Default Updating/Flashing Cooked OS on Tour?

Please Login to Remove!

Hi all,
My company just bagged Windows Mobile so I have a choice of BB or I-Phone. I ordered a Verizon Tour 9630 and just have a few questions?
  • Can we flash a custom "cooked" OS that has the bloatware/bs that the carriers insert removed?
  • This was called flashing a cooked ROM in the WinMo world and was great. Made for a faster unit with more memeory available.
  • If not, are there basic programs or apps that I need to install right away?

Really appreciate the help and soon as I get used to the device and Forum I hope to return the favor to other BB newbies.

You can't cook a BlackBerry.
