    How can I delete unwanted icons off my blackberry. It seems I only have the option to hide them, but I would rather just delete them. For example i have sprint and they preloaded the phone with a lot of icons that i can click to then install the program. There some for myspace, flickr, yahoo messenger.. etc. I never plan on using them and just wasnt sure if there was a way to remove them completely, besides just hiding them.

    Any input would be awesome, Thanks!

    The apps that you list are pushed to your device by your carrier. If you delete them, they will simply push them again. All you really can do is hide them. Typically these icons are just small links that allow you to install the app. If you don't install the app, they take very little memory.

    if you want to temporarly get rid of them you can just delete the service book for said app. Once you do a battery pull though the service books will come back (its under options>advanced options> service book) Be careful not to delete an important service book as you could loose a feature that you need
