    I am on my tour under applications. System wont allow me to delete VZW navigator, my Verizon and a bunch of other preinstalled apps. Hate how VZW does this. Allow users control over their phones!

    There's always a way. Did you try removing them with Desktop Manager?

    Those aren't actually apps; they're just Web links. They don't take up any memory. Select them, hit the BB button, then select Hide. That's as gone as they're going to get.

    Tried that a ton of preinstalled apps are not listed there. I dont want VZ Navigator, Flickr, myspace or any other commercial app on my phone.

    They can still come back that way if vzw pushes out the service books or if the member sends them again to fix a data issue. I suggest you go with thw bidding option.

    I think he meant "hiding" not "bidding", if not I have no idea what the "bidding option" is.

    Deleting the service books will temporarily fix the problem. As already stated, the service books will eventually be pushed back to the device. The only remedy is to hide the apps, it was the same for the Storm and the 8330 and all other BB's as far as I know.

    My BB 8330 don't have any VZW apps preinstalled.

    Move them to a folder labeled "Crappy Apps I Don't Want" and then hide the folder. That way they are all in one place if you ever want to use them later on.

    Just hide them, you won't even remember that they were ever there.

    My curve from Verizon didn't have any apps installed off the bat either. Have you tried getting someone at Verizon to remove them?
