like you see I can't delete the "SMS Services" App - I dind't even had it before the latest update. So here the case: there is an "X" in the Edit-Mode of the App Launcher for deleting, but after pressing it and waiting 5 seconds to delete it, it just remains where it is = it's not deleted.

Does someone have the same issue? Btw: my provider is O2 (Germany).

Edit: Now with it disappeared.

Can't delete it neither. I guess it is not possible to delete this app (same thing on the N9, probably with other phones too). This is operator generated. From update release notes: •SIM Application Toolkit support - enables access to SIM and network-specific add-on services from your operator (e.g. recharging prepaid credit, changing subscription and phone network setting etc depending on the operator)

Also moving it to a folder doesn't really work. It does move it there, but after a while (haven't found out yet what triggers it) it's moved back to the main view.

for me the trigger is restarting the phone

this "bug" still exists for version

you can (re)move the corresponding desktop-entry from /usr/share/applications. Same solution as with the tutorial-app...

p.s: it reappears with next os-update...
