Can I remove SQL 2005 from na Exchange Server 2010 ?

Last Modified: 2012-05-11
I have an Exchange server 2010 that had Blackberry Enterprise installed.
BES was using SQL.
The BES was removed but the removal didn't play well, and much had to removed manually.
The SQL Server 2005 still has a DB in there for Blackberry) . I have it disabled.
I cant delete it with the SQL Server Config Manager.
No other utility is installed to remove it.

Can I Just Uninstall The SQL server?

I am under the impression that exchange 2010 does not need SQL, IS that correct?
I do not see any other SQL databases in the Manager.There is a SQL Server Browser running.
