may not be able to see the gear icon nor have the option to delete the device you have listed .
    1. All you have to do make sure the blue tooth devices you are trying to remove are switched OFF.
    2. Reboot your phone with the blue tooth powered ON

    works...

    Turning Bluetooth off and then on again, removed my Unpaired (Long press on Bluetooth item) Bluetooth headset from the then-listed-in-"Available" list.

    Hi,

    I have tried the suggestion given by you it was very useful, after unpairing of blutooth done, switch off the phone take out the battery and then switch on , all unpaired bluetooths will be removed.

    This worked for me. Turn off your Bluetooth device, unpair and then reboot your phone. Thanks davis.rob
