    Difinitive Apps to Freeze List

    I don't know if anyone has compiled a list of safe bloat apps to freeze (yes, I know the ones in the bloat script thread, but that's not all the bloat).

    I am going to start a list of the apps I have frozen (not deleted) using Titanium that have not caused me any problems. I am a pretty dedicated Google user, not needing any other services by other providers. Some of the apps I have frozen are unique to me because I don't need them.

    Add others you have frozen to help us get a complete picture of what we can do without if you are looking for as close to a bloat-free experience as possible.

    To see only frozen apps, open Titanium, touch Backup/Restore button. Touch the menu key, choose filters, and enable "filter by temperature --> Frozen" and then touch "apply" in upper right. It will list only your frozen apps.

    Youre running pretty bare, nice! I myself turn off all bloat except for My Verizon, because its a nice and easy way to check accnt/billing status and minute usage

    Add yahoo contacts
    Youtube
    zoom mode
    To that list

    Global unplug is the reminder to unplug your charger from the outlet to save power.
    Mediashare is software to let you share images/videos from your phone to your enabled TV/PC across the network.. meh
    MS Exchange services is.... Uhh.. Microsoft Exchange services.. If you don't use exchange, you don't need it.
    SIM Contacts is for managing contacts stored on the SIM... if you're not using one, you don't need it.
    VPN Client/Services are for the built in VPN Client.. if you don't know that, then you probably don't know what VPN is, and you probably don't use it, so you can probably freeze it.
    Work contacts, I'm assuming has to do with the D2G's ability to have home and work profiles.. but I use launcherpro, so that's moot, so I froze it.
    Yahoo contacts is... yahoo contacts.. Who uses Yahoo anymore, except old people and europeans?
    toggle widgets is the power widgets that you can add to your home screen for wifi/bluetooth/gps/etc. If you don't use it, you can freeze it.

    I have all my contacts backed up in my gmail/ yahoo account so I wouldnt need the SIM Contacts right... and yes I use yahoo.... -___________- lol
    But I been using my gmail more since my D2 is linked to it.
    Thinking about just changing all my social network emails to my gmail, make things easier and that way I can just freeze all the yahoo apps on my phone. By doing that Id increase space and possibly better battery performance?
    Thanks though, thats helped alot.
    Only thing I might defrost from time to time is mediashare, dlna and office.

    As NiceGuysFinishLast said, SIM Contacts is useful only if you are using SIM cards. It allows you read/write contacts between your phone and SIM card, which is vital if you are moving a SIM card from phone to phone. If you don't do this, then you don't need it, if you do, it is critical, so a good example of one person's bloatware being another's important application!

    Question about freezing apps: When you freeze the apps, are you just making it to where the system can't run them automatically itself and you can still access the apps manually yourself, or does this keep them from coming on period?
