    Hi all,

    Using Settings/Applications/Applications manager I have uninstalled an external application (Funny Jokes) that I tried and I did not like.

    After uninstalling it, the application is not listed anymore but the icon still shows in main menu. If you tap the icon nothing happens, so it seems that the applications is not there .. but why the icon is? How can get rid of it?

    Thaks a lot

    You could try the arrange icons option and click on the red cross when it appears to see if this gets rid of it.

    I had this on my new Sensation and couldn't find an 'arrange icons' option.

    Restarting the phone cleared them out though, just in case anyone else comes across this 'feature'.
