    Yes. I'm a loser because I don't sit around and post 10k+ posts on a cell phone forum. Makes perfect sense actually. You nailed it, thanks.

    It may be hard to understand right now kid, but when you grow up, yes you'll realize you are indeed a loser.

    If it came on the phone when you bought it, would it still be a big deal?

    When joey goes to buy his storm in a month, and it's on there, will he be upset?
    The problem for me isn't that it is there, or that verizon feels the need to put stuff on the my phone. Its the fact that I can't get rid of it, just like AIM, Yahoo, etc. that came installed when i got it. If you want to load the phone with links to software, at least give me the ability to easily remove them, not just hide the icon.

    Also, once I buy the phone, its my phone! No one should be able to put stuff on it except me.

    Its great, I use it all the time. I just don't like how they're going about advertising all this crap. I didn't agree to product placement on my phone.

    LOL, so I take you agreed to having the Verizon logo on your phone? You're paying to get access to Verizon's network. You are not paying to become CEO and manage how Verizon runs its network. For that you would have to become a sizeable share holder and vote in share holder elections.

    Oh, I'm not arguing your point at all. You and many other have valid reasons as to why this shouldn't happen. However, I just see it as no big deal. I pay for Cable TV but I still get crappy commercials, taunting me to enhance my sex life and enhance size :-D (Although, didn't think bigger was possible.. hardy har har)

    If you sell your house you wont have a computer to reach the posts on... and odds are you wont have your phone any more cause you wont be able to pay for it. So....good luck with that. Let me know how it ends up.

    It will get pushed back down again... unless VZW has made changes to take that VPL offline. The next time the HRT gets refreshed on a reboot, the service book will return.

    call me crazy but 1992 was 17 years ago, not 26.

    but back to the point of all this...
    I doubt they "installed" it, If anything it's just like AIM YAHOO, ETC that CAME on the phone. DAMN YOU VERIZON DAMN YOU!

    It's probably a launcher to install it, just hide it as if you were to do it with many of the other pre-installed launchers.

    If it came on the phone when you bought it, would it still be a big deal?

    When joey goes to buy his storm in a month, and it's on there, will he be upset?
    it's as much a big deal as the other pre-installed launchers that we can't delete, it's yet another that i have to hide on my phone instead of completely removing. it's fine to give us links to downloads for these applications, but if we don't want or care for them then we should be able to delete them altogether instead of just hiding them at best.

    I just did a quickpull also just to check and see if this would happen. Sure enough it did.
    This is like getting junk mail in your mailbox at home. But oh well what can you do.
    Verizon isn't going to stop. But true if it was already on the phone at the store would you
    Not have purchased it? I doubt it would have stopped me

    Well I don't know how to explain it any further than that.

    My phone was running fine a bit before 9pm on Wed. I checked before I started to listen to my music player and it was running steady at 28.3MB. I was listening to my MP at the gym for about 45 mins. and all of a sudden it rebooted on its own. I didn't even setup quickpull yet.

    After the reboot I saw the icon for Slacker like everyone mentioned here.

    So I have no other explanation other than the WAP push causing it to reboot automatically for the icon/"service book" to get "installed" (if that's even the proper word) onto my phone.

    Basically, I aint happy about it at all...

    i understand the point of not wanting stuff pushed to your phones , I agree with this. But how hard is it really to hide the icon and move it to a folder or something and never see it again?

    This will never change, verizon was so generous at letting you borrow their phone for 2 years for that cheap price of 199
