Default Facebook Icon Remove?

Please Login to Remove!

Hey guys, Chris here..

My BB 8700G via TMobile, came with a Facebook Icon. Seems to be either a launcher or an actual application. I'm not sure, because I don't use any social networking sites like Facebook or MySpace.

Anyways, my question.. Is there a way to remove the Facebook Icon from my BB Desktop? I've scrolled through the list of applications in my BB device (advanced options >> applications) but I don't see Facebook in there.

Thanking in advance

My apologies, I just realized I should of posted this in the Media section of the forums.

This a launcher as you call it. It is pushed down to your BlackBerry by your carrier. The best you can do if you don't use it is to just hide the icon. If you delete it, then the next time your carrier pushes down their service books and policies, the icon will come back, so if you don't want it, just hide it.
