    +1 on everyone else...I understand removing the browser, say if Dolphin or xScope or whatever is your default, but remove the market?? Really??

    Is this an effort to turn the Droid into an iPhone?

    Sounds like this may suit your needs better than the Droid:

    If you must know, I caught my kid looking at stuff he shouldn't be. So I'm removing all avenues of access. Market being able to download new browsers.

    Not having an iPhone, is the only way to get an app is via iTunes?

    While that's a good reason, is this your kid's phone? If so, how old is he? To me it's like giving your kid a sports car in order to go to school and then asking if there are ways to keep the speed under a certain limit so he won't go fast.

    Ya, it sounds like if you are going to block all of the features on your kids phone, maybe you should save yourself some money and get him a normal phone?

    if the phones rooted it would be easy enough for him to replace them

    +1 on that. Why pay the $30 a month for a smartphone when you are going to cripple it?
