    I have deleted most of the bloatware on the device. I do not recommend deleting any .apk that has a Blur_, blur_ prefixes as they are part of the system. These of course can be taken care of with a new rom. IMO these blur apps are pretty useful apps and help make the Droid 3 more usable.

    Apps I have deleted successfully:
    Goto Meeting
    ALL Verizon Apps (I have not tested the hidden services of verizon yet)
    Blockbuster
    NFL Mobile
    Citrix
    Zumo
    DLNA
    City ID (I actually like this app and I am in the process of extending my trial period).

    I removed all the apps you listed. Got force closes on a lot of them and the DLNA service is in a FC loop.............

    Anybody know what the apk name is for Moto Hotspot? That's one that always seems to run and I don't use it.

    These apps not only take up space on your phone but also ram, thus why they are called bloatware. They sit idling, pining, sending, recieving information wether you wanted them to, whether you know it, or whether you liked it. When you delete one of these apps as the phone is active, android constantly looks for it and when it can't find it, it does a force close loop. To fix this issue reboot the phone, when the phone reboots the app cannot be started thus android would stop looking for it. If you feel as though you are deleting an important app first rename it to .bak or something similar and see what happens. If the app continue to misbehave just go back and rename it to the correct extension (many force close button presses later).

    At this time there is an issue with it being so integrated with blur. I am working on a way to get rid of it so we can use barnacle and other apps without any issues.

    BluetoothDun stands for bluetooth dial up networking. Which allows computer to connect to the phone and use it as a modem through bluetooth. It was running on my phone and I don't even ever use bluetooth.

    Just don't freeze Yahoo Contacts and Email. Messes up your contacts if you haven't noticed already. If so, defrost em.

    +1 ^^^ this.

    You guys DO realize that by deleting any apps without any means of restoring them that you are taking a great risk of never getting updates, or worse, one wrong deletion will result in a non-functioning phone. We don't even have a custom recovery for this phone yet! There is already a thread elsewhere with someone screaming for an .sbf file. . . .

    BE CAREFUL!!!! You will accomplish the same end result by renaming the 'bloatware' from *.apk to *.bak, or better, just freeze them with TiBu.

    good luck
