Don't be so naive and defensive.
I'm not attacking you.
You have mobile phone service with Verizon as well as BlackBerry service through Verizon.
As such, you agreed to their terms when you began your service.
Part of that agreement is allowing them to push things to your handheld at their will.
Go ahead and reconsider. I couldn't care less which carrier you use.
Know this... if you want a BlackBerry on a carrier within the United States... you'll have unwanted things pushed to your handheld. All carriers do it.
Save yourself the stress of worrying about it. Hide the shortcuts (that's all they are) and move on.
