Hi there,

Does anyone know how to make a Sony ericsson w508 phone not launch facebook every time it turns on.
Gets annoying as sometimes I forget to close it soon as I turn my phone on and therefore it charges me.

Does it let you delete the jar files or is it built into the firmware?

I have a w995 and installed the facebook addons that you have on your phone, the home screen part was annoying, I used MyPhoneexplorer (its free) to remove them, it shows a list and lets you remove apps, couldnt find away to do it on the phone itself, the facebook addons seem to install into the background

when I had it installed, it treated the facebook app as two different applications, the launcher (whats running on the home screen and wasting data) and the other which was the main facebook application used

Go into the Facebook application and select the option relating to updates in standby or similar.

I don't have Facebook on my W705, but do you have an option for "None" under Settings > Display > Wallpaper?
