Stock with VMID:
It is downloaded but I haven't installed it. Is it going to completely change or re-skin my phone's home screen? Is there a preview image somewhere that shows what it looks like? I kind of like the basic look that my Samsung Galaxy Reverb came with with the clock/weather up top.

Wow, thanks. Do most folks prefer TouchWiz or the VM Essentials? If I try the VM pack and go back to TouchWiz, can I then later reinstall the Essentials pack? (Sorry, total Android newbie here.)
If you can avoid installing it, do avoid it. The install will completely remodel your home screen, replacing some of the apps with links to their pages in the Google Play store. I let it install after I had my phone set up exactly as I wanted it and wished afterward that I hadn't. It took several days to put everything back in order.
The only improvement it made IMO is the default wallpaper, which is depicted in all but the last screenshot in ttuvm's post #2 above.
If I don't want it at all, how do I make it stop asking me to install it?
"If it's for freeeeee, it's for meeeeeeeeeeeee!"
You can go into Apps then manage apps and scroll down to Mobile ID and clear Data. That will turn off the App unless you reboot your phone or turn it off, then on. Another approach (more radical) would be to download another Launcher. Hola Launcher is based on Android 4.04. If you use that Launcher, Mobile ID won't function. A third approach would be to root your phone and delete the App.
I've used method 1 and 2, but I like the stock launcher better (on my Kyocera Rise) so I've stuck with method 1 (clearing the cache) since I don't turn my phone off.
PS I never installed that Fascist App. to begin with, but I was getting prompts to do so.
