    What part of this does Verizon not understand. Do they get paid to add crapware? Chris

    From what I've read, yes, they Do in fact get paid to put that crap on our phones.

    I use Root Explorer to find the APKs I don't want, and add a .bak extension to the file, that way it's still there in case I need it, but that disables it and makes it disappear from the app drawer

    Just maybe..That is why a $549.99 device sells for 49.99.
    The crap is a subsidy.Like it or not.

    Is there a guide to which of these things are safe to freeze and which actually serve a purpose?

    If I just unlock my phone can I delete the "crapware" without rooting the phone?

    And when and if we get ICS update, will a unlocked phone hurt the upgrade?

    boddah: You have to be rooted in order to use root explorer correct?

    The only way around rooting would be to unlock and then craft an update that removes all of the bloatware. Which actually isn't that hard but more trouble than it's worth. You will have to relock to take the OTA but that would be it. To answer your question about root explorer, yes you need root privilege to use it.

    The main problem here is that these apps are stored on the system partition which is locked unless have root privileges(rooted).

    For location agent on mine all I did was open the app and it said it wasn't compatible with my phone and let me completely uninstall it.
