Default Handango Inhand - How to remove

Please Login to Remove!

Hi... Today I find a new icon on my Pearl - Handango Inhand. It's a shortcut pointing to a mobile handango site. I am not able to figure out how it got installed in the first place and I am not able to figure out a way to remove the same.
I checked Options->Applications and it does not show up there? Any clue how to remove this?.
Is it good to enable firewall to prevent this kind of installation?

Thanks.

Look in Messages > View Folder > Browser or WAP Push and see if there is a push message there.

I managed to remove the same. This thread (http://www.blackberryforums.com/gene...apps-list.html) helped me. Essentially I went deleted from the service book as adviced by Perfect Storm. Thanks.

Default Adware/Spyware/Virus/Pushmark?

I just spoke with T-mobile. They said the Handango icon will be standard moving forward on their Blackberries. He said it's not spam from handango or anyone else, but it was put there (today on my phone) by T-mobile who must have updated some file on my phone.

When I asked him if I could disable T-mobile from doing this in the future, he said no.

When I asked how frequently T-mobile would be adding these icons, he said they would never do it again.

When I asked if that was a promise, he said that it was.

yeah right.

I guess somehow this happened to me today because my employer got new e-mail server information that I needed to input on the bis.t-mobile.com . Somehow in that process this icon showed up. Bad first impression handango, very bad impression. They might make good products, but looking like adware the first time I see your name is not good marketing - and making me panic that's I've got some aggressive ad-virus on my beloved BB, even if irrational, is really bad PR.

By the way, under options>advanced options>service book it is listed as "Virtual Preload Handan..." I deleted it. It's gone. Perhaps it will come back, and perhaps I will delete it again. For some reason, knowing it's a service whose icon is just hidden isn't good enough.

Smile Your post helped

Thanks for adding the instructions at the end of your post about how you deleted Handango, I was also disturbed when the icon showed up on Pearl. Like most others, I didn't see it in the application list.

Thanks again.

Yeah, I just saw it and immediately went to BB forums for help. I thought it was spam and the icon didn't really help (it looked like a spiked bomb!).

Thanks for the instructions.

Thumbs up

Thanks! This appeared on my curve today(which I've had forever - go figure). I thought I might have given a 3rd party app too many permissions!!! Phew!
