    Unhappy BB Messenger - Can't delete?

    Hi! I'm kinda new to Blackberry altogether but have explored it alot. I really don't use BB Messenger and want it to go away, but it is installed as a core application and I can't for the life of me get it off my phone. Please help!

    From what I gathered, you can't. However, you could try installing Shrink A OS and removing it and reinstalling your OS. I'm not sure if that would work but you could give it a shot.

    Why do you want to remove it exactly?

    Why?

    I can't stand it, it drives me nuts! Basically, I don't have any friends with blackberries. I just read about how you can use it for people without blackberries but why would I want to? The sms texting works great.

    Thanks for the suggestion

    If you are running OS 5. You should be able to go to your options > applications > then at the top change Third party to add-on and u should be able to delete it there? It maybe listed under Core I am using the new beta bbm and its listed as add-on.

    Yes, mine is under core applications so there is no option for delete.

    You should still be able to remove it by using the desktop manager from your pc.

    Ok, I tried using my pc to remove it with the desktop manager, but when the apps load, bb messenger is greyed out, like you can see it but you can't click on it to do anything.

    Any other suggestions???

    I've never heard of not being able to uninstall bbm. Let me make a quick call and I'll see if I can find a resolution for you.
