Well, got a second replacement of my Storm today, this after barely a month of use... but that's another story.
I would like to ask if anyone knows how to defeat the "push" advertising that tries to load social networking apps on my phone. Stuff like yahoo messenger, youtube, facebook, etc, etc.
Nobody at the Verizon store seems to know how to do it. One rep told me it's from RIM and "it just comes with the phone"; obviously claiming that it's 'not a Verizon thing'. WhaTevEr!
I can go to options>advanced options>service book and delete stuff there, but it just comes right back again. These are not "installed apps" so there is apparently nothing Desktop Manager can do about it as far as I can tell. I actually tried to install one just so I could delete it- and the #@($)#! ad came right back again!
I want this junk 100% gone- permanently! I own this phone and consider it intrusive advertising for garbage I have no interest in.
Ideas anyone? HEEEELP!
