    So how do I remove bluetooth devices from my bluetooth file transfer list? I have a few extra phones in there that I no longer use.
    THx in advance.

    I have the same problem too! They show up under the "Browse Files". I don't have those devices anymore. How can I remove them? They are annoying me. :mad:

    Removing Bluetooth file exchange listings

    This is a reply to an old post, but may help others with the file exchange listings

    Go to: Home > Library > Preferences and locate the com.apple.bluetooth.plist
    and the com.apple.fileExchange.plist and send both to trash "don't delete yet"

    Remove your items from isync by highlighting each item then toolbar > delete

    Go to your device and remove/delete the list to the Mac.

    Add the device that you would like to currently use ( bluetooth set-up )
    and re sync the device.

    File transfer will now only show current device and no other, this works on 10.4 but it may be similar to 10.5 (worth a try) once completed delete the trash.

    Hope it helps :D
