    Hello. With my phone came the Facebook Beta v0.2.0 for Android application. It doesn't allow me to log in and I'm guessing this is because it's the Beta.

    I downloaded (I presume) the new version from the Android Market and that seems to allow me to log in. How do I delete the Beta version - and by this I mean to get rid of the shortcut on my Meny and wipe it off my phone's system? With the version I want to delete, there is no option to 'Uninstall' only 'Clear Data' - am I stuck with this now?

    I have a Samsung Galaxy i5700 if you need to know.

    Thanks, much appreciated.

    The program is probably in the programmable ROM. Which means that the only way to get rid of it would be to flash a modified version of the ROM that does not have that program.

    So without rooting and flashing a custom ROM you will have to wait for an update from your provider.
