    Re: facebook icon

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~did you download it from facebook.com? Or did u get a new bb and it was pre-loaded?

    All you should have to do is go into options > advanced > applications > highlight facebook and press menu and scroll to delete.

    If that doesn't work, load desktop manager on your compy > connect ur bb via cabe > run DM > click install apps and scroll down to facebook and uncheck the box.

    That should do it!

    Pull your battery out for like 10 seconds and restart the phone. I had the same issue with a game and that worked. I couldnt delete it and it was not on my apps. IT should do the trick.

    You can also check under Options > Advanced > Applications > Modules and see if there's a module for the facebook application, just be very careful about deleting modules.

    It would just appear if your service provider has a service book for it to push out like tmobile did with the oz messenger. Check and see there and delete if needed.

    Re: facebook icon

    ok this facebook icon crap is driving me nuts. basically every time i turn the 8800 off then on it comes back. is it blackberry or rogers that is pushing this thing onto my 8800? are they allowed? is there any way of getting rid of it for good?

    If it is a service book that is pushing to your device then it will keep coming back each time no matter if you delete it as it is coming from your carrier.
    You could try contacting your carrier and requesting that it be removed on their end and see if that helps. Otherwise you will probably just need to hide the icon for now.

    If you go into Options/Advanced Options/Service Book, you should see it at the top of the list. Just delete it and Facebook will disappear. The only way it can get it back is if you re-send your Service Books.
