BlackBerry Desktop Manager
The first obvious step to removing applications from your BlackBerry is to make sure you have the BlackBerry Desktop Manager installed on your computer. This program has many features and also allows you to completely customize your BlackBerry, so if you do not necessarily need it to remove or add any applications it is still great to have. The software can be downloaded directly from the BlackBerry website.
If you are running a computer under Windows XP or Vista then the USB drivers for your BlackBerry should already be installed. If you are running a computer under a different operating system then you will have to download the USB drivers for the device; also available at the link provided.
Once the software and the USB drivers are installed correctly it is time to plug the phone into the computer with the mini-USB data cable. The computer should automatically recognize the device, and a small pop-up should appear in your taskbar indicating this is so. As soon as the computer is finished recognizing the device it is ok to open up the BlackBerry Desktop manager.
Upon load-up of the program you will find yourself on the main menu of the manager. The functions are as follows.
Media Manager: Allows the managing of ringtones, videos and pictures on your device including the transfer and removal to and from.
Application Loader: This is what we will be using to uninstall programs from your BlackBerry. This program obviously handles the installation and uninstallation of BlackBerry applications.
Backup and Restore: This feature allows you to back up all your current data including contacts, calendar info, tasks, and memos.
Device Switch Wizard: This feature helps transfer data from another device to a BlackBerry, or from BlackBerry to BlackBerry in the event you get a new phone.
Synchronize: This feature allows you to transfer email messages and organizer data.
Synchronize Certificates: This feature allows you to transfer certificates and keys for any applications or programs you have purchased on your BlackBerry.
