    Hello.

    First let me start off with I DID search through this website and I apologize if this is a duplicate, but I can't seem to find my answer. All the answers I find are for rooted phones. I am NOT rooted.

    So.. here I go..

    I would like to remove the pre-installed apps such as Amazon Kindle, Blockbuster (where I love Blockbuster doesn't exist any more :p ), FACEBOOK (ARGHH), Foot Prints, Friend Stream, & Other Verizon pre-installed apps. The only thing that I can do is uninstall the last update.

    I don’t understand rooted phones and I don’t want to mess my phone up because I LOVE THE REZOUND! It is by far the best phone I have ever had!! I just want to get rid of these annoying apps, which I don’t use.

    Any advice?

    Thank you so much in advance!!!

    You have a few avenues available to you.

    1) Unlock and Root your phone. You can then remove any app.

    2) Unlock and install a custom ROM. Custom ROMs seldom have bloatware(and can always be removed with root access)

    3) Install ICS from a leaked RUU(Does not require root). ICS has the native ability to disable apps(bloatware).

    4) Wait for the OTA and see #3


    That's all I can think of

    I don't think there's a way to dig deep enough & delete unwanted apps without rooting :(

    Solution 1: Root
    The only way to remove these third-party apps would be to root your Android device and receive the Super User status.

    Solution 2: Task Killers
    Removing a widget: any of these which are displayed on the homescreen can be easily removed by tapping and holding the shortcut of the widget and drop it into the recycle bin.

    Removing Apps: Any other application that you might want to “remove” requires the installation of a third-party app called Advanced Task Killer, which can be installed from Google Play. These types of apps will ''kill'' the process from running on your phone and auto-kill the app from starting (booting).

    Once you've done this, the app will only be seen in the app drawer, however you reverse the process by going into the settings of your Task killer.

    Just because you've ''killed'' the app, it will still take up storage however it won't use any resources.

    If the app isn't protected, it can easily be uninstalled with an Uninstaller app.
