Remove an application

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

Select Menu > Settings and Application manager.

  1. Select Installed apps..

  2. Select and hold the application to remove, and from the pop-up menu, select Uninstall.

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

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

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