    Facebook icon now auto installed OTA - Icon Removal?

    Advertisement



    Hey all,

    About 2 weeks ago i realised that a facebook icon appeared on my home screen. went into applications so i could delete it but it isnt listed there. I didnt install the shortcut either, well not intentionally at least.
    As strange as this may sound to many people, I am not a facebook user and would like to know how to remove it.

    Thanks in advance

    You can delete the service book for it at Options>Advanced>service book.

    The only thing with this is, every time you resend the service books it will appear again.

    I would suggest you just hide it.

    Yup the delete service book bit worked, but as lucky said I'm sure it'll return when I resend service books. Thanks for the input.

    This is true

    Facebook app is the devil app. Everytime I do a battery pull, soft reset or service book update that damn little icons shows up. The only way is to delete it via options > advanced options > Service book > delete facebook

    Having just recently reinstalled "Facebook" after once deleting (Icon begone) it and decided to give it one more chance, I

    uninstalled it ( Options > Advanced Options > Applications )

    Rebooted, Alt > Shift > Del.

    No more Icon and no Facebook.

    I then resent my Service Books, received them and Rebooted, still No Icon and No Facebook.

    Now, guess I will reinstall it...

    I just lost all my apps recently and had to start from scratch and I noticed that facebook was still their too, now I understand why
    This is my Blackberry. There are many like it, but this one is mine. Without me my Blackberry is useless. Without my Blackberry I am useless.
