    Okay, now BB Messenger is running in the background all of the time in the 9630 5.0 update. Is there no way to delete it??

    Go to your options--applications--on the top right, select add on---find blackberry messenger--select it--delete

    Or

    Using bbsak you can just remove the cod file. I am pretty sure it will remove it

    this is the bbm cod file

    net_rim_bbapi_blackberrymessenger.cod

    these are the bbm groups cods

    net_rim_bbgroup_calendar.cod
    net_rim_bbgroup_database.cod
    net_rim_bbgroup_inbox.cod
    net_rim_bbgroup_lists.cod
    net_rim_bbgroup_messaging.cod
    net_rim_bbgroup_photos.cod

    ok. with the .591 update, it became a "core" app. but if you go to blackberry.com/messenger from your phone's browser and download the newest version (which did not come with the .591 update) and install it, then it will be moved to "add on" apps. And at that point, it can be deleted.

    Thanks for the information! Went to BB App World, downloaded the newer version (yes, there is a newer version than what we just got with our new Tour OS update) and then I was able to delete it.

    Hopefully Blackberry Desktop Manager won't insist on putting it back...

    Thanks for the heads up, one less battery and resource draining app (and also, I can go back to the old style look and feel of my SMS)!

    Kudos to you bro!

    Isn't BBM 5.0.0.66 the newest one? That's what came w/ my Tour OS upgrade. I had 5.0.0.57 before, which is what is in the APP world.
