    They are pushed icons I believe that you can simply hide. To confirm the apps aren't loaded you can check: Options/Advanced Options/Applications

Then reconnect to your DM where your Corp email resides and it will activate. This is the first time I have heard of this issue with v8. When I re-synced it was the fastest sync I have had.
    I know I'm all late and all to respond but look at him boasting about his hybrid... haha, jk, great job! been using it for since release and haven't rebooted once since the 3 battery pulls...

    Okay I need some help. I've been having some issues with network errors and some typing lag here and there. I've loaded leaked OS and hybrids to my Storm more times than I can count on two hands for sure and never really had trouble. The only thing new as of lately is I have been shrinking with shrink a os and I started using BBSAK instead of JL. I also do the security wipe and delete the old OS from PC before installing a fresh one and then V8.

    I'm wondering if maybe I should reload v8 without shrinking. And instead of restoring my backup file straight-up through DM, doing advanced restore (still through DM) only taking with me my addresses and whatever else I NEED. Maybe some old radio code or something is leftover in my backup file???? I dunno..

    Are people still seeing good memory at start-up without shrinking? I have like 15 apps or so...

    Please help me out with your thoughts on this. I have to go to bed right now cause I get up for work at 4:30am but will check back here as soon as I get off tomorrow.

    Thanks in advance!
    Tommy

    Sounds like you know what you should do. People are having a great boot up with out the shrink and your memory holds steady. Give it a try and report back.

    .151 Radio should work well for us GSM users. There might be a few choice 3rd party apps that act weird but its def better than .90 radio.

    But to change the radio I would install .151 on your PC -- shrink or do what you do -- then install BBC V8 into .151 on your PC ---
    Then right b4 you install to Storm I would take the .90 radio and manually change it with the .151 radio.

    You should be ok then
    PM me if you have more questions !

    I would def give the .151 radio a shot, it works GREAT for me and I am a t-mobile guy ! :laugh2::laugh2:

    Hey Guys... I'm a 1st time Blackberry user and I got my Blackberry Storm today!! Hurray!!! **popped my berry**

    Anyways, I ordered my phone about two weeks ago and have been reading up every single day since then... because of this, I've almost become an expert on the pros and cons of the storm :cool2:... So, what was the 1st thing I did when I got my phone this evening?!... NO!! not brick it!!! lol... I actually went right ahead and installed BBcrackman's V8 Hybrid...

    I must say that because of this I may not have the same amount of joy that the other guys have felt because they are coming from a broken OS but the good thing is that i may now NEVER know about the pains that some guys have gone through :laugh2:

    So BBcrackman... thank you!!! in the humblest way that I know... you have saved me from memories of growing pains... and have instead given me the opportunity to enjoy my storm to the fullest :hail::hail::hail:
