When a person is not breathing, permanent brain damage begins after 4 minutes and death in 6 minutes after that. Can you count on help arriving before that time? Learning proper CPR techniques is easy and you can learn it in 30 minutes at CPR Test Center.

Can't delete a device on Alexa phone app
« on: March 30, 2022, 10:32:31 pm »
First time Alexa/Ring user. I created a device for a Ring camera and named it Office. Unfortuantely, I did it a second time so now I have two cameras listed as "office". When I try to access the camera via the Echo 5 she says I have 2 devices named "office". Went into the Alexa app to delete one of the "office" entries.

The internet tells me to do the following but when I do there is no "trash" icon to delete the office entry

Open the Alexa app on your iPhone, iPad, or Android device. Tap "Devices" in the bottom-right corner. ...
Tap "All Devices" and then scroll to and tap the device you want to remove. ...
Tap "Settings" on the device's page.
Tap the trashcan icon (or the word "Trash").

[on Apple app] the Trash icon is in the upper right corner of the screen once you choose the device. I'm not an android user, so I can't speak for the android location.
My Alexa environment includes :
1 Full Sized Echo
3 Echo Dots 2nd gen
2 Echo Dot 3rd gen, One with Clock
1 Echo Spot
Several Hue Lights with a single bridge
5 Fire Tablets (1 as a control panel in Kitchen)
One Ring Doorbell Pro
Also 4 cell phones with Alexa app installed!

Pretty odd.

more info? what model iPhone? updated? Alexa app updated?
( should be since you just downloaded... but never know).

Have you checked other devices to see if the delete trash can appears?

Seems the only reason it wouldn't be available is if this were not the account it was added with. Only one account right? Having seen you're trying to add a second person on the Alexa account somehow, that could be a factor... Is there Anythhing you can add that would help identify this issue?
