Remove WhatsApp

There is a way to remove WhatsApp from Xperia Arc?

There are no "Uninstall" button available on App Management.

Hi,

By going to Settings > Applications > Manage applications, once you select the app, the top right option should be "Uninstall", if not, you can access the Market™ and remove the app from there.

The Market do not list the application and in the "Manager Application" there is not "Unistall" :smileysad:

Tha application came pre-installed on my Xperia Arc but I cannot remove it!? why?

I can try to reinstall from market then unistalling... I will try.

Re: Remove WhatsApp

Please tell me the software version that you have. If the app is pre-installed, it cannot be removed.

The application is pre-installed. Why I cannot remove it if I do not use it?

Re: Remove WhatsApp

Different software customizations comes with different pre installed applications, and it's unfortunately not possible to uninstall pre installed applications.

Re: Remove WhatsApp

Is there any other way to fully uninstall WhatsApp on my phone? I believe it was one of the pre-installed software on my Xperia Arc, but after the forced WhatsApp update it stopped working.

I've tried uninstalling it (from Manage Applications), and even removed the WhatsApp folder from the card. However, when I reboot my phone, I see the application back (it the Manage Applications). When I tried launching it, I get the failure error "Sorry, WhatsApp was unable to complete initialization. Please check that you are connected to the Internet and try again" (obviously I am connected to the internet). :smileysad:

Re: Remove WhatsApp

Thanks for the suggestion.. I'm not tech savvy enough to root the phone :smileyhappy: so I had no option but to do a factory reset, which fixed the problem.
