    Who here thinks that along with the 3.0 BIS Updates and the BIS Admin tools update being applied and distributed to carriers that our ability to "Opt Out" of Carrier/RIM pushed VPLs for Apps should be included? (This pertains to all those pushed app icons you don't ever want, but seem to get no matter what and then can't delete because the Service Books (VPLs) just get pushed back down on the next network registration of the handheld.)

    I doubt it will happen.... The whole reason they are there in the first place is by agreement with RIM to enable them in the first place. The carriers would have a COW if RIM enabled us to block them. They've gotten out of control. I just picked up a Bold 9700 on T-Mo yesterday and there were probably about 15 of them..... (Menu-Hide, Menu-Hide, Menu-Hide......)

    And therein lies the problem. RIM constantly cowering to carrier requests. Probably the #2 reason why the suck so much... #1 still being truncated email.

    I think more people should speak out about Carrier VPLs... after all, that's about the only thing that carriers and manufacturers listen to. Remember when VZW tried to get rid of the "delivery" confirmation for SMSs a year or so ago?... everybody raised he11 and they decided not to get rid of it. I wish more people realized there really is "power in numbers".

    Who would we contact to let them know? I'm in if you can provide some contact information.

    I really hate the Carrier VPLs more than the truncated emails. The only truncated emails I get are when somebody sends me MP3s. Other attachments are fine. I absolutely despise the Carrier VPLs. AT&T is the worst for that.

    Complain to bbsuggestions@rim.com. Call your carrier and complain/ask to have the VPLs taken off your BIS profile (T-Mobile can do it, why can't AT&T or VZW?) Along with that, there's also planetfeedback as well.

    I'm shocked that anyone has even voted No to this question.
