    So if you do this and it removes everything, can you go back an OS. I thing that I have a bad copy of .46 and want to go back to .17. I had no issues with that one.
    Can I do this and remove .46 from my computer and than install .17 and plug in the application loader.

    Ok I am not sure what I am doing wrong, but I did the wipe of all software. All I lost was the add ons not the OS, but I went and deleted the .46 and installed the .17 on the computer and plugged up the phone on the computer and that happed was that it synced and would not load the .17 OS. How do I down grade the OS on the phone. please help.

    Thanks

    You have to FIRST use add/remove to uninstall the OS you don't
    want. Make sure the one you do is installed on you PC. Delete or move the
    vendor.xml file. Open DM, connect BB and it should start
    the d/grade process. If it does not click Application Loader and that
    should trigger it.

    I thought this was a how do I question damm that kills my fun oh well


    If you want an easier way try this

    You'll need the following

    1 bucket with water
    4 to 6 brickets of charcoal (depending on size of phone)
    1 match
    1 bottle of lighter fluid


    Step 1
    Drop phone gently into bucket of water (its important that phone is on)

    Step 2
    Soak phone for 5 minutes or until it powers itself down

    Step 3
    pile brickets one high and tight together like a bed on a fire proof surface such as a grill
    And cover with lighter fluid

    Step 4
    Shake excess water from phone and place on brickets then coat with lighter fluid

    Step 5
    You guessed it lite the match and let's dry the phone out

    Let phone sit over night of until cool to the touch

    When you can pick phone up the full data wipe has been completed

    I want to delete applications that appeared on my BB after loading another program. I went as directed above, to delete these programs, and they are not listed under my applications, though the icons are shown on the screen. These include: yahoo messenger, realtone jukebox, pocket express, and games and more. Any suggestions? Thanks to all you experts out there.

    I tried the whole water thing.. and all that did was make my phone all wet!!

    and there is nothing worse than a wet BB..

    for me though, the best way to get rid of unwanted programs, is to throw it against a wall..

    GOTTA HAVE INSURANCE!!

    So, i added the new OS 4.5 to my BB only to find out it kept making my phone restart every 34975395793 seconds..

    So i went back to the old OS and i got a 507 error during the upload on my phone..!! All the help forums are saying that after connecting take out the battery and it will say pin unknown..

    Only thing that pops up on the load is COM3 and it is saying USB device unkown on a pop in the bottom right of my screen.

    I'm super frustrated!! CAN ANYONE PLEASE HELP ME!! Kinda "slow" with the BB stuff and would need step by step directions..

    In these lean times I cancelled my BB internet package with ATT. On my phone I am still seeing an icon for Accuweather which shows high and low temp. I do not want to be accruing data charges. How do I stop this accuweather thing?

    Robin, go to your applications settings in your options menu and uninstall the application..thats the best way to ensure yo do not incur any additional charges..but honestly a blackberry without a data plan is pointless

    I'm pretty sure this saved me a bunch of headache today... kinda glad I know about this place just 'cause of that. In my interweb travels, I found what I thought was a cool app but it screwed my system up all kinds of different ways and I had to wipe my bb .... it's all better now, like a giant communicative bandaid

    Using desktop manager, go to advanced within backup/restore. Connect your BB, select "Address Book - All" on the device database window and select "clear". This should remove all your address book contacts on your BB.

    if you want to erase just one application go to settings, aplications, wait for all of your applications to load then highlight the app you wish to delete, hit the menu key, stroll down to delete and the rest is history as they say. Good luck
    Hey, I did that many times but the apps always r back on once I turn my curve on. How do I permanently delete some certain 3rd party apps that I never use?
