    I've seen advice like this:

    and this is what I'm doing, but the problem is with devices that I never successfully pair with in the first place. Namely, my laptop and, weirdly enough, another cell phone (long story, but I was trying to pair a bluetooth headset that already had a connection to another phone, and the Droid picked up on the phone, not the headset, because I forgot to turn the phone off.

    So I've tried everything to rescan, reset, etc. I've succeeded in wiping all traces of the bluetooth speakerphone and headset I WANT on the phone (no problem there, I can repair later), but what the phone will not let go of is the devices it couldn't successfully pair with in the first place.

    I know it's OCD of me, but I just want to clean off this list. As of now, I have the phone that it's got on the "phantom list" completely turned off, and still on every rescan it shows up as a device and says "pair with this device".

    If I long-press the item, it only offers me the one choice to "pair and connect," which is obviously not what I want to do.

    Short of a factory hard reset, what is there to do?
