    In the new 8.1, under your Text Message Forwarding settings... I have multiple listings for my devices (An iMac and rMBP) - How do I go about removing the multiple listings? Probably from clean installing them the other day...

    Pretty sure you can't remove them just an option to disable that device

    It's strange - The devices are only listed in here. No duplicates on iCloud.com or anything..

    I have the same issue, my MBPr shows up twice. Will changing the password actually work?

    Yes. When you change your password. All existing devices, ghost devices will be removed.

    ----------

    This happened because when you did a clean install, you didn't sign out from your iMessage.

    I have the same problem. My MBP shows up 3 times because I've changed its name over the years.

    highly unlikely, changing name 3 times would not have incurred it showing up 3 different times.
    it cld mean u did a 3 times clean install, and logged into iMessage 3 times without signing out from them before each clean install.

    Ya, that's what I meant. I must have done clean installs without logging out and used a new name.

    Changing the password works, although without changing it... How long should it takes to remove by itself? I think it's because of the "ghosts" that my Safari history doesn't sync...
