Default service books that can be deleted

Please Login to Remove!

what service books can be deleted? There are many service books like tetris, scrabble, pacman, mobivj, mobitv, media mall (bunch)....

Do I need those or can I clean them out? What ones need to be there?

Thanks,
Jace

Best advice:

On your homescreen, create a folder and name it something like "ATT Crap" then move those Service Book's corresponding icons you don't want into that folder. Then select that folder and hide it.

If you delete the Service Books, they only get pushed back to your device and drive you crazy deleting them.

How do I move them? From options/advanced options/service books I only see options to view/delete/undelete/close?

Thanks

I just hide them... from the main (icon) screen, hit the menu button and choose HIDE. It's still there, but the icon does not display on the screen anymore (unless/until you check "SHOW ALL").

Not the actual service books. the icons associated with them.
i.e. scrabble. you dont move the service book (or delete as it will come back). you go to the scrabble icon, click menu-hide.
Or create a new folder (app screen menu-new folder) and go to scrabble and clikc-menu-move to folder. move to the newly created folder (do this for all things you dont want) and on the folder click menu-hide.

I see what you are saying now. Sorry I was confused.

Thanks for the help.

No problem... the above process is what I do to hide them and never deal with them.

I did the same thing, created a hidden folder and put all the useless junk that rogers puts on the phone which you can't get rid of.
