    I got my new Droid X (did have a Droid 1) and was surprised to see all the running services. I removed all the factory bloatware widgets from the home screens, but the services still run every time I boot the phone.

    Skype, News and Weather, Social Media, ad a bunch of others are running and I use none of them. I would prefer them to not be running. My old Droid 1 had none of this garbage running.

    Any idea (short of rooting) how I can get all these services to not start?

    Thanks,
    -Joe

    well their presence isn't really hurting you. they're just chilling in the background waiting to be called upon... not using your memory/proc/battery. so I'm not sure why you think this is a problem.

    if you want to get rid of them/prevent them from starting I suggest rooting your device and renaming the apks to bak. be careful with doing that; it may break some functionality. there is an entire thread dedicated to removing bloatware, which contains a list of apks that are believed to be safely renamed

    ^ Only way to remove them is to root. Its fairly easy to debloat the phone once your rooted. I wouldnt worry to much about the services though, they use a very minimal amount of battery/resources if any.
