    I got rid of Facebook by uninstalling it but I haven't been able to get rid of the shortcut on my blackberry? How do I do that? Help!

    You can't, it is pushed by your service books, so it will just keep showing up every time service books are sent (reboots).

    Just hide the icon, or create a folder for all the useless stuff, then stick it in the folder. You can hide that folder as well.

    How do I hide it? I mean, how do stick in a "useless" folder?

    Thanks!

    From Home screen, press Menu key, that brings up icon view, press Menu, select Add Folder, name the folder whatever you want (mine is called "Useless Stuff"), select OK.

    Highlight your Facebook icon, press Menu, Move. Scroll to the folder you made, and press the trackball to drop the Facebook icon into the folder.

    To hide an icon/folder, highlight it, press Menu, select Hide.

    FB isn't attached to my OS, I've deleted it then downloaded it again. We are in a love and hate issue at the moment. When I delete it, it is gone for good, same with myspace.

    Don't ask me how I am able to delete them but I can and they are gone completely off my bb.

    Because you haven't resent your service books yet, they'll be back though.

    If you don't want to keep hiding them there are apps like crackmen that will remove them from your OS

    For me though they're just hidden

    Even when I resent my service books, FB is still gone along with myspace!

    they'll come back next time your carrier pushes em to your phone.

    Just hide them, outa sight outa mind. Its not taking up any space unless you install them, so I dont know why people insist on using crack mem to delete, which is usless as next time the carrier pushes em they will come back. They are JUST icons, hide them.

    I hate it too but like the rachel is saying I just hide them. FB mobile is better than the app anyway.
