    its running .254....should I update it right away to the latest?

    Also, it seems there is a dip from the keyboard to the menu buttons...hopefully thats normal

    Still debating if I should wipe all Verizon's junk off there first

    Yes. you should update your OS right away, before loading anything. You can make it a clean install
    Latest Official: 7.0.0.374 (Verizon): http://pcdn1-download.vzw.com/win/A7...A7.0.0.374.exe

    thanks! Will do.

    Is it better to uninstall things you don't want (like brickbreaker) from the device options, or to use BB Boss?

    I use Apploader.exe when loading the OS and I can easily shrink the OS

    If you are using Windows:
    1-Double click and install the OS
    2-If your carrier is not Verizon, delete the vendor.xml file located in (C>Program Files>Common Files>Research In Motion>AppLoader>Vendor.xml
    3-In the same folder there is a Apploader.exe application. Double click and open it and follow the instructions on the screen
    4-At a later point you will get a screen where you can tick/untick what to install on your bb
    5-Enjoy

    Good luck.

    What Verizon junk. Most of the junk is just icon launchers, you won't get those off. You can remove Verizon's PTT, but it's not as easy as going into Application Mgmt and choosing delete.

    Load 374. It doesn't matter if it's before or after activation, it's always a clean install. And since you're on Verizon you can just use Desktop Manager to find the update.

    Makes no difference really. Deleted cods are deleted cods.

    thanks everyone.

    I did mean PTT and City ID, and other things like games and twitter. Just will never use those things, but if removing PTT is complicated, I'll just leave it.

    CityID, Twitter if actually installed, and the games should be removable within Application Management. Verizon PTT can be removed (if you know which cods to select) using BBSAK or something similar. If you don't know which cods to remove, you can edit the VerizonPTT.alx file and make it optional and remove it with desktop manager.
