    Can someone please tell me what the pink pony I'm doing wrong because I've tried about 4 different ways of uninstalling programs I don't want anymore (third party), but EVERY time I reboot, there they are back again. Every time I've uninstalled it has said it was successful.

    Also, I can change my wallpaper to anything, but that also reverts to that city picture on reboot.

    I'm certainly no newb to technology, but am new to Droid (BB certainly does some things REALLY right).

    {edit}
    Even better for this mystery. I've formatted the SD card, I've factory reset through the interface and through the button press method, and formatted the SD card again. Guess what. STILL does it! I've even deleted apps through the Market, but they are always there after boot.

    you cant delete any of the bloat apps that come on the stock phone, A for effort but the only way to get rid of them is, flash custom software or flash a rooted kernel and freeze them. i recommend the first, gone is usually better all around...

    Which apps have you been uninstalling that end up re-appearing?

    The wallpaper thing is very weird. It's almost as if the phone is auto-restoring to a prior backup saved state upon each reboot. Are there some special reboot options in Touchwiz I don't know about?

    I would try a factory reset and see if that helps anything. You will have to re-install your apps but it should resolve the funky issue you are experiencing.....key word is should.

    I know I can't delete the bloatware, but these are third party apps I installed afterwards. I have about 12 apps or so, all different developers. Things from Angry Birds, to soundboards, and apps specific for my job. All of them reappear after uninstall.

    They didn't do anything except order me a new phone to be mailed to me. Why mail it? I have a bad phone in my hand, you have a bunch of new phones in the back... this can be REAL simple.

    But I told her what I did to try to resolve it and she said "well, you did everything we would've done." I asked if they could flash it, they said the only way the can is with the method on the phone.

    Man, I miss the days when stores had techs who actually knew what they were doing.

    Guess I'll read up on how to flash it all myself since all I can do right now is make calls, and send/rcv texts...but without any contacts info.

    Go to XDA, and read up on using odin to flash the phone. If your a techy person, its quite simple.

    Then you can either flash the stock ee4, or choose a custom rom with root.
