    I don't think there's any way to remove those apps without root access. Sorry.

    Nope root access is needed to remove any pr-loaded apps.

    thanks, figured as much just was wondering if there was a way.to bad you couldnt use adb to go in and pull them out? it would give me a reason to further my learning of adb. well ill just wait until the gb update then see about rooting it again.

    thanks for the replys

    Well that's how you root the tb, through adb (or atleast the easiest)
    You should give it a shot!! Only if you feel comfortable and confident.

    rooting through ADB is very easy. Just cut and paste all directions from: [RS Guide] How to Root Your Thunderbolt

    Make sure to download all files first - or you'll be like me waiting for 1/2 hr midway into rooting.
