I installed an early version of Yahoo! Go. I found it to be very flakey and the longer I used it, the more flakey it got. (More and more things stopped updating reliably.) For example, not that I care about entertainment, but that feed got stuck several months ago and won't update at all. Same with my stock portfolio which is the main reason I installed it in the first place. Yahoo told me to upgrade to the next version, which I did. The newer version of the application didn't work any better. I tried completely removing and reinstalling it and that didn't help.
Here's what Yahoo has to say about this:
Thank you for writing to Yahoo! Mobile.
Like computers, mobile devices sometimes lock certain files when in use or place them into a read only state where they cannot be updated or removed, even through an uninstaller. On most blackberry's you even have to reboot the device after an uninstall so it can also remove entries from its system linking back to the program previously deleted. Even if the program is written to remove every last thing, the phone can sometimes prevent that from happening and once the program is "uninstalled" there is no way to remove the files even with a reboot unless a master reset is performed.
Thank you again for contacting Yahoo! Mobile.So now I seem to be stuck with bunch of junk in my phone from a flakey application that can't clean up after itself. If anyone can suggest how to remove this mess, I'd be very grateful.
