    cannot uninstall yahoo. i know how to do it, i.e. go to my accounts, open yahoo, click on remove account -- but it shows an error message, "error removing account. an error has occurred. please try again"

    any ideas how to get this out?

    Okay - this is a weird fix, but it works:

    1. Turn on wifi on phone, and connect to a wifi network.
    2. Restart phone.
    3. Open Messaging (email program)
    4. Press Menu button and select "Manage Accounts"
    5. Press and hold "Yahoo" icon until menu pops up
    6. Select "Remove Account", then confirm your choice when prompted

    Not sure why it works, or why the restart is necessary, but it is. I was very frustrated by not being able to remove my Yahoo account, but this strange fix worked like a charm.
