    What apps can be safely frozen or disabled?

    I think a list of what can and cannot or shouldn't be frozen would help out a lot of people.

    The obvious junk, preinstalled games, vzw navigator, etc.

    But what about htc's crap? Like "peep",, watch, etc.

    I've disabled about a dozen apps so far. Some Verizon apps and some HTC apps. Unfortunately some Verizon apps couldn't be disabled. Go figure right. Anyway phone seems stable and smooth.

    Redwood, how did you disable VZ Nav? There wasn't a disable button.

    Uninstall all updates to VZ nav and the button changes to disable.

    No issues so far
    Also seem to be completely safe so far:

    Any Live Wallpaper you don't use
    Apps (With the gray circle, shopping cart and red V circle)
    VideoSurf
    Amazon Kindle
    Facebook (assuming you don't use it)
    Google Play Books
    Google+
    Mobile IM
    Mobile Instant Messaging
    Polaris Office
    Slacker Radio
    Talk
    Youtube

    Probably more, but these are the ones I know can be disabled with no issues, provided you don't use them.

    Interesting that you can't disable Visual Voice Mail...

    You can disable stocks, talkBack, videosurf, watch and watch widget too...oh, and mobile IM....and FB chat. I use Kindle and Google+ so want those. Yes, you cannot disable visual VM?
