Can I delete Facebook application?

I've tried within the 'Application Center' (delete does not show up under menu options and I've tried using Desktop Manager (it tells me I need more memory [despite the fact I am trying to delete an application]).

 

Any ideas or is this another Verizon/Facebook business dealing that prevents it?

 

Thanks

I've had the "needs more memory" notice pop on when I do something similar.  I thought this thing had 8GB :smileytongue: 

 

But yeah, I doubt it's the shady dealing you're thinking of.  If anyone does have any solutions to this one, it would be helpful.

Thanks Thunderuser...that seems to have worked for now (and was embarassingly simple...I should have figured that out myself)

Re: Can I delete Facebook application?

Hi all.

Hope I have posted this in the right thread.
Hope someone can answer a simple question from a simple newbie!
I am new to facebook & I have just got a Blackberry Storm.
The facebook app. is up & running with no probs, but when I check my friend list, I am also listed as a friend! Plus I can send myself a message which i get on my PC but it is not sent as a notification on my BB. Is this normal for the facebook app on the BB? Is it possible to "delete" myself from my friend list on my BB? as i cant really see the need to send messages to myself! or should i just ignore it?
Hope this makes sense, & i look forward to your replies (hopefully!)
Many Thanks.

Regards

Rob

Re: Can I delete Facebook application?

Hi ledgleaf,

While you temporarily deleted the facebook application, it will return when you get

service books resent to your device. This is a vendor specific icon, meaning that is

part of the package from Verizon. Make a folder on your homescreen to hold  all

the icons that you do not use, and hide it. That way you reduce clutter and do

not activate an application you don't intend to use.

Thanks,
