    Majority of the applications on my Droid 3 that it came with, I do not use.

    For example: I do not need "IM", "Maps", "NFL Mobile", etc.

    They are all a waste of space.

    Is there a way i can remove them from my phone?

    If thats all you are trying to do, then I wouldn't get into it, but you would have to root your phone in order to remove so called "bloatware."

    Sounds like a lot of work, so I'm over it. Lol.

    It's fine, I'm just gonnah group the apps I do use and just keep it on there so I don't have to look at the ones I don't use :)

    Thanks anyways!

    If you change your mind, I highly recommend that you DO NOT remove any of the built in apps, anyway. If the apps are removed, you will almost certainly have trouble with future operating system updates.

    Just look through the forum for all the "Help! I deleted a bloatware app and now my phone crashes/won't update/other strange behavior" posts.

    If you really want to hide bloatware, freezing with Titanium Backup Pro is the way to go. As previously mentioned, you'll have to root first, though.
