Default Couple Problems / Questions

Please Login to Remove!

So I got my tour yesterday after a few years of being away from blackberry. I have a few questions of things I can not seem to figure out.

1. It seems like changes profiles has no effect. If I remember correct whatever profile you are currently using, if you go to edit it, that should only change the sounds etc for that profile. It seems like when I use the Loud profile it changes everything, and they just don't seem to work. The only thing I can think of is this may be connected the Buzzme app I installed. I hate how it vibrates, then rings so I added this. Is this my problem? Any recommendations?

2. I am not really sure how to delete uninstall apps that I don't want. I DL viirgo and decided I did not like it. I went to the advaced/application and deleted it, but then it showed it was archived. Then I went back into my appworld app, and deleted it from the list there, but it did not show the memory as being available again. The available memory did not increase at all. Is this the best way to delete apps? Also do you need to leave them in that list in appworld that shows there are downloaded and installed, or if you delete them from that list do they delete from the phone?

3. How do you know if there are updates available for apps you have downloaded already?

Sorry for the questions, but have used iPhone, and then the pre and forgot a lot, and don't quite get the appworld stuff yet. But now that I am traveling international I had to get rid of my pre.

No, with the 4.7 (or 4.7.1) software they have changed the way profiles work.

If archavied, you need to restore before deleting.
Deleting for app world, deletes from the phone.

it will automatically tell you, by showing a notification on the home screen and a message in your MESSAGES icon.

So how do they work now? I just cant seem to get it?

How do I get it to delete instead of archive. Did I delete it the wrong way to start with?

Thanks

Once program is archived you have to highlight it and hit menu button and restore. Once restored then menu button and delete it will go to uninstalled. Pain in the ace but it works. Profiles are kind of picky on it, try making a custom one and just using that one.
