    I am new to this and I need help. I just want to know how to uninstall apps that I don't need from Verizon. For example...VZ apps, Slacker Radio, etc. Can anyone help.

    Welcome to the forums:) The only way to uninstall system apps is if your rooted.

    Welcome. Yup, what he said. We affectionately call those useless apps "Bloatware".

    Welcome to the forums and Droid 3 family! And yep, what they said, you'll need to root and install Titanium Backup Pro to freeze/uninstall them. Or root and download/flash ROMs the come debloated.
