How to block/remove BBM and Wifi from my Torch

Hi there, I' am newbi user of Torch.

Sorry if someone already asked this question, but I couldn't find it.

It's kinda stupid situation, in mother russia u have to remove BBM and Wifi from ur BB before asking ur provider to turn on BB Services and make e-mails work fine cause its illigal here for some national security reasons. U've got to come to their office and show em ur cell.

 

So I was wondering how can I remove/hide (whateevr Smiley Very Happy ) em from my menu? Thx for the help and pls ask if u need any additional information (I realy hope u dont need to =) )

Remove or delete BBM completely in your device Options > Applications list. Scroll to BBMessenger and press the Menu key > Delete.

 

Hide the BBM icon by scrolling to it, and press the Menu key > Hide. Doing this, it will still appear in the list above.

 

I don't know for certain how to remove WiFi off the device. It is likely possible by removing certain cod files, I'm just now sure which. Must WiFi be removed or just turned off?

WiFi is illegal? Is it a joke? Or your carrier scamming you to use more data!

If it was really illegal then no WiFi routers should be imported into the country lol!

It's Illegal only on Blackberry... I realy don't know the reason. U can freely use it on other phones like Nokia, SE, Iphone etc.
