    I need to delete BBM from my 9650. My company blocks BBM so can't use it and for some reason have 2 BBM message indicator on my screen. There is no delete option in applications in options and it's not listed in Application loader on desktop manager. Anyone know how I can delete it?

    If you go to appworld and download BBM again, it will show up in your application list to remove. (sounds odd, i know, but it works)

    another way:
    use java loader.
    for windows users:
    start menu-->run-->type in cmd and enter-->find your javaloader-->
    JavaLoader -usb erase -f xxx.cod xxx.cod
    each cod files should be seperated with a space.
    If you want to end the program first, you can enter the "engineering screen contents" through the "Help me!!!"(alt+caps+h) you can search for some articles, it's easy.
    and after you had enter the engineering screen,there is a "jvm engineering screen", enter it. then, there is a processes option, find the process of bbm and kill it.

    Nice way of doing it, but for less experienced users I'm sure BBSAK would be much easier. That way you can just delete the cods one by one.

    howto://delete BlackBerry Messenger from BlackBerry OS 5.0

    ?I know the title is a mouthful, but the monumental pain in the *** that is Blackberry Messenger makes it worthy of its own post.* To give you the background on this particular issue, I recently upgraded my Blackberry Tour to the latest OS 5.0 (from 4.7).* The upgrade went smoothly over the wireless network and other than taking a bit of time had no drawbacks.* With what I can see from my limited testing, the performance is snappier, the look of the OS is a little slicker and having Skype integrated into the Blackberry is a huge bonus.

    You would think that with all the things RIM got right they were really taking a considered approach to their upgrades.* Then they try to jam something down your throat in a textbook case of "we dont care what you want, youll use this".* The "SONY" approach (as I like to call it) doesnt work with the modern consumerunless youre Applebecause we want the flexibility to use our equipment in any way we see fit, not as dictated to us by a large corporation.* This is where RIM stepped in the **** hard.* Let me explain.

    BlackBerry Messenger

    ?RIMs take on instant messaging is their well known product BlackBerry Messenger.* Some people love it, some people hate it and others couldnt be bothered (I fall into the 3rd camp). Like with any application, if you dont want it, dont use it.* You can simply uninstall the offending app and be on your way. This has been the standard course of action for quite some time.* Then the upgrade to OS 5.0 rolled around.

    Now RIM has FORCED you to use the BlackBerry Messenger.* It automatically runs in the background (even if you "did not accept" the EULA), refuses to shut down at all ANDto add insult to injurycan no longer be deleted from the BlackBerry using the native Applications interface.* So not only is it constantly running, but theres no way to kill it through the new OS.* Bravo RIM, good job!* Thats exactly what every customer wants, an application consuming resources regardless if you use it.

    Thank god for Google because I would have chucked this damn BlackBerry out the window if it hadnt shown me how to remove the disease.* Since what I found were forum posts and other odd bits, Ill compile the steps here for your viewing pleasure.

    How To Rip It Out

    ?First you install BlackBerry App World.* Yes, I know this is counterintuitive to everything you know about removing an application.* The last time I had to install an app to remove an app is when it was spyware.* Hmmm makes you wonder.* If you already have BlackBerry App World installed then youre ahead of the game.

    Next, open BlackBerry App World.* Scroll over to the magnifying glass icon and select it.* This takes you to the search box.* In another burst of genius by RIM, if you were to type in Blackberry Messenger it would NOT bring up that app.* Instead you have to type in Messenger to get it listed.

    Once you see it, scroll down to the app and click it.* This should take you to another screen where you can install the app.* Select YES when the OS asks you if you want to replace the current version.* Go through the normal install process which will involve a reboot of the entire phone.

    When your phone comes back up go to the Applications menu (Options>Applications).* Select the Add-On portion from the drop down and youll now see the Messenger app.* Highlight Messenger, click, and then select DELETE.* Youll go through the normal deletion process (which involves another reboot) and youre done.* Not the most elegant of solutions, but the only one currently available
