I think it will be removed after a week. From http://support.apple.com/kb/HT5372 under "Removing Tabs from the Tab List::
"... If you no longer have access to the device that that you used to browse that tab, the tab will automatically be cleared from the list after 7 days, if not updated.

I was able to remove the old phone tab by signing back into icloud on that device and then closing all tabs. This removed the device name from the iCloud tabs on my other devices.
It is safe to assume that this would have happened on its own after 7 days as per the support document.

Yep that will work. Didn't suggest it because I didn't realize the old phone still had service. Glad you resolved it.

I was afraid that when that happened there would still be a section for that device's tabs when I looked at iCloud tabs on my other devices. This is not the case. A device with no tabs open does not appear in the iCloud tabs.

Before formatting my Macbook. I wish I had closed all the tabs. Because I'm seeing 1 tab opened from my old device. And same named second device I'm seeing active and normal operation of safari icloud tab feature. ghosh i really hope it goes away on it's own after a week. not that it's a big deal but it's just annoying.

I just formatted and repurposed my old iMac, and now I see the iCloud Tabs from this device in the list. @lak601, et al. can you confirm they disappeared after a week?
@lak601, like you said, "it's not a big deal, but just annoying."

It will disappear. Just takes a few days. It will work itself out :)
