(my first post on the forums... haha be nice
I recently opened the Games App and it connected to my BBM without giving me the option of whether I want this or not (aargh!). Now I cannot 'unconnect' it from BBM through Application Permissions, nor will it allow me to delete the Games app.
Does anyone know how I can remove it from my BBM?
Thanks so much!

To change your options for BBM connected apps, complete the following:

I did not try this, but I can tell you where the permissions are located.
Go to System Settings. Then go to Security and Privacy. Select at the top Application Permissions. Select the software you want to control the permissions. In the games I can see it is possible to turn everything off.
Sometimes a software could take some time to show itself in this menu. If after about a minute, go out of this area and go back in.

Thanks all, for the quick replies!
I will maybe try a reset as I have been to the Application Permissions as mentioned but the "Connect to BBM" slider is "On" and cannot be turned "Off", I'm just trying a reset now in case it is a bug... lets see how it goes.

Restart did not work either… very strange! The ‘Connect to BBM’ On Slider is Grayed out and cannot be changed to off!! Now the whole world (well, not quite… just my BBM Contact List!) sees my Games updates.

I have exactly the same problem it shows on my bbm connected apps and i dont want it there i dont want to grant it permission but have no choice and the option is greyed out on the permissions screen!

There are other apps that do this as well, in those cases I just delete the app but the games cannot be deleted so after accidentally activating it, I am stuck with it connected to my BBM. Not really cool that there is no ability to decide on the allowed options on every single app. Isn't blackberry supposed to be a business phone which needs to be much more secure.

I also just paid 99 cents for a gym timer and I selected turn BBM connection off and it tells me the software is disconnected and I need to connect to BBM before GymTime will work. What kind of whack setting is that for a timer to require?
As an update, the Gymtime app author replied fairly quickly and told me he would remove the BBM requirement in the next update so I am guessing the built in games app can have that modification changed as well.

Teaboy....I would LOVE to change the application permissions but how can I when everything is greyed out and it won't allow me to change the security permissions on my own phone and won't allow me to delete it??? I never wanted it in the first place much less have it attached to my BBM without my permission. major security breach. If you are a developer please tell us how to remove it or at least change the permissions.
