I just noticed this a couple of days ago. I was trying to reset a bluetooth watch so i tried forgetting the device on my iphone 5 (6.1. and jailbroken) but it would not forget it. I tried the other devices that i paired with and it would not forget them either. I've tried turning off the phone, bluetooth and the devices and still they are there. Any suggestions? I noticed this after the jailbreak but I hadn't tried forgetting a device in a while so I don't really know if it has anything to do with it. I did reset that same watch about a month ago and the bluetooth did forget the device. Any kind of help would be appreciated. Thanks in advance.

Start it up in Safe Mode and then do Forget this Device.

Took me all morning to figure it out!

Re-pair and your in business!

Kind sir,

I was having the same issue. I was about to start a painful restore on my iPhone 5. You deserve a beer!

Let me tell you... I had the hardest time getting my phone to forget and re-pair to my vehicles bluetooth. Even reset the settings on the phone which let me forget the device. Could not get it to re-pair no matter what.

This worked perfectly! Thanks so much for sharing this!

iPad Air - Forget This Device Problem

Not a word outta anyone about this being an old thread.

Thanks csunflip!

My iPad Air is not jalibroken. I updated to OS8 last week. Yesterday I traded in my 5s for a 6.

I've paired my iPhone 6 with my iPad. However, I cannot get rid of the 5s in my Bluetooth list. The forget this device is greyed out. Any suggestions for a non-jben iPad?

Thanks!

I have the same problem. I have paired my iPad mini to my iPhone 5s once and then updated to iOS 8 and now trying again to pair with constant failures, and not able to forget device as it's greyed out.
None of the devices is jailbroken.

Had a long chat with an Apple genius over the phone. She was not able to resolve the problem. Her last recommendation was to a complete re-set, i.e., re-install iOS8, etc. Haven't done that yet. She says Apple has not heard of this problem.
