I have a new Torch and I'm trying to delete the applications it came installed with - like Fandango and Bloomberg - and I'm following the directions, which say to hit the blackberry menu then delete, simple right? Except 'delete' isn't an option in the blackberry menu! I've tried it with every app just to see if I couldn't delete certain things, but it's never an option. And every instructional guide I can find lists that as the only way to do it from the handheld. Then I tried from the computer, and the apps I don't want, including some games, aren't even appearing in the list on the computer!! What is going on?!

Hello..Some apps seems like it wont let u as there is no delete option...All you can do is hide them...but strange on my phone Fandango gives me a delete option...You can also press down for few seconds on icon and menu comes up too...Bloomberg doesnt have a delete option...

As DS has said, some apps cannot be deleted. They're service books pushed to your device by you carrier.
What I do is create a Junk folder, put all those sort of apps into the Junk folder, then hide the folder.

Yup...it's your BB, but it's under contract with them. I bet if you check your contract, you'll find some really tiny words somewhere that allow them to push these things to you at will. A "junk" folder is very useful on a BB.

How did you set up the e-mail accounts? Via the BIS web client or through the Email Setup Wizard on the device? Are you using these e-mail accounts?
Either way, you can "delete" them by removing the account the same way you added it.

Yes...and further, see this guideline:

this is the new way of deleting an old mail account or apps on the BB Torch, the answer is in the service books:
1. on your BB screen, go to "setup"
2. click on options
3. click on device
4. click on advanced system settings
5. click on service books
remove the "v" on the mail accounts or apps that are no longer valid
return to standard screen
if necessary reboot
all the icons of the mail accounts that are no longer used should be gone....
There you go....
