Uninstall Blackberry Messenger

How do you uninstall blackberry messenger?  It won't uninstall the usual ways and a bunch of methods I googled don't work either.

Re: Uninstall Blackberry Messenger

How have you attempted to uninstall it?

 

The only way to do so is to go into your Options icon, then Device>Application Management.  Scroll to BlackBerry Messenger, select it, then press the Delete button.

 

Your device will require a reboot, but that should definitely uninstall it.

Re: Uninstall Blackberry Messenger

There is no Delete selection when I try to do it this way. Any other way to do it? The other applications do have a Delete option but BBM doesn't.

Re: Uninstall Blackberry Messenger

BlackBerry Messenger (BBM) is a core app that cannot be deleted.  If you don't use it, while on your phone's homescreen highlight the BBM icon, press the menu key and select Hide.  This will put it out of view however it will remain active on your phone.

 

 

I hope that helps you.  :smileyhappy:

I have V6 OS and I was able to delete it, but I don't remember the steps I took!

Re: Uninstall Blackberry Messenger

I couldn't delete it, either using my phone (OS 7.1) or BlackBerry Desktop Software.


Cheers. :smileyhappy:
