So I just ordered a 9650 through Verizon as an upgrade...
Anyone have any opinions on "essential" apps or tweaks?
Check out BlackBerry App World online. Here are some apps that I know are pretty popular.....I included some helpful links at the end.

Welcome Rhino. You have come to the right place. Looking forward to seeing you around the forums.
Hey Neo and T, thanks for the welcome.
So I got the 9650 today, and after putting in the battery and going through the setup wizard, I realized theres NOTHING on the phone... no app world, no bb browser, no bb messenger, nothing... The only browser on it is the hotspot browser...
So I installed the pc interface, checked for application updates, and it added a whole bunch of stuff... I now have bb browser and app world, etc... but theres a TON of other GARBAGE that got installed with it all... alot of Verizon stuff, alot of stupid games, etc...
So heres my question... I know you can hide stuff from the "desktop" screen (sorry I don't know all the lingo yet)... But is there a way to delete them completely? Obviously all this hidden stuff is still taking up space... The only things lister under 3rd party apps is the stuff that I've installed specifically that I want... I can't seem to find the things I want to get rid of...
Hey rhino, all of the other crap is pushed content from your carrier. You can delete it by doing so through your service books but be sure of what your deleting. I really don't recommend this unless your sure of what your doing. The only problem with this is when you resent your service books for whatever reason, this crap comes back. The actual amount of space its taking up is very small as they are really just links to download the actual app.
Hope this helps

You should be able to get rid of the games through the desktop manager. The Verizon stuff gets pushed, so even if you get rid of their stuff, things like slacker, nfl, will end up coming back.
The good news is that if you highlight what you want hidden and press the BB key you can choose hide. It will still be there, you wont see it unless you press the BB key again and choose "show all"
You can also make a junk folder, call it Misc. for example, move everything that you don't want into that folder. that's what I do. Keep in mind that some things won't move, but most will.
By the way, the move command is done the same way as the hide command...highlight and move, that's it.
Let us know if that worked for you, and if you have any other questions.
EDIT: Moments before I submitted this, I was thinking...Josh is gonna beat me to the post...I was right!
