Use JL_Cmder in my sig to wipe it completely (you might back it up first just to be safe.) It will then say 507 error. Then reload the OS using Desktop Manager. You'll need to install the OS package to your computer in order to install it on the BB.

Try this as the above menu steps aren't correct:

Options >Applications. You can usually delete from there. If you can't delete the app there then continue by clicking the wheel and selecting "modules" and delete from in there.

just delete what you don't want on it anymore. If you're trying to wipe the handheld and start over then use JL_Cmder and reload the OS from scratch.

Don't remember if this works on the 7290 but go to Address book. Click the wheel and select "sim phone book." Once in the Sim Phone Book click the wheel and select "copy all to address book."

Something is taking up the memory. If you can't figure out what it is then here is my suggestion. Wipe it with JL_Cmder (in my sig.) Install Desktop Manager to your PC. Install the latest 7290 OS to your PC. Delete the vendor.xml from your pc. Plug in BB and run Desktop Manager. Select USB From the connections menu at the top. Then open Application Loader and reload the OS to your BB.
