    Hopefully I'm just being paranoid, but I went to applications to delete the Aerize Alerts I got last week. And I see in applications an app called
    "aa_delete to reset". Now I know everything inside and out of this
    phone and I never installed anything like this. Here are some screen shots.








    It shows up in DM with no name or description?



    I swear it sounds like something if I delete, will wipe the device.
    Anyone else seen this? It's OS 4.5.0.110

    No doubt. I'm going to delete it but I wanted to know if anyone else has seen it and document it in case it is malicious.

    No, Jeff. I don't think it's related because I got Alerts for my wifes phone at the same time and she doesn't have it.

    But the only other thing I recall downloading for this phone was the OS back when it was in beta.

    Oh well, here goes........



    .....OK, False alarm. Deleted and nothing happened. I have no clue where it came from. And it would not be a hard app to make.

    PT -
    Happened to me with the same app. Go into the module, delete it, and reboot when the prompt pops up. That's it. Had the same things happen when conducting a softreset and didn't actually reset my BB(for whatever reason). The next time you try to reset, you will be asked to delete the aa file and then you will be allowed to reboot. So, you're safe

    Have no idea. I just know that i've deleted the file each time - with no issues. You might want to delete, reboot, and reinstall the app again. It has helped me.

    silly crackberry addicts ... this belongs to the SOFTRESET app, which simulates a battery pull.

    If for example you click on soft reset and dont actually go thru with the soft reset or hit do it later, it places this file into your modules... so you can go delete it and complete your "battery pull" at a later time.



    seee .. the VENDOR of the SOFTRESET app is the same Alan Penner

    You absolutly right, but I've had soft reset on this device for almost a year and that wasn't always there.

    And it must be independent because I've deleted it and soft reset still works.

    you're welcome,

    it only goes if you fail to go through with the reboot the first time around, if you notice .. when you presst the reset now button .. it sez message 1 out of 5 or something like that, or if you hit it reboot later, its placed into your modules, and if you try to go to another program and then come back to do a soft reset it will telll you... ooops sorry you have to go to your modules and delete "aa_delete_to_reset" in order to reboot ... and ALAN PENNER named the module "aa_....." so that it can go on the top of your module list like aardvark in the dictionary ..hehehehehe
