    So while on a little bit of downtime I decided to see if I could get rid of all the extra crap VZW put on the phone. Like VZ Navigator, song ID, Bing, etc.

    Basically I went to options->advanced options->service book

    Then just deleted the vzw related stuff.

    Checked my main menu and they are all gone. Only thing is I don't know if they will come back on a reset. In the middle of some important convos right now so I can't reset my phone

    They will definitely come back after a reset or if Verizon just decides to push them to you again.

    Deleting Service Books gets rid of unwanted icons. These will come back as soon as the Service Books are resent. This has alrready been said.

    By far the best way to handle these unwanted icons is to create a folder - call it VZWcrap and Move all the unwanted icons to this folder.

    Now hide the folder. The unwanted icons are gone forever.

    Since these things are only links to websites, they take up virtually no Device Memory.

    An elegant and simple solution.

    Starting threads before checking results is always a great idea. Especially when you have a crappy excuse for not checking.

    I don't understand why everyone complains about the pushed items. Just do what i do. Make a new folder called programs and put everything you will never use into that folder. Then either hide it or just leave is shown. It's looks nice and neat.

    I created the folder and moved all those extra icons in there. Its easier and makes finding things much faster. I don't know why we have to get stuck w/ all that junk, but we do.

    Anyone who gets upset over a few bytes worth of LINK-ONLY icons obviously don't have much of a comprehension for marketing.

    I woke up one morning and was browsing through my mobile and noticed an icon that said NFL. I thought to myself, I don't even watch American Throwball. WTF! lol

    They will come back. Just hide the icons and forget it.

    I made a folder and called it VZ CRAP, Its now loaded with Verizons useless icons that they force upon you. It's out of the way and doesn't bother me anymore.

    Not to mention we have 9650s. The memory these little bits take up is nothing to amount of room we have.

    So are you saying I should make a crapware folder, then hide it, and move the pushed icons to that folder? And deleting the service books won't work because VZW will just push them back every time I reboot?

    I don't think I'll understand until there are >9,000 posts in this thread that say the same thing.

    MOAR POSTS, PLOX!
