Default Removing items off of main menu?

Please Login to Remove!

I have a 7520 with firmware 4.1.x and want to know how do I remove icons off the main menu? Example; I have Yahoo talk, Google talk, etc that I don't use and will probably never use that I would like to remove off my BB.

Thanks

Im not sure how different 4.1 is from 4.0 but in 4.0 hit the and push the trackwheel. You get the option to remove whichever item is highlighted on the home screen. If you want to get it back once again hit and the trackwheel and click show all. The items that are hidden will have an X through them you can then go to them and un-click the hide item option. This menu will also allow you to move applications around on your home screen or at least put them in a different order.

A better option would be to go into the Options>Advance>Applications and uninstall the Program

The applications that come with the new 4.1 that I mentioned are not listed under the Applications for some reason.

I hide almost the menu options that can have a hotkey open them. Yahoo can be opened by pressing "Y" just like google talk can be opened with"G". To use these hotkeys though you need to disable the dial from homescreen option within the options menu under the phone app.

So for me, removing the application wouldn't work so well.

GoogleTalk and YahooTalk are not part of the Main OS from RIM/Nextel, these need to be installed seperately by DM or OTA.

As stated by others, you should be able to see them under Options>Advanced Options>Applicatons. Scroll thru the list, once you locate them, click trackwheel and select delete.

Also as stated by others, you can just highlight the icon you wish to not see, hold shift down and click trackwheel. From there, a menu will open with options to move or hide the icon. Doing this will not remove the program from the BB. If you want to see in the future, just shift+trackwheel and select ShowAll from the menu options.

Under OS 4.1.0.273 for my 7520 I have the following under Options>Advanced Options>Applications.

Blackberry 4.1 Core Applications - 4.1
Language and Input Support -
French - 4.1
Spanish - 4.1
Blackberry 4.1 System Software - 4.1
Blackberry Attachment Service - 4.1
Blackberry Messenger - 1.0.92
Browser - 4.1
JavaScript Package - 4.1
Help - 4.1
MemoPad - 4.1
Phone - 4.1
Tasks - 4.1

That's it nothing more. The Google Talk and Yahoo Talk were installed when I upgraded the OS to 4.1; I know this because I forced Desktop Manager to completely wipe the phone before updating it, plus the previous version fo the OS didn't have Google Talk or Yahoo Talk. So you see RIM had to of installed them into the OS some how!

Anyhow I have hid them for now, it just just be nice to be able to remove them perminately to save some space for future applications.

Andrew... those applications will not appear under Advanced>Applications.
They actually show up under Advanced>Service Books.

I noticed them when trying to remove them myself.

Hope this helps.

Cheers!

wflores is on the right track.

Nextel did a campaign where they installed Telenav links on users BBs as icons on the home screen, when you opened it, it brought you to a webpage to download the app. These types of home screen icons need be removed from the service book section. When you click on those icons does it bring up an application or does it link to the browser? If it links to the browser, check the service book screen.....

How do you get all your email accounts to show under one email icon? I upgraded from 7280 to 7290...in 7280 all emails came under one nice little icon...now, like user above, I have 3 email icons....I can hide them, but what if I need to see emails that came through those accounts?
