Question stop unwanted downloads?

Please Login to Remove!

How do I stop unwanted preloaded applications such as (facebook, myspace, icq, google talk, yahoo search, etc.) from being automatically downloaded to my 8130 automatically? I have removed these applications from this device numerous times by deleting them from the service book & they just keep coming back each time I get online! Help! I don't use those apps. & I don't want them on my phone.

Welcome to the forums.

They are service books pushed to your device by your carrier. You can delete them like you stated, and as you've noticed, they will be pushed back to you.

The best thing for you to do is to hide the icons. Out of sight, out of mind
