    Question Can't Delete Apps/themes!?!?

    Advertisement



    Ok - I'm trying to free up memory and wanted to delete some unused apps (trial s, games, etc.) and themes - but am not being given the option on my menu So I even went so far as doing a wipe tonight and when it finished - THEY WERE STILL THERE! So I'm stumped. They aren't listed in my applications, only show up in modules and as icons on my main page. But I know they are taking up memory I would rather have free. Anyone have any clue as to what is going on - what to do, how to fix this? I would really appreciate the help! Thanks!

    Some you can't. For the rest, go to: Options/setting - Advanced Options - Applications. Hit the menu key, delete the unwanted stuff. Must should delete on reboot. You can delete more than one then reboot.

    Maybe you could be clearer next time.

    Are you on BES or BIS?

    i think you are trying to get rid of the shortcuts/service books that your carrier (ATT) pushes to your bb...

    you can hide them from the icon screen by going to menu/hide

    or you can delete them, go to options/advanced options/service books
    delete the ones that begin with 'media mall'

    Hmm, on top of what cherrichiodo said, the only thing i can think of would be to wipe the device, and do a manual restore excluding those apps, but that depends on your enterprise settings.

    sometimes they have weird names. i've also had issues where the application hasn't been shut down properly and so won't uninstall. best thing to do is select anything in app list that looks odd and read the description.
