    Question Deleting/Uninstalling unused default BB apps ....

    Advertisement



    I want to delete the following apps:

    BB Maps
    BB Messenger
    BB Sample Video
    BB Browser (I use Opera Mini)
    Password Keeper
    Tasks
    TZones

    Can I do it throug the "Advanced Options> Applications" menu? I think I backed up everything using Desktop Manager Backup/Restore. I just backed up the whole device.

    Is there anything I should keep because it'll mess up something else? In addition to just getting rid of extra stuff on my phone I'm also hoping to increase the available free memory on my phone by deleting this stuff. I'm on Tmobile with a current App Version: 4.2.1.107

    My current 3rd party apps are:
    BB Smart Alarms Pro
    Opera Mini
    GMail
    GMaps
    GTalk
    Timer
    5udoku
    Tetris
    Soft Reset
    Color Pearl


    Any advice/hints? Thanks!!!

    You can delete all EXCEPT Browser and T-Zones using the Application Loader in Desktop Manager.

    The browser is a part of the core system and so far as i know cannot / should not be removed.

    Pretty sure T-Zones is just a launcher, not an app. You can delete it on the device but the next time your service books get pushed or the device registers it will come right back. Better to just hide it .

    How do I use the AppLoader to delete these? When I start my AppLoader it only gives me the third-party apps I've already installed.....

    Ok, sounds like you don't have your device software installed on your desktop. IMO that is the cleanest way to do this, however if you wish you can just delete the apps from the application list. Works MOST of the time . Otherwise DL and install your Device Operating System on your desktop and use that APP loader to clean everything up

    Hmm... thanks Gary for all your advice.

    One last question... how do I download my OS onto my desktop? I'm really sorry... I'm new at this (in case you hadn't noticed yet)....

    No Prob!

    Click on MyBlog (linked below) and look for the device operating system by carrier link. Download and install the OS from your carrier on your desktop. If it is newer than your current one then it will upgrade your phone. There is also a How To Upgrade thread you may want to read....

    Once that is on your desktop you can better manage your apps with the Desktop Manager

    Hm...

    The latest is from Rogers Wireless v. 4.2.1.109 with multilanguage pack. Can I use this even though I'm TMobile? Also... does this mean i'll have to go through and delete all the languages to free up more space?...

    1. You can use the rogers on your TMO device. Once you have it installed on your desktop, delete the vendor file and your device will be recognized. Located here:

    C:\Program Files\Common Files\Research In Motion\AppLoader

    2. The languages can also be added or deleted using app loader

    3. You should not. The process backs up and restores your data. 3rd party apps may need to be reinstalled manually.
