    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 :(

    Tapped from a Galaxy Nexus using Xparent ICS
