Arrow Application Removal

Please Login to Remove!

I recently download the Yahoo IM for my 7520 and I have now found one of those all in one chat programs that is pretty sweet. I can't figure out how to delete the Yahoo Icon from the BB. It isn't under the application loader or under service book.

Thanks for the help.

Remove the program? If so, then options > advanced options > applications > scroll to the name of the program and press clickwheel, then choose delete.

Remove the icon from the main screen? If so, then hold alt key when pressing clickwheel, then choose hide application.

This is how it goes on my 8700c, so I assume it is pretty similar for your device...

The process of deleting an application takes effect once your handheld is restarted right after you delete an application. You get a prompt to complete the process that if you don't do it right after, you are stuck with an icon that supposedly doesn't exist anymore (not listed in your Applications list) but is/are in your homescreen.

What you do is just do a hard reset by completely removing your battery for 1-2 minutes. And that should solve your problem
