    I dont think so, no. On my phone the bloat apps do not have an uninstall option.

    And yeah, that would be a good reason to root if you are really annoyed by it. And a lot of people are.

    Download Angry Birds, see if its glitchy and force pauses... some Motorola units will do this but it hasn't been ruled out to be software itself.
    Check for basic glitches...use Bluetooth, Wifi..etc make sure everything works.

    How do you set up auto kill apps every 2 mins? I need to do that because I will kill an app and it opens right back up.

    I can get into the manage apps but it doesn't offer me an auto kill list?

    Go to the pre-installed "task manager" app. Open that and you will find a place to select apps for auto-kill.

    Sorry, i meant the Task Manager.

    Razr got a little confusing about that.
    I constantly had Task Manager, Manage Apps and Battery information confused.
    They need to consolidate these three, make them available from the same place.

    By the way, I think it's called "auto end", not "auto kill." Also, when you go through the auto end 'exercise', you'll find the overwhelming majority of your apps will show as "not running", which suggests to me that the system is pretty darn efficient on its own at preserving battery life...

    Here is my advice:

    1. Charge it up
    2. Load ALL of your favorite apps (except Juice Defender-you don't need it)
    3. Turn on Everything full blast
    4. Let her rip

    Have a lot of fun, you just got the best phone on the market !!!!!!!

    Why on earth would you want 2 programs running that eat up your battery monitoring your battery usage? Please be my guest and explain your logic here? Is there some flaw with the battery information the Razr has preinstalled?

    So I am getting mine tomorrow. What do I do to get all my apps transferred from my bionic?
