Verizon needs the extra revenue in order to fund TV commercials proclaiming the bloated VZ Droid Incredible as being so wonderful.

What ads are you speaking of??? Ads on Apps?  Ads that popup on websites you visit?

 

Either example, Verizon has no control on apps or websites adding popup ads.

Pre-installed apps will not be able to be removed from the device. You have the option to hide the apps by taking them off your 'home' screen. Tap and hold the app until the haptic blips at you. Then the grey rectangle at the bottom will turn into a trash can, drag the app into the trash and you're removing the shortcut from the home screen.
