I know I can choose "Hidden in menus" and never see the devices again when I install a application. But I don't want my old mobile phones display in my account settings anymore. I have sold those phones already and never use them again!

In fact, the list look likes a cemetery in my mind now. ;(

  • I had two old Android devices, an HTC Magic and a Nexus S. Before giving them away I factory reset both. But the HTC Magic is no longer listed at Play Store, the Nexus S is. Jan 24 '13 at 10:13

As things currently stand, there is no way to disassociate a device from the ones shown in your Market Account. Keeping them hidden is the only way that Google currently offers.

  • Does any one has any idea on why Google doesn't allow removing devices from your account? Dec 14 '11 at 9:09
  • I wonder what would happen if I decide to sell my device, and the new owner signs it up. Is it then "our device" instead of "his device"?

  • I guess more than the device it's the account that matters. Android now has support for multiple users on a single device (albeit for tablets only).

A funny thing was happen to me: I had a HTC Wildfire S, HTC Desire S and actually a HTC Sensation. The Wildfire S was Hardware bugged and exchanged by the Desire S which I gaved to my wife - both devices still in my market account - when i bouhgt the Sensation they was added as normal to my market, restored a coupple of apps, settings a.e. as well as installed few apps from the market. I recognized a death pixel on my sensation, did therefore a ful factory restore (when you switch on the phone keep the power button pushed and same time the volume down - this is putting you in the service menu - select factory reset with the volume button and press the power button again) then i brought the device to the service to replace it with a new one. After I did the setup again on the new device and WONDER!! the old sensation wasn't in my market account anymore!!! no idea why and how but this was the fact. Maybe it' neccessary to do the Hard-Factory Reset to remove the device...
