So you’ve discovered the joy of trying out free demo apps on your BlackBerry, and you went a little nuts. You’ve filled up your BlackBerry with demos galore. But now it’s time to clean things up a little. How do you get all that stuff off of there?

There are two main methods for uninstalling software. The first is to connect your BlackBerry to your PC, and uninstall using the RIM Desktop Manager Application Loader. The second is to just remove the application directly from your device.

Uninstall using the RIM Desktop Manager:
1) Connect your handheld to your PC and start up the Desktop Manager.
2) Launch the Application Manager from within Desktop Manager.
3) Click Next on the Welcome page
4) Uncheck the box next to the application you want to uninstall and then click the Next button.
5) Click Finish and the app will be uninstalled.
or

On your BlackBerry, go to Options -> Advanced Options-> Applications. Scroll through the list and highlight the one you want to remove. Click on it, choose Delete.

I installed this "So Called" mobile browser app called "NikMob". Now I tried to delete it, since it is not as they said it was. I looked for the name in my Desktop Manager and in my BB options,advanced options, applications etc.. And there is no app by that name yet there surely is on my BB's desktop that I can not remove.

How do I get rid of this one?

Frustrated: Guy

RE: NikMob

Tried to download "Nexo Mobile Web Browser" and ended up with a NikMob.com link. Now can't remove it.

After posting here I then did some research retracing my steps / history and found the source that had the Nexo Mobile link and hit download and ended up finding the real file name. It was called "Mobile" Vendor: File Stone Media.

So if you do the same as I and run into this, look for a new file called MOBILE on your BB. This is the file to delete.

Below is the link I had problems with.
