    You have to be rooted for that one.

    Rooting is a good idea if you know what you're doing and don't mind voiding your warranty

    If you root I strongly suggest that you simply rename the offending apps by changing apk to something like bak. That way you haven't done anything that can't be undone.

    Also, be very careful to assure you know exactly what can and cannot be eliminated.

    Good luck.

    Indeed. Measure twice, cut once.

    Oh and as for rooting, yes it voids your warranty. However it can be undone. You can check the droid 2 hacking class in my signature for a very in depth tutorial from one of our brightest members pc747 or if you want to go the easy route you can download z4root here

    Its a one click root app. If you go that route though make sure you thoroughly educate yourself before doing anything else.

    There's several posts on this forum with step by step directions on how to root your phone. I just wouldn't recommend it unless you absolutely know what you're doing.
