What if i uninstall a game

Hi, I wanted to know what would happen if I uninstalled then reinstalled the same game. The game just wont start anymore and before deletting it and have to start all over again, i wanted to know if I would lose all my progress and my achievements by uninstalling-reinstalling. If not, is there something i can do before considering the "delete" option. Thank you very much.

Re: What if i uninstall a game

Normally you "might" lose your game details, but it is according to if the game saves it's user data to your device or within itself or to the 'cloud'.


  • Try deleting the app from Options > Device > Application management.
  • Do a simple reboot on the BlackBerry in this manner: With the BlackBerry device POWERED ON, remove the battery for a minute, and then reinsert the battery to reboot.
  • Now, return to AppWorld and reinstall the game again.
