Why are there 5+ pc showing on my z10 along with my main BBLINK PC??



Any know why when I look at LINK paired devices it shows multiple desktops, including my pc that I use link with.


I was told that its like how wifi picks up networks, but I still don't understand where these desktops are from??

From what I've seen, every link install creates a new device in that list. An old install turns into "desktop-****". I did a test install of link on windows to try it out and after removing I ended up with a ghost paired device. You can touch and hold, then delete those desktops... but they will come back. I haven't gotten rid of it permanently, maybe they are restored to the phone from BlackBerry after deleting? So, I'm not sure why they stay there. Someone else have an answer?
