Default Deleting service book programs...and keeping them gone

Please Login to Remove!

I want to delete certain items from my Pearl2 and keep them gone. I have deleted them from the service book but they keep coming back if I ever have to restart the phone. How do I delete them and keep them from coming back?

The items I am talking about are
Facebook
Handango
Google Talk
Yahoo Search
And a few others.

Any way to keep these gone?

For the service books that your carrier is pushing to you (such as facebook), there is nothing you can do. Some have reported deleting and the book not geeting pushed again, but that is not the case for many others. Any time you do a hard reset or register or resend your service books, you are probably going to get them back. My advice in those cases is hide the icon.

yeah it's not like they take up a whole lot of space...hiding them is the best option...and if you change your mind or find the need for one later, you already have them on the phone.

Service books are what control the services on your phone. You should NEVER be deleting anthing out of service books. This will cause problems with email functionality, browsing, etc. The correct way to delete a program you do not want is by selecting options, then advanced options, then applications... When the list populates then click menu and delete.

As an absolute statement, that is incorrect. As one example, one valid BIS email trouble-shooting technique involves deleting the email service books and resending. And when it comes to these download icons, deleting the respective service book has worked for some. Didn't work for me as it came back, but nothing wrong with trying.
