How to Delete BBM From a BlackBerry Tour

BlackBerry Messenger, or BBM, is an instant messaging program that allows BlackBerry users to send messages to other BlackBerry users. If you do not use the program or you no longer want it installed on your Tour, removing BBM will free up a little bit of memory for other applications. The procedure for deleting BBM depends on which software version is installed on your BlackBerry Tour.

    • 3

      Press the "Menu" key and choose "Delete." Select "Delete" again to confirm your selection. Press "Yes" to restart the device and complete the deletion process.

Tips & Warnings

  • You can find your BlackBerry Tour software version on the third line of the "About" screen, which is located under "Options." If you don't want to find the software, try the first method, and if a "Delete" option isn't available, use the second method.
  • If your BlackBerry is connected to a BlackBerry Enterprise Server as part of a corporate account, your administrator can restrict your ability to remove certain applications. If you cannot delete the BBM application, this could be the reason.
