Default Where do 3rd party apps store data on the Blackberry.

Please Login to Remove!

When you delete an app and reinstall it, it remembers settings etc. If you erase all info on the Blackberry and reload the firmware then the information is gone from the 3rd party apps. Where is this info stored on the Blackberry incase I want to delete it manualy?

Thanks

Mark, I am curious too about the fact that if I downloaded and installed PocketDay 1.7, for example, then delete it after evaluating it for 10 days, then decide to buy version 2 because it added features I wanted, all of my previous "settings" for Pocketday, such as zip code for weather, seem to still have been saved somewhere. Where is that info stored? Deleting the app does not seem to uninstall that particular data.

You can delete this using javaloader (forgot the name, but it's some kind of a settings database), but you then lose all your other 'configuration' data for all other applications.

Are you saying that there is something like a "general" config or ini type file that apps can refer to and NOT one that is specific to an application?
