Just rebooted and 11 new apps just showed up!
 
I installed Loopt earlier today but didn't have time to go through it, send to friends, etc (technically I'm working at the moment, lol).
I tried and it kept timing out so I did a soft reboot (alt+shift+del). When the Bold came back on I have 11 new apps!
Not sure if you can see the pic but now I have:
Brain Challenge 2
Get Mobile Banking
Make-UR-Tones
MobiTV
Music Videos
My-Cast Weather
PAC-Man
Scrabble
Tetris
WikiMobile
XM
(the last icon is Twibble, which I downloaded a few days ago)

This happen to anyone else?

rebooting, lets see what comes up!

EDIT: Hey look at that, me too!

Those all sound like service books that were pushed to your device by your carrier.

You can verify this by going into Options > Advanced Options > Applications. If they're not there, then they are not installed on your device.

You can go to Options > Advanced Options > Service Book. You should see them listed there. You can delete them from there. Keep in mind that when you reboot or resend service books, they will be pushed to your device again. Best bet is to hide them. Out of sight, out of mind :smile:

Yup, they are pushing out new service books today.

vecharo 04-17-2009 02:31 PM

Yeah, I used the word installed instead of icons or service books. Not that i'm sad to see Scrabble! Feel bad that my sis just paid 10 bucks for it though (she couldn't tell I felt bad since i was laughing at her, but really..such a shame- LOL)
I wonder why they don't just send a text letting ppl know they are coming...

i got em too

Louppls 04-17-2009 03:45 PM

I don't see them, rebooted and also resent service books. Could it have something to do with the way our HQ has BES set up?

No, it's AT&T pushing them out. You have Rogers according to your profile.

It looks like the posters above are all AT&T users. Service Books are carrier specific (for the most part).

I'm actually ATT. Need to fix profile.

Great, more AT&T bloatware

Yup, pretty sure ita all trial junk, I do like the mycast weather app though.

mista_twista 04-17-2009 07:30 PM

On AT&T in Indy, and I don't have any of the new apps/icons. Any idea why some have them and some don't?

I just called business care's BlackBerry helpdesk to complain, and the guy was clueless to it.

It's pretty ridiculous that I paid upwards of $450 for my Bold, and I pay almost $100/month on top of that, and they have the gall to advertise right on my home screen. I'm going to be sending them a letter to complain.

you can just hide them.....

I know, it's just the principle of the thing! My BlackBerry is not a medium for advertisements.
