    You have to root your phone to delete the pre-installed applications.

    i'm using droid 3/verison/motorola

    i'm guessing the OS is the droid version 2.3.4

    i tried connecting my phone to my pc and putting it in 'pc mode' but i still can't figure out how to get the damn apps off:mad:

    Removing a stock app can stop future OTA updates (if that matters to you). Best to just rename it in case you need it back.

    It is relatively safe to root.

    It is relatively unsafe to delete bloatware in terms of getting updates from your carrier.

    An alternative is freezing via Titanium Backup.

    why do they make it so hard to take this **** off? :mad:
    don't people complain about this?
    also, what is OTA? what if i somehow need to get these crappy apps back or for whatever reason i corrupt the os, is there anyway to reinstall the os?
