Cleanup Paired Bluetooth Devices

    Please forgive my ignorance and let me say I searched for an answer on this forum before posting this.

    I want to clean out old Bluetooth devices no longer used.

    Here's what led up to this. I had a Jawbone Icon I bought right after getting my Droid X. It paired and connected without any difficulty whatever. I used it over a year and recently it died. That left me without an earpiece.

    My wife had an older BlueAnt earpiece I paired and connected (no problem). I didn't like it as much as the Jawbone, so I ordered another Jawbone. When it arrived I had trouble getting it to pair with the Droid X. After several tries it did finally pair. However, it won't keep a steady connection and often it fails to connect when turned on. I may be wrong, but I suspect this has something to do with having multiple devices, particularly multiple Jawbone Icon devices paired with my phone.

    I had thought I would delete the pairing and re-do it to get a better job. On my home screen I push the menu button, then "Settings", then "Wireless & Networks", then "Bluetooth Settings". There are two sub-menus at this page, "Bluetooth Settings" and "Bluetooth Devices". The menu button only pulls up a choice of "Scan for Devices".

    Under the "Bluetooth Devices" menu I see entries for various devices including the first Jawbone Icon, the current Jawbone Icon, the BlueAnt, etc. I can find nothing that allows me to delete any of these devices. I would like to delete them all and start over by pairing my current Jawbone Icon.

    Can anybody tell me how to do this?

    Thanks in advance,

    You should be able to long press on the desired device in menu/settings/wireless/bluetooth settings/bluetooth devices...and select unpair.

    Hehe. Happy to help. :) The "long press" is an often forgotten feature.
