Default Removing .cod files - How to?

Please Login to Remove!

Supposedly there are .cod files that can be removed from the Java folder on my PC that contain the OS for your hand held. This will remove the intended functionality for those items you can't remove otherwise (like PTT that AT&T loads on their units.)

Can someone walk me through the process of this? I have a Verizon Curve. Thanks!

I'll do you one better... the definitive fully instructional fail-proof post on doing just that.

Good luck.
