Web Signals How to unsubscribe from push content?

Hello,

From my 8330, I used the bb browser to go to the default "Blackberry Bookmarks" homepage..

Under what's hot, it lists "New Blackberry Web Signals"...

That link displays several web signals or push content providors.

I chose the "MTV: Indecision 2008 Blog".

That link installed an icon on my blackberry device that I cannot remove.

Can anyone tell me how to remove it and/or unsubscribe from that web signal?

Thanks!

-Tony

Re: Web Signals How to unsubscribe from push content?

When you click on options-advanced options-applications. Is it listed there?

Not in app list. It's like push weather.. Only the "Indecision 2008" site that the icon directs you to doesn't have an unsubscribe option.

I'd wipe the device, but since this a "push" app, it'll just show up next time the push provider updates..

This is aggravating. There's GOT to be a way to delete these...

Re: Web Signals How to unsubscribe from push content?

Ok. Did the icon come with your phone or did you sign up on a website and then get the icon? If you have always had the app then yes it will get pushed back to you by your carrier. But if it didn't appear until after you signed up you should be able to delete it. Did you try options-advanced options-applications-menu-modules. Is it listed there if so delete it.

Re: Web Signals How to unsubscribe from push content?

The icon showed up an hour or so of visiting the site I listed above. It did not come with the phone.

And it's not listed in modules. RIM should test these sites before recommending them. Anyways, I need to somehow unsubscribe from that "MTV: Indecision 2008 Blog", or perhaps block it, then somehow delete the icon. Any Ideas?

Re: Web Signals How to unsubscribe from push content?

Here's a followup on this issue:

While the bb web browser was open, menu-bookmarks showed the name of that icon. I deleted that bookmark and the icon went away.

Unfortunately, it showed up again an hour or so later. So apparently I'm subscribed to some web content with no way to unsubscribe.

I have no idea how to stop this icon from returning. I assume it comes back every time the corresponding web content provider updates.

Any ideas?

Re: Web Signals How to unsubscribe from push content?

Are you sure there is no unsubscribe on the page? I would download it and try it but I'm not getting it stuck on my phone! Can you please post a link to the webpage, not the main one you posted earlier but the actually indecision 08 page? Thanks.

Re: Web Signals How to unsubscribe from push content?

Unfortunately for me, that link has been removed from the blackberry page now.

http://mobile.blackberry.com/homepage?book=web_signals_catalog&catalog=web_signals_catalog&accept=ye...

It leaves me in a heck of a predicament. There's got to be a way to block content from a provider that's pushing content and doesn't offer an unsubscribe, right?

 

I'll try to post a link next time it pushes content to my device.

Hit this page from your BlackBerry, it will list all your signals and let you unsubscribe:

Re: Web Signals How to unsubscribe from push content?

I am having quite the opposite problem. I hit accept for accuweather and the next sceen keeps telling me I need to agree to the terms when I already have. Any ideas?
