Default App Installation Question

Please Login to Remove!

I've been installing the occasional app on my BB (7290), and I find that about every 5-6th time, when it goes to install something, it will automatically UN-install something else. Something that I wanted to keep.

Any idea why? For example, I just installed the BETA mobipocket ebook reader, and it insisted in uninstalling Euchre and Texas Hold 'Em. Is this a space issue thing?

Could be a memory issue

No - in fact, the things it will uninstall don't even appear in the list of checked / unchecked things, even though they ARE installed. Then when I hit next, it will say "installing X things" (the things I'm installing) and "uninstalling Y things" (the things I DONT want uninstalled).

make sure you keep all the alx files in the same folder. it uninstalls since it does not recognize it.

what NU said... you most likely install via ALX/COD then delete those installation files from your PC. just hide them away in a folder you won't pay attention to after you install them.
