    Hello Community!
    I just found out something cool...!

    Some carriers have this annoying habbit that they push unusefull and weird apps to your device. Have you ever wished to delete this stuff? If you select the Icon, click Menu, then you don't find a 'Delete' Item in the List.

    But here is a way how to delete these apps:

    1. Browse throught your apps on your homescreen (folders) and see which ones you want to delete
    2. Go to Options
    3. Advanced Options
    4. Service Book
    5. Now search in the list if you find that app you want to delete
    6. Select it (don't click it)
    7. Menu
    8. Delete

    Now the application is deleted! Cool! One drawback: it will come up again when the device is rebooted BUT currently I am working on an app that runs shortly after a reboot that deletes your unwanted pushed apps. How does that sound? Anyone interested?

    Hope I could help some of you guys!

    That little app sounds nice.
    But yeah its better just to make a file with all of the content in it and hide it.
    That way you dont have to keep deleting it everytime to reboot

    Oh yes, that would be awesome. Can't wait, having to delete all over again after reboot is no fun!

    They are not "apps" that are pused to your phone, they are simply browser shortcuts to download the app if you want it. They take up almost no space and hiding them is the best solution. Once they're hidden you won't think about them again. The app to delete these service books will probably be larger than all the service books combined.
