Heehee.  I had that problem too & was told it was impossible.  I hate BBM it always interferes w/ my regular texting & annoys me!  Sooo...I scoured the internet & found there IS a solution!!  It's a very sneaky backdoor way but it works!!

 

  1. Install BlackBerry App World (if you don’t have it already)
  2. Open BlackBerry App World
  3. Select and click the magnifying glass icon
  4. Type in MESSENGER
  5. Select and click BlackBerry Messenger
  6. Click INSTALL
  7. Select YES  to replacing the current version
  8. Reboot the phone when prompted
  9. Go to the Applications menu (Options—>Applications)
  10. Select Add-On from the drop down list
  11. Select and click BlackBerry Messenger
  12. Click DELETE
  13. Reboot the phone when prompted

 

Thank you SO MUCH!  This worked.  I will say though, on my Bold 9700 with OS 6, I could not find "Applications" under OPTIONS.

 

What I had to do was go to "OPTIONS" then to "DEVICE" , and then I found "Application Management'  and I was able to delete the BBM that I upgraded to.

 

THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU!!
