    I just tried freezing it again to make sure.Like I stayed it prevented me from receiving a picture message through handcent. I sent two from my secondary line. One with just my phone number the other with area code and phone number. Zero pictures received. Feel freer to try for yourselves though. Problem exists with Droid x, bionic and now razr.

    Only picture messages standard texts work just fine.

    I just renamed a few with Root Explorer, finally took the dive and rooted even without the SBF safety net (hopefully it will come out soon). I took off....

    Books
    NFL
    DLNA
    Im Precence
    Kindle
    Moto Active
    My Verizon
    Slacker
    Vcast Tones
    Vcast Video
    Video Surf
    VzNaviagtor
    Yahoo Contacts

    And just doing those seemed to speed the system up some, just really wanted to get the ones that run with out me telling them to. We have plenty of space on this thing no need to go crazy and kill everything. That way when software update hits just have to rename a few things and unroot and be good to go.

    Social location is a huge resource hog. May want to add that to the list.

    Ah yeah I can take that one off as well, I don't use any smart actions except one for when my screen is off and I obviously don't need a location for that.

    Can you not just rename the .apk to .bak to keep the phone from seeing it as an app? I just realized all the apps I renamed are still loading fine.

    I want to remove the flash player settings icon but there is no apk for it. If you click on the icon it takes you to a website so it must be a browser link. I can't find the file to remove the icon could somebody help me? Btw removing adobe flash player doesn't do anything :-(

    Also is device setup safe to remove?

    Don't want to hide it I want to get rid of it for good. Hate all the crap Verizon puts on the phones.
