    Unfortunately carriers love to load our phones with bloatware. Unless you root your phone, the only option to get rid of most bloatware is to disable it. Go to phone settings-->applications-->application manager. Find the app you want to disable and select disable. Some apps you may have to uninstall updates before it allows you to disable it.
