Default How to remove or stop Messaging and Email applications

Please Login to Remove!

I don't have a data plan so I don't need these applications. What do I remove so I can recover more memory?

Also I don't like to look at these applications always running when I never use them. Is there a way to stop them from booting?

The Email setup application cannot be removed.
MESSAGES icon is a catch all for messages. This would include SMS and MMS if it is set to combined. i.e. you dont have a seperate icon for SMS.

No, they cannot be stopped from showing up. They are always in the list. As long as you don't leave the browser on an active page, it won't use memory.

Thanks. It is a little disappointing to always see the messages icon when I Alt-ESC. I have disabled text messages and SMS and MMS. I wonder if there is any use for this application without a data plan?


It would be nice to be able to set a default to always go to speaker phone if I don't use ear pod, but I can't find a way.

You need a different device. Not a BlackBerry.

So you only use it for calls, not even SMS.
Why then do you need a blackberry?

Default Benefits w/o a data plan

Tons of benefits!

I can play lectures (ipod equivalent). I can read books. I can check multiple calendars, sunrise, sunset times, look at constellations while I am outside and learn what they are.

Wi-Fi let's me browse the internet without having to carry a computer everywhere. UMA works overseas.

I have study guides which bring up a different lesson each day.

I have stored maps and use them just fine.

You just don't have a data plan, use e-mail, SMS or MMS. Perfect use for a BB.
