Re: uninstalling application

Not sure if something is left behind.. but you may try an application called MobileCleaner for removing garbage from the device.

Re: uninstalling application

Other way to un-install an application is Download and Install the Nokia PC Suite from here . Connect the phone to PC and open PC Suite. Select 'Install Application' (Icon with 3 squares and a +) . In the Right Hand side window you will see all the applications installed on your Phone. Select the one you want to un-install and click 'Delete' (Bin Icon) at the top ..
