Deleting Facebook icon and Facebook messages.

[ Edited ]


EDIT:  A hard reset (remove the battery while the BB is on) seems to have worked.  I say seemed since it has been reported on this board that it may return when the "service books" are updated...



I'm new to BBs.  I just purchased it today and against my better judgment installed FAcebook (FB).  After getting a deluge of mindless drivel pushed to my new BB I decided FB was not coming near my BB again.


So I found the icon - menu - delete.  I restart the BB as instructed and to my surprise the icon is still there.I tried to move the icon into a folder but I don't know how to move it because the menu button does nothing when I select the icon and press menu.  Smiley Frustrated


And there are some FB messages too.  I deleted the FB messages - when I check my messages it reports I have no messages in FB ... BUT there is a little FB icon at the top of the screen showing one message.  This one message seems to be relic but I have no idea how to reset or delete it.


I also tried the BB desktop software.  It shows that it is uninstalled.  There appears to be no way of deleting icon, moving the icon, or deleting the FB message indicator either.


How do I remove these FB stains from my BB?  


Thanks in advance!

Re: Deleting Facebook icon and Facebook messages.

go to options - application management and delete the facebook app from there, deleteing the FB icon off your home screen, does not remove the app from you phone
