    Welcome to the forums. We can help you with all of that stuff but let's go one step at a time. To get rid of bloat you're going to have to root the phone. Lemme dig up a link for you.

    Multiple phones - Root them, unroot them

    That will help you get rooted which is required for everything you are looking to do. As a side note, this is not the only option but it is my favorite.

    welcome to the forum!! as you can tell, lots of people willing to help and share info - and there's tons of it to share!! browse around the Droid Discussions section (for all things droid), and then you might want to check out the DX subsection - devoted entirely to the DX, with several subforums.

    browse around, stick around, and join in the fun!!

    I'll check that out but I am a total beginner on a smart phone am I ready to root? And if I mess up is it going to brick my phone? I see a lot of things running and really want to start by only having what is necessary and learn as I go to have a smooth easy too use phone

    Rooting shouldn't do any damage to the phone. Its more what you do after you root that can cause damage, but that doesn't mean its impossible to screw something up. That being said 99% of the time we will be able to rescue you if you do encounter issues.

    However if you don't feel comfortable rooting, by all means don't.

    Oh and as far as extra things running in the background that's not really anything to worry about. The os has processes by which it decides what it needs to have available at a moments notice and that's why things run when you aren't using them.

    imobster game

    Hi All, I am new and own a Motorola Droid...I am looking for some input/help. I have the imobster game i downloaded on my droid. a couple of days ago the imobster site said they were getting ready for "maintenance" and to pardon the inconvience. Since then my imobster hasn't worked. Is any droid owners that play imobster having any issues with theirs and we or what can i do to fix this. love playing my game and would appreciate any assist?

    Sorry for the confusion but this kind of question needs to be posted in its own thread preferably in the apps section.
