Today’s lesson in BlackBerry School is a fairly easy topic that I get questions on quite often. Most new BlackBerry users are so excited when they get their BlackBerry that they just download every app that looks good and eventually their App Memory becomes full and their BlackBerry begins to lag. Today’s lesson covers how to properly uninstall those BlackBerry applications that you never use or don’t want. This lesson covers BlackBerry OS 5. A similar lesson for BlackBerry OS 6, which is a slightly different process, will be coming soon. To begin the lesson meet me after the break.
There are many ways to uninstall applications on your BlackBerry. The way I am outlining here is the most complete way to delete apps directly on your BlackBerry. First, you will find the options icon and open the options menu. By default, the options icon is found on the homescreen.
Next, you want to find the word “Applications” in the options menu and click it to open up your BlackBerry Application List.
Next, you will select the type of applications you want choose from, either Third Party, Core, or Add-on. Any applications you downloaded from App World or ShopTheBerryFix.com will be listed under “Third Party” applications.
You will then select the application you want to delete and the properties screen for that app will come up. For demonstrations purposes I have selected Google Maps as the applications I will delete. To delete this application you select “Delete” and the app will be deleted. That’s all there is to it. A short and simple process that can save you precious Bytes of application memory. To delete additional apps just follow the process again for step three for any additional apps.
I hope that you find this BlackBerry School lesson helpful and I encourage you to check out our BlackBerry Help section for more lessons and BlackBerry tips.
