    Default There's Two VZW Apps on the Nexus

    If you watch the videos on the Google Nexus Youtube Channel, they're using tthe Verizon Nexus and in the app tray you see My Verizon and VZW Contact Sync. Not too bad considering My Verizon is useful and the other oone can e disabled.

    I'll post a link when I'm not mobile unless someone else can.

    That is what p3droid said awhile back. I know everyone seems to hate him but he did say there were 2 vzw apps on it.

    I wonder if the NFL app works. Right now, not working on my cm7 Bolt.

    I also seen Verizon backup assistant on one of the vids. I don't mind My Verizon data widget but, really don't want anything else.

    Thankfully this phone is easily rootable and any Verizon apps can be deleted. At least City ID isn't one of the apps.

    I'm sure it will work, I think it's only AOSP roms on the TB that the NFL apps doesn't work.

    Question about rooting. When you root a phone, it just gives you root access (hence the name). This means it doen't change anything, it just let you do things you otherwise couldn't do, like removing the VZW apps?

    I don't want to change ICS but, it would be nice to remove the VZW apps permanently.

    That is correct. Root just gives you full access to the phone and you should be able to remove those particular apps.

    I just say thankfully the bloat is a bare minimum. I can live with My Verizon since I use that quite frequently. The other two I can see being necessary for some users, so not a big deal. I'll just disable them with ICS new "disable app" feature.

    I can't really tell if this is seriously or if its sarcasm because I can't imagine anyone actually paying the ridiculous prices they ask just to see what city a phone number is based out of.

    There's other apps in the Market that have the same function, and for free I believe. The one I use was pulled a while ago but I have the APK saved.

    Why root? Just disable. No root required. YAY for ICS!

    I actually like that feature. When I had the Bionic, I didn't pay for anything and, it did that.

    Disable doesn't remove the app from my phone. That is like throwing an invisibility cloak over a skunk. It still stinks, but you can't see it.

    The backup assistant is most likely there to help people coming from another OS to transfer their contacts.
