    BACKGROUND: For the past few months I have not been able to figure out how to get rid of my Facebook WebApp on my iPhone. Everytime I delete it it appears again if I turn my phone off/on or sync it to iTunes. I was using 1.4.4 then have since upgraded to 2.0 and I thought my problem may be solved, it wasn't. I then formatted my phone with the new feature included in 2.0. The WebApp crept back once again! My only thought is that it is saved on my "profile" for the iPhone on my computer within iTunes. My fear is that if I format my phone again set up a new "profile" that I will lose alot of important data in Notes and other programs since you can't edit/cut/paste that stuff for entry later.

    QUESTIONS: Does anyone know how to fix this problem? Is there a way to go into the file on my computer and "tell it" not to keep putting the Facebook WebApp on my phone?

    To me it sounds like a permissions problem that is preventing your iPhone from saving that plist. You would be best off doing a clean restore (NOT restoring from backup), if that is an option for you. If you copy your camera roll off first, you would just lose SMS, Call Logs, and Notes (to the best of my knowledge) - provided all of your other data is normally synced.

    You could mail the notes to yourself (definitely not ideal, but at least its not gone)
