Hi Everyone, and thank you in advance for your help and ideas.
So here's what's going on: I downloaded the "Fox News Alert" Application a few weeks ago and shortly after, I downloaded the "Fox News Bookmark" App. After a while I decided to uninstall both apps and download the Associated Press App instead. The "Fox News Bookmark" App uninstalled with no trouble whatsoever. However, after completely uninstalling the "Fox News Alerts" App from my BB, I am still receiving the Fox News Alerts on my phone. When I open up my AppWorld or sync to my desktop, my BB doesn't show the program as being installed. Even more interesting is that my AppWorld doesnt even show any record of the program ever being installed or uninstalled.
So, if anyone has any ideas on how to get this fox news alert app to stop sending me news alerts to my phone I would appreciate it. Btw, I've tried opening up the alert and scrolling to the bottom of the page to look for an unsubscribe option, but there isn't one.
Solved! Go to Solution.

The alerts show up on my menu page as the Fox News Allert App Icon. Then, when I click on the App Icon it brings up the fox news alert, just like it would do if the application was still installed. But the application obviously isn't installed anymore so I can't understand why these alerts are showing up directly on my menu page like my other apps.
Any / All help is appreciated

Have you tried the "battery pull reboot"? With the device on, remove the battery. After about 1 minute, replace the battery. The device will then restart (takes 3-5 minutes).
Hopefully, you will no longer see those alerts.

Hi and welcome to the forums!
You removed the applications as er2joe suggested and are still getting the alerts.
Both apps are bookmark apps. Both use the browser and build histories.
Open the browser, menu key, options, cache operations, clear all categories.
This erases cookies, history etc. See if the alerts still show up.
Let us know how it goes!
