    How do I uninstall facebook app. When I go to manage apps it only gives me the option to uninstall updates. After I uninstall updates the uninstall option is greyed out.

    If you downloaded the app from the market, which I assume you did, then just go to the "my apps" page in the market and choose the Facebook app. You should then see an option to uninstall it.

    Go to Menu, then settings. From Settings go to applications and wait for it to populate (it may take some time depending on how many apps you have). Then look for Facebook and Facebook for HTC Sense. Click on each and choose "delete"...That should do it.

    So we are talking about the Facebook app from the market. I would try deleting the app and them go through your SD card and see if there is a Facebook folder that could be leaving data behind and not letting the issue fix it self

    Odd. At this point your only option might be to root and remove the Facebook app with Astro or Root Explorer.

    Same problem here. It only gives you the option to uninstall the previous updates and to rivert the app back to its initial factory setting.

    This is very odd I knew u could not remove Facebook for HTC sense but the android app should be removable. I would email HTC andd see what's up.

    I've experienced a similar problem. And to add to my troubles, facebook no longer shows up as update-able in the market, even though I am running the default install. Previously it did, so I am very confused that I no longer have the option to update in the market. Anyone else experiencing this?

    One time I had a problem with my SD card. I did a reset and the issue was resolved. It may help with an app as well. I know it is an inconvenience but worth a try

    The Facebook for HTC Sense app is cooked into the OS of the phone and can't be uninstalled unless you root.

    I have a similar problem... I don't use either Facebook or Google Voice Search, which was "generously included" in the ROM of my SE xperia pro... So I naturally want to delete both (including three extra "supporting" Facebook apps) mainly because Facebook autostart all the time, even if I never use it... And secondary because they nag me to update (whish would steal a lot of free space from ram) two or sometimes three times every XXX day!!!

    But I don't want to be forced to root, just because of this... How can I fix this anyhow???

    It should be some smart app that give access to rom, at least let me uninstall bloatware and then lock down rom again... Like soft or temporary root!

    If the app was bundled with the phone then it's part of the firmware and can not e removed without rooting. Sorry.

    I had the same problems as written throughout the forum so, when I solved mine, I joined this forum just so I could help:

    1. Click "Settings" icon (gear image) on your phone's desktop or find it in your directory.
    2. Select "Applications". It's right above "accounts and sync on mine, blue square with four little white ones in it.
    3. Select "Manage Applications"
    4. Tap "third-party" on top, far left, next to "running"
    5. Find "Facebook" and tap/select
    6. THERE, finally, you'll see the "uninstall" option in the upper right. Click that baby and you're done!
    7. Thank you Sweet Baby Jesus...
    I'll stick with accessing the desktop version. It doesn't slow down my phone nor bomb me with updates at inconvenient times, slowing down my phone.

    I can't find this option that someone else mentioned already "4. Tap "third-party" on top, far left, next to "running""
    Facebook can be your number one distraction that keeps you from being productive and getting daily stuff done. My device is new so I don't feel like rooting....yet.
    Since I can't uninstall it, I now try to use it exclusively on weekends. In the meanttime here's what works for me: Settings/ Account&sync/manage accounts/ (Select Facebook) / remove account. I dont get notifications anymore at least.

    Wait so you mean to tell me you can't remove fb from your device? What crap is that? It's become garbage with ads and trying to charge to send some messages..filled with drama and junk..why would HTC force me to keep it on my phone?
