    search the site for bloatware, you'll find some good instructions.
    Basically:
    You need to root phone.
    You need a way to have r/w permissions for the system/app directory, I use Root Explorer.
    Change certain APK files to be BAK files.
    Reboot.
    Done.

    when searching for bloatware, pay particular attention to which files you can rename, and which ones you should leave alone.
