The weird issue is the cheap BT keyboard works well so regardless of the thought it's the Priv does not seem right, I would suggest re-doing the connection including the other devices.
Over the last month or 2, I've completely deleted (told the Priv to "forget") the Logitech K780 device, then attempted to re-pair the 2, more times than I can even remember. Whether with my original K780, or the replacement that just arrived a few days ago, the result has been the same, no matter how many times I try again. After unpairing, I've rebooted the Priv, both via soft, and hard, reboot methods. I also regularly clear my temp cache data on the Priv, to maximize the phone's performance.

I went digging through my phone, looking for any and all Bluetooth settings that I could change, to see if there was a way to more thoroughly delete its memory of that pairing. I haven't found any security settings or anything else that I could change that would help. So if you have specific advice for specific settings I should go to and look at, please post detailed instructions here.

This whole thing began because one day, when I turned the K780 on, it wouldn't connect to my Priv, whereas it always had before. So, I tried deleting it and then re-pairing it, a process which has failed ever since, regardless of which of the 3 device buttons I try to pair it with. So, at this point, I'm unwilling to even unpair and then re-pair any of my other Bluetooth devices, for fear that the same thing might happen again.
