Remove an app from your phone

You can remove installed apps that you no longer want to keep or use, to increase the amount of available memory.

Select > Settings and Installations.

  1. Select Already installed.

  2. Select and hold the app to remove, then select Remove.

If you remove an app, you can only reinstall it if you have the original installation file or a full backup of the removed app. You may not be able to open files created with a removed app.

If an installed app depends on a removed app, the installed app may stop working. For details, see the user documentation of the installed app.

The installation files may use large amounts of memory and prevent you from storing other files. Use Nokia Suite to back up your installation files to a compatible computer, then use the file manager to remove the files from your phone memory.
