    deleting preloaded launchers

    Advertisement



    Is there any way to delete the apps(more like launchers) preloaded on the 9700. I don't care to use Nutsie, save photos, where, primetime 2 go, traffic, and try all sport gps. When I select them, it takes me to a download screen and shows that there is a cost associated. It doesn't let me hit the Blackberry button and select the option to delete it. Is it possible DM will remove these(don't have a computer available @ the moment)?

    I think those are gonna be like the yahoo messenger and google talk on the rest of the berries. If you just hide them you'll forget about them. If you delete them, they'll just be back next time you do a battery pull. They get pushed from your carrier.

    That really doesn't solve the problem. They'll be back next time you pull your battery.

    Just make a folder called junk and pull all of this stuff in there. Then hide it.

    That's actually a pretty good idea. Haven't thought of that one.

    For sure, I think we should have the option to decide what services are pushed to our devices. Yet that's not the way marketing works. Those companies have an agreement with the carrier to push that service to your device, whether or not we decide to use them is up to us but its a way to market that app or service. I think most everyone on here has a folder named something where all that "junk" is stored. Lol

    There's an add-on in your applications called Blackberry Application Center (not to be confused with app world). It the reason why those services are being pushed to your device. I deleted mine this morning after I found another useless thing pushed to my device. Delete that and you shouldn't have any more problems.

    The app center was preinstalled on my 9700. It's located in options/applications/add-ons. If you click on it, it will explain what the service is and you have the option to delete.

    is that all this application center is meant to do? you can still push your basic service books without a problem right?
