    Is there a way to remove apps that came with the phone....without rooting?
    I am amazed at the number in the apps drawer. I realize some are likely not removable. But is there a list of ones that are?

    If you goto settings then applications you can see all the apps and whichever ones are removable it will let you.

    Yeah - that's cool. I was hoping to not have to go through each one individually, but it's no big deal.

    Preinstalled apps can only be removed after rooting your phone.

    That is what I thought. I'll bet there is almost twice as many pre-installed apps as compared to my Droid. Ah well.

    Do pre-installed apps really bother people that much? I mean they don't really bother me, I just don't use them. They can't really hurt the performance of your phone either because I've not had my phone slow down or anything yet. Ironically enough, the only app I actually have a problem with sometimes is the one for Droid Forums. Lmao. Funny, right? Sometimes I have to close and reopen it to make it work. But other than that...And of course also you can set your home screen up so you can see only the apps you like and use. :)

    Lmao Shark, you're just like me. I am very organized and a perfectionist, probably even somewhat OCD about it. But thing is as long as you put your most liked and used apps on the home screens, you never even need to go into the list of all apps. I rarely ever go into all apps, I did once today and before today it had been a few weeks.

    Ha! - but I am so OCD - I like my screen with very icons as well. LOL!

    Launcher does help keep the screen uncluttered though as an option.

    XD I am actually working on my OCD. It's a lot less minor than it was for me growing up. I'm learning better ways to deal with it and get rid of it. It suuucks so bad. People without OCD don't know how lucky they are. D:

    I'm with you guys. I don't Skype, don't like the included stuff, and I just like it my way. Unfortunately for me I'm so a total wuss and won't be rooting in the near future, if ever... at least till the warranty is done.

    Aw what's wrong with Skype? Skype allows me to talk to my dad and sister who are in different states for free without using up minutes. :3

    Ah I see. Well it sucks you have to pay to use it to call cellphones and landlines, and such. But if you know of anyone you want to keep in contact with and you don't want to use minutes or anything, if you both have Skype you can talk for free as long as you want over it. That's probably it's biggest strength.
