    Default Any way to remove BBM?

    Is there any way to remove BBM? On My Storm I was able to uninstall it completely. Can't find a way to do it on the 9930. I never use it, can't see why it needs to be always on in the background. Even if I could stop it from always being on would help.

    Hook your phone up to Desktop Manager and select Applications>Scroll down to BBM and select the box under Action>Select Apply. Hope this helps.

    No. That won't work.

    Typically, you would need to update to a newer version than came with your device OS and then you would have the option to uninstall BBM.

    Or you would need to shrink it out of the OS using software on your computer and then reload the device OS.

    Did you actually try this yourself?
    Many OS's now have BBM set as a "Core App" by default, meaning BBM would be greyed out and not able to be deleted like this.

    It worked for me.

    Yes, I did try this. I also found out that unlike OS5, I was able to delete BBM from my phone by going to Options>Device>Application Management>BBM>Delete.

    I have come to this site multiple times a day, everyday, for the past two years. I read the latest blog posts and search the forums in the hope that I may learn something new, or occasionally help someone. Most of the advice I give I try. I don't post just to pad my post count or post screenshots!

    use the javaloader (loader.exe) to remove it.. or.. remove the cods from the installation folder manually and then let the DM do the rest..

    No need to remove it.. One day, it will come in handy to have BBM, and then you will never ever want to remove it.. lol.. That's what so special about blackberries.

    Defensive much? LoL
    Who accused you of padding your post count?

    Can I assume you tried this with the BBM version included with your current OS? (i.e. You haven't upgraded/downgraded BBM at all.)

    Anyway, if you re-read my original post, you'll see I specifically mentioned that many OS's, and not all, have BBM set as Required. That's why I was asking. And since I don't have the same BBM version included with my OS, I can't test personally test this with my current OS.

    not sure what you mean.. "Create your own"? Do you mean, delete the previous users contacts?
    if at first you don't succeed, don't try sky diving!
