How do you delete a Honeywell wireless device?

If you want to remove a Honeywell wireless device that you have previously programmed and installed, you must first delete the sensor from your Honeywell security system to avoid trouble signals. You will need an alphanumeric alarm keypad like the Honeywell 6160 to access the advanced *56 zone programming menu mode. Once you have entered the *56 menu mode, you need to enter the (2) digit zone number of the device you are removing. The summary screen will be displayed and you should press [*] to advance to the next programming option. The selected (2) digit zone type will be displayed and you should enter [00] which will set the zone type to 'Not used' which will effectively delete the sensor from the security system. Press the [*] key to confirm your selection and then exit the zone programming menu mode before pressing [*99] to exit programming entirely.

If you wanted to keep the device programmed as a local device but not have the device trigger any alarms to Alarm Grid's central station, you can also set the report code for the zone of the device to '00'. The sensor would still cause a local alarm but no signals from that zone would ever be sent to the central station.

When you enter a zone type of 00, then press *, you should get a prompt of "Delete Zone, Yes or No?" Are you seeing that, and if so, are you saying yes?
I've followed the instruction above and when my system goes into it's scheduled alarm period, it still sees the zone. I have an Ademco 20P keypad 6060V and wireless keypad 5828V. What am I doing wrong?
