    Pushed apps?

    How do you stop verizon from putting apps on the storm automatically? Yesterday I had slacker radio put on there and about a week or so ago they sent vcast song ID and vzw Tones. Is this what they call pushed content? How do I get rid of these? I dont want to have needless stuff in there wasting memory!

    I have read somewhere that you can call vzw and they can edit the BIS settings so things don't get pushed to the device. I haven't tried it yet, cause had no time....

    They are only links to download the apps. Not the actual apps themselves. Just hide them and move on.

    I did hide them but it is still annoying and we should have the option to delete them altogether!

    like the others said,hiding is the best option...and the icons are only a few kb's so it's really not taking up any space to be worried about.i just put them in a folder then if i decide i want to use song id or slacker i can just download them and use them...then delete them.kinda convenient for me.
