    Ok so I'm pretty sure everyone is aware that about a month and a half ago VZW pushed 3 apps to everyone's Storm.

    1.) VCast Song ID
    2.) VZW Tones
    3.) Slacker Radio

    So these Apps appear in the main BB menu so I decided and moved them to my Applications folder. Last week at the bottom of the main BB menu I noticed that there was another VZW Tones App there. So now I have what it seems is 2 of the same apps sitting in my Applications folder. It is really strange to me why the same thing was pushed to my phone and why my phone accepted it.

    Anyone have any thoughts on this and maybe even could tell me a way to delete these pushed apps altogether?

    (as stated above)
    go to options > advanced options > service books > highlight VZWTones VPL > bbmenu > delete > highlight VPL VZWTones > bbmenu > delete > battery pull

    I think what crews is asking above is how would one go about erasing these pushed apps for good and also preventing any from being pushed down again. Seems what you are saying is after the delete one still gets pushed.

    They dont harm a damn thing, except for the couple of kilobytes it takes for the icon and a link to the site to download that app, it doesnt use barely any app memory, or its such a small ammount it wont make a difference. Its just the annoyance of them being there that most people dont like haha.
