@ steve...
There's to much confusion whether or not storm has an (alt) key, but you can read this thread posted by 'strm' users like your self and test it out on your own...

I had 4 uninstalled items until I did this and now I have 16! It actually added all the ones I've ever removed back to the list! I tried again and did a battery pull but it didn't help. Any suggestions? I have the Bold OS 5.0
Posted by RachelBaby on Saturday, November 13, 2010 18:02
I have a BB Storm and by looking at another site I found how to delete uninstalled Apps completely from My World.

→Go to my world, show keyboard, hold down the number lock key (?123) till it locks, then type 3 4 (

removed all my uninstalled apps just like that and made me a very happy camper :)

hola a mi me paso eso anoche, instale el Twitter por error y cuando le di ocultar lo desapareció pero me fui a la carpeta de mi mundo en el App World y estaba en la carpeta de desinstalados, luego le di eliminar y lo único que hizo fue reiniciar y nadaaaa ahí seguía, entonces hoy en la mañana prove instalarlo otra vez y cuando empezó a descargar le di menú > pausa> menú> y cancelar la descarga y automáticamente se desapareció de la carpeta de desinstalados... lo único que debes hacer es volver a darle el botón de seleccionar, descargar, luego el botón de menú, pausa, menú y cancelar la descarga y listo se desaparecen y recuperas tu espacio, creeme a mi tmbn me desesperaba ver el twitter en la carpeta de my world.... suerte

THANK YOU RAFAEL, nothing else work. Allow me to provide more details to this thread.

Click reinstall, wait for "downloading" to appear (not "starting download"), only at this moment you will get in MENU the PAUSE option, MENU then CANCEL DOWNLOAD.

Posted by Aram on Thursday, June 16, 2011 11:31
Thank you RAFAEL. It works perfectly on my BB Bold-3
Posted by Pat on Tuesday, June 21, 2011 16:46
I have a 9330 3G and this did not work for me. However I found if I reinstalled the, then ARCHIVED it, they will disappear from My World completely. Don\'t know if it will work with other models, but give it a try.
Be sure to reinstall the app, then archive. Then use the alt rst. It may take a few seconds for it to reboot, so be patient.

i have a black berry torch 9800 if i check application data there it shows bb maps but there is no bb maps icon on my menue scree plzzz any healp
Posted by matt on Sunday, July 10, 2011 18:18
The reinstall, pause, cancel download worked for me. Bold 9850
Posted by FW on Tuesday, July 12, 2011 14:09
Does NOT work on the BB Curve.

Verizon has no ideas, either. (Big surprise -- when did ever know anything about what they sell?)

Also, Blackberry people remain MIA (or in hiding) with regards to this problem.

Annoying. And very much a privacy and possible legal issue with employers, yes?
Posted by FW on Tuesday, July 12, 2011 14:13
NOTE: Any app you install on a Blackberry Curve is on your phone forever!

Uninstall 'til the cows come home -- then uninstall the cows -- and the list of stuff you've tried and hated will always be there, for your boss, your friends, your family, the feds, the gods themselves to see.

Abandon hope.

(See you at the Apple Store.)

not work.. only exiting my appworld, log in n walla... still there... duhh..
Posted by turbee on Friday, July 22, 2011 08:08
I have a 9300 curve with OS6 and this "alt" RST doesn't work. It restarts "my world" but all the junk still shows as unistalled. I tried a soft boot, hard boot and complete reset but its still there. How do I get rid of the crap?
Posted by angelpie on Wednesday, July 27, 2011 11:31
i got the blackberrry 8520 curve and i did the whole alt rst story and it still shows the uninstalled apps so it dont work
Posted by sticky82 on Wednesday, July 27, 2011 12:26
Jordan/Turbee/Angelpie.....u have to reinstall, pause, cancel download as Rafael said. They do disappear but i dont think they completely remove cos if u do press the RST afterwards they all come back. But either way it looks nice & tidy when theyre not showing on screen ;)
Posted by colleen on Monday, August 01, 2011 07:36
not work for my bb curve.. *sigh..
Posted by jeff on Tuesday, August 02, 2011 11:56
Awesome!!! Thank You!!!!
Posted by elisa on Tuesday, August 02, 2011 15:14
Here you will find how to delete if completely from your phone! It won't take up hidden space or remain in app world, you can even delete those that come with the software that you do not use http://helpblog.blackberry.com/2011/07/how-to-delete-blackberry-apps/
Posted by Bijoy Ullhas on Tuesday, August 09, 2011 12:12
alt+RST..!!! It worked on my 9300 Curve. I had to do it twice, but worked second time. :-)
Posted by eariasp on Saturday, September 03, 2011 01:58
Thanks Rafael, it worked for me on my Storm 2. I'm so happy now!!!
Posted by daphmaramba on Tuesday, September 06, 2011 08:52

Posted by Harold on Wednesday, October 26, 2011 11:46
I hve a Torch 9800 but can't seem to get rid of the uninstall world app. Any suggestion out there.
Posted by papito on Wednesday, December 21, 2011 06:13
i have a bb 9800 torch, i tried the ALT+RST it doesnt work for shit, anyone has any idea hw to remove them casue it does take space. RIM just fucking with us cause its useless keeping something you dnt want
Posted by Dandy on Wednesday, March 14, 2012 16:09
I have a BB 8520 and ALT +RST was not working by itself.
So I removed the mobile's back cover, pressed ALT button with the letters R, S and T in a sequence on the My App World screen and as soon as the app exited itself - i pulled the batter out.
Re-started my mobile and the uninstalled applications list was cleared.
Posted by Carla on Thursday, May 10, 2012 16:23
didn't work for me. tried it many times...
