I don't know if I should ask a question under this guide but why in the 1st place someone would want to uninstall Gtalk? I just got a BB and I saw that application was available and before installing I would like ot get some feedback if it's great... and since I saw a guide to clean uninstall it then I thought that maybe there was a reason.

Thanks.

Well gTalk takes up bandwidth. And if you live in a country like Australia where a 'unlimited' plan doesn't exist.. it's costly. Sometimes it's better to just remove the application from the device to avoid any issues. Also, without the guide, I wouldn't really have a clue how to remove it properly.

Cheers,

Default Gmail Icon wont go away

I followed the instructions listed above for a clean uninstall, but for some reason the Application Icon wont go away on the desktop of my 7130E. When I go to Adv Opt, App the google app is still gone (since I deleted it prior)...yet it continues to haunt me on the main screen.

Any ideas? ...or do I need an exorcist?
