    Without root you can't remove stock apps, wallpapers, or ringtones.

    You can disable apps. Settings > Apps > All (tab at top) > *app* > disable



    You may have to uninstall updates prior to disabling an app if it has updated. Be careful what you disable, as it could potentially have a use.

    Wallpapers and tones (alarms, notification, ringtones, and UI) that ship with the phone aren't able to be deleted or disabled without root. You can disable the live wallpapers, as they are apps. But the stock wallpapers can't be touched.

    If you root you can go into folder where they're located (ringtones/wallpapers), and delete them. Honestly though they take up very little space/resources so I'd say leave it be.
