Default What's up with new icons?

Please Login to Remove!

I have only had my BB for a couple of months so this is new. Over the weekend some new icons just appeard. Google Talk, Blackberry Help, Yahoo Search, and Yahoo Messenger. I don't think I did anything to download these. Do icons just download on their own?

The new icons are part of the BIS 2.1 upgrade. Did you recently re-register on the BIS?

They are from the carrier. If you don't want them you can hide the icons.
