    Since ICS has made it easy to disable Bloatware, I'm wondering if there is a complete list of Bloatware that can be disabled without affecting the operation of the Bionic?

    I've turned off NFL Mobile, MOG and Slacker Radio. For me that's bloatware.

    Interesting, I don't have Blockbuster and Let's Golf just has an uninstall option (not uninstall updates).

    Same here. I guess they can be permanently uninstalled unlike the others. :)

    Which of these are active taking up cpu time or staying resident in system ram? Re you just deleting from apps? That sure dont work on the important ones like vcast tones , verizon video and vz navigator. I believe all of these can accidently cost you extra fees?

    How does one disable apps? I thought you'd do it through the manage apps section, but the option only seems to be available on a few apps... AM I missing something?

    Titanium backup allows you to freeze them if you are rooted.

    On some apps, first delete the updates. When the updates are gone Disable should appear.

    Assuming you are rooted, is there a difference on system burden between freezing and disabling bloatware?

    They accomplish the same task but its free to just use the app manager while most bloat freezers are payware.

    On the other hand, if you already own Titanium Backup, it uses the exact same method under ICS as disabling them, and it’s a lot easier to manage (you can unfreeze all apps in batch) so you may want to consider using it still. I definitely do.

    I'm not discouraging using TI Backup at all its a fantastic app I'm was just sayimg its not necessary to buy the app to freeze bloat anymore.
