Thread: Contacts icon, How to Remove?

    Default Contacts icon, How to Remove?
    For some reason there is a Contacts Icon or app on my springboard. if i tap on it it brings up the contacts but i cant do anything with them(dial etc...) I don't know where it came from and i don't want it, how do i get rid of it? i think it might have been added when i tried out that theme vista perfection, and didn't remove when i uninstalled it. please let me know

    I have always had a contacts icon since 2.0.... comes natively in those firmwares

    I once prayed to God for an iPhone, but quickly found out He didn't work that way...so I stole an iPhone and prayed for His forgiveness.

    You mean remove the whole Contacts application? Then you can't get to your contacts list in Phone. It is all connected and basically the same thing. You could try removing /Applications/MobileAddressBook.app but it might lead to a disaster.

    So if you don't want that icon as a direct link to the Contacts list, you can hide it with Poof (that also comes included with BossPrefs).

    Or you can do it by hand: in /Applications/MobileAddressBook.app/Info.plist under the key <key>SBAppTags</key> you add a string to the array: <string>hidden</string>

    thank you, i didn't know it comes standard on those firmware's!
    but fyi i still found a way to delete it.

    actually i found out how to finally delete it!
    i used poof, and when i was done i just uninstalled poof itself, and both application "contacts icon and poof" were magically gone
