    naspter link just appeared on my phone

    Advertisement



    woke up turned my pearl on and there was a napster icon on my home page replacing one of my icons.
    looked in the applications and there it is, shortcut to napster.
    i don't use napster and never have.
    and I cannot delete it even using desktop manager, still can't

    where did it come from?
    and how do I get rid of it?

    maybe my provider uploaded it to my phone automatically lastnight? (cell one)


    PS: yes I can "hide" it, but thats not what I want to do, I want to chuck it

    What were the last apps you put on your Pearl?

    Someone else said this happened also....not sure what carrier they are with though.

    check under Service Book, you can probably delete the icon from deleting it there (but it will return when ever the SB's are pushed to your BB again).

    HA HA! Yea I would stick it to the MAN as much as I could then!

    I had Celluar One like 4 years ago, didn't care for them much. My antenna broke off my phone. I sent it in to get it replaced. It took over 4 months to get my phone back, and when I got it back it wasn't even my PHONE!!!!! Safe to say I left them.

    And my loaner phone would randomly reset itself. Once I came upon a car accident and had to call 911. Yea you guessed it, it fricken reset itself in the middle of the damn call!! So glad I'm with TMO now.

    By the way it is 2.99 a month for regular handsets. They really don't advertise it with the blackberries for obvious reasons! (jivetalk, etc)

    Re: naspter link just appeared on my phone

    The antenna breaking off is a manufacturer issue, not a service provider issue and is sent via a third party to be repaired or replaced by the OM. CellularOne has no say in the repair process, only facilitates getting the third party to collect the defective device. Since CellularOne doesn't make phones it isn't fair to hold them responsible for device issues. It is fair to expect the utmost level of help in getting things done, but Manufacturers are ultimately responsible. and yah, aim thru CellOne is a joke.
