Default Installed apps not showing after reinstall of Desktop software?

Please Login to Remove!


When setting up my BB for the first time, I set up the desktop software incorrectly and chose the "redirector" option. Since I didn't know what I was doing, I connected my BB and installed a few apps (GMAIL and OPERA MINI). After installing them and realizing my desktop was installed wrong, I uninstalled it and reinstalled it correctly (I think it's the BIS option instead). Now when I choose the application loader it scans my device but doesn't show the apps that I installed (so that I can uninstall them if I wish).

Why is this, and also, how do I uninstall the apps if I want to?

I don't know why DM doesn't show your installed apps, but try closing and reopening DM and rebooting the BlackBerry and trying the App Loader again.

You can always uninstall from the BlackBerry at Options > Advanced > Applications. Select and delete. Reboot.
