  • If you activate the Device Portal on the phone, can you see the app in the Installed Apps list through your browser and are you then able to click remove there, or also through the Device Portal, upload the app package manually and see if the phone overwrites it and enables you to then remove it.  I had this issue myself previously and was able to fix it by doing this.
