Can't Delete FB app from Blackberry HUB!! New Z10

I have the new Z10 Bberyy.

 

I do not want the FB app in my Blackberry hub, in fact I want it deleted completely from my phone. I manually deleted the app from the main app icon pages. I also went into "Hub Management" and clicked OFF for Facebook in terms of updates. However updates still occur, on my main screen when my phone is locked even! Very annoying.

 

I'm trying to get rid of the FB app completely from my phones, especially from the HUB. I've been searching for an "application manager" type of mode where I was able to do this in older versions of the Bberry.

 

Much appreaciated, thanks!!

Re: Can't Delete FB app from Blackberry HUB!! New Z10

Hi and Welcome to the Community!

There is no more app manager...rather, the main icon pages are just that, so you would have held that icon until they all started to pulsate, then let go and select the trash bin at the top/right of the FB icon, then completed the process to delete the app.

But, you perhaps did not delete the actual account integration...swipe down from the top and select Settings, then Accounts...if FB is in there, delete it there as well.

Good luck!

Re: Can't Delete FB app from Blackberry HUB!! New Z10

I too am having this problem with my Z10. They are not in my accounts but keep reappearing
on my apps screen a while after deleting. The icon is blank. Also the Vodafone sim app will not delete at all which is odd as my phone is sim free.

Re: Can't Delete FB app from Blackberry HUB!! New Z10

Hi!

 

I want to remove Facebook from the HUB but keep it as an app only when I want to use it.  As soon as I install it as an app, it appears on my HUB, even if I go to notifications and turn it off.  Can I do what I want?

 

Thank you.

Hello,

 

Nope...as presently designed and implemented, once an account is integrated via Settings > Accounts, it automatically appears in the HUB left-side "peek" menu. You can control if notifications from anything appear in the HUB Messages List, but you cannot control the existence of an account on the peek menu.

 

Many of us are hoping for advancements around this in the future...e.g., sorting, grouping, suppression from the HUB Peek Menu, but for now such does not exist.

 

Good luck!
