Question How Do I Hide Only Certain BIS Icons?

Please Login to Remove!

Hey all, I used to have a Bold 9700 w/ OS 5 and lost it, so now I have a Bold 9780 with OS 6 and so I'm still trying to get used to some of it. I did a search (here and Google), but couldn't find what I was looking for so maybe one of you could help.

On my 9700, I had 1 BES account and 2 BIS accounts. One of the BIS accounts is just for Facebook, so I can get the app notifications on my phone, but I don't need to ever read the actual e-mail messages that come into it. For that reason I used to "hide" that icon to save myself space. The other BIS account would still have it's icon and all was merry.

Now on the 9780, I'm trying to do the same, but when I hide the Facebook BIS account, it hides my other BIS account icon as well. It's like an all or nothing when it comes to the BIS account icons. I can't figure out how to just show the icon for my non-Facebook BIS account.

Is there any fix for this or option I'm not seeing? Thanks in advance.

Or you can move the unnecessary icons into a separate folder. I call mine "Not_Needed" so that I am always reminded that there is other "stuff" on the BB.

Thanks, but I know how to hide icons. The issue is that hiding one is hiding another that I don't want hidden.

This is seeming to be my only option. I don't get why BB would have changed this. It's really annoying.
