Default Every time I update- Facebook app icon comes back

Please Login to Remove!

I don't want Facebook or Twitter links returning to my home screen after every single tiny update.

If I didn't want it the first time, making it come back again and again isn't going to change my mind and suddenly want to use them.

How can I stop this happening?

You can't. Create a folder called JUNK or RIM or something and then move the apps you don't want into it.

Then, when it updates it won't create new icons.

There is no way to suppress that poor behavior.

Or just hide it.

@Dubdub: you can't hide icons on BB10.

Thanks for the tip, NJBlackBerry. That's good enough. One garbage folder for everything- I can leave this out the 3rd app screen where I won't even see it.

I'm guessing their sponsors pay more money for these persistent icons which keep coming back. Oh well.

You can only hide icons (and folders) in older, obsolete versions of the BlackBerry OS.

Keep Moving.

If you delete those apps the phone will keep saying it has an optional update. I did what these users are telling you, create a "junk" folder and put all of those annoying apps in there (Facebook, twitter, four squares, etc, etc)

So THAT'S what that 10MB update was that didn't change anything else!

Sneaky.

I've deleted some of my Rogers Crapware. The updates offered are small (mine are 4MB), labeled Application Updates and have the same version number I'm all ready running. I've said no thanks a couple of times, and now they leave me alone.
