Here's how to reset a Bluetooth

When you pair a Bluetooth device with your cell phone or computer, it asks for a PIN number or a security code. The connection between both the Bluetooth devices is established on the basis of this code. If you are no longer interested in connecting both the devices in the future, you should reset the code. By resetting, the Bluetooth devices will delete the existing code and will ask you to retype it in case you ever decide to pair them again.
