    What software (other than I've installed) on my VDX can I delete w/o fear?

    I read that Datebook and Datebook+ must stay because they are part of the OS. Is there anything that comes w/ the VDX that I can make go away?

    I have Filez installed and can see just about every file.

    If you didn't install:
    1) it is in mask ROM (read only memory) and cannot be deleted or
    2) you caused it to be created (like address book or date book entries or the quick fill address book files)

    Perhaps I don't understand the question properly?

    ok

    for instance: Datebook and Datebook+ came w/ the VDX. They are in ROM and can't be deleted. Is there anything in the ROM that can be deleted? Is there anything that came w/ the VDX that does not reside in ROM and can be deleted?

    It's all in ROM. Datebook, Notepad, ToDo, etc.
    Whatever you see residing on your Visor after a hard reset cannot be deleted because it's all in ROM.

    The only things you can delete off Visors are programs that you install yourself.

    The ROM in a Handspring is not Flashable. You cannot change it's contents.
    If you zoom in on the dot on your GPS, does it say "You are here" ?

    Perhaps the question to ask is WHY you want to delete things? That way we can help you accomplish your goals.

    primary reason: make room

    secondary: tinker

    tertiary: break it so I have to fix it LOL
