Hi Dannymcd_

Thanks for posting and welcome back to the community.

Sorry to hear you are having issues registering a device. From that screenshot, it shows you still have 5 registered. When you try and un-register, what happens? Any error messages? Have you also tried the browser -

Best wishes,

Thanks for responding John - the message on the screen shot is what I receive after clicking on one of the current devices and selecting Replace and the inputting the name of a new device 

I also tried via the browser but I don’t get an option to replace / edit - see screen shot below 


 Thanks in advance if you have further suggestions 

Hi @Dannymcd_ thanks for your reply, I do apologise for this.

Please allow me to send you a PM so I can look to reset all devices for you, enabling you to start afresh.

Kindly expect a PM from me to arrive shortly and respond directly when you can!

Many thanks

I’ve been trying to replace devices for weeks now and all I ever get is error message “unable to register at the moment try again in a minute “ this has been going on for weeks???


Hi @Deannbob1, thank you for your post.

We're sorry to hear about the problem you've been experiencing 😔

I'll send you a private message so I can look to reset all devices for you. Look out for the envelope in the top right-hand corner. 

If you're on a portable device with a smaller screen, click on the icon in the top right-hand corner and select "messages" from the additional menu options.
