    I love Android, however with the new Droid X is seems like they just want to load your phone with crap apps... who the hell needs blockbuster?

    But anyways, I was wondering if there is any way to remove it and several other apps that came stock with the phone.

    Also, I see what people were saying about MotoBlur, what a nuisance.

    My question is can you stop it from repeatedly asking which I want to use, when clicking on Messaging? It has Text or Facebook. I guess I am still so used to my Droid1 :(

    Otherwise, this seems like a really solid phone.

    Looks like I have to root.. I did some searching on the web and found the list of apps that are safe to remove.

    you can root to remove stock apps

    if you dont like the blur, u can use a different launcher to hide it

    and for texting, i use handcent. then you dont have to choose everytime

    Not to hijack, but if I were to root, remove the bloatware, then unroot, would my warranty be toast? I don't like the fact that every time I go onto the list of running applications, Skype mobile and other crap is on up and running.
