    Is it possible to remove any of the base apps? I have no use for the corp email and would like to remove it.

    I was wondering the same thing.. or at least a way to remove the icons from the slide up drawer. I can't see myself ever needing Corporate Calendar, so I would love to remove it and some others.

    Whatever works..

    I agree, the corprate callendar sucks, so does the VVM. It never works on my phone.

    No, you can't remove any apps that were installed with the phone. It sucks..

    But you can create a folder (say name it "junk"), put all the useless icons in there and drag the folder to a corner of one of the side screen and forget about them.

    Sorry, not app screen. Home screen. I pulled all the apps I wanted out of the apps screen and almost never go there.

    Great tip! Too bad it doesn't seem to be a way to rename the folders unless I missed it.
