    Default Bloat Ware

    I have read several threads that talk about disabling all the bloat ware on this phone.
    But, I haven't been able to find any suggested lists for exactly what that bloat ware is.
    So, does anyone have one of these lists or could we make one?

    I'll edit the OP so that there is a list here, but this is what I have disabled on my phone:

    ATT Address Book
    ATT Code Scanner
    ATT Contacts SyncMLProvider
    ATT Family Map
    ATT HotSpots
    ATT Navagator

    XDA forums has a list. Use Titanium Backup Pro to freeze apps and defrost them when needed.

    Or just use a debloated ROM : )

    Can I just disable them? Or is that not the same thing?
    I'm not rooted.

    ATT usually sticks these apps on the device as SYSTEM apps, which makes them (nigh) impossible to uninstall or disable without root.

    That's okay, what can you disable without root? Post it here... Disabling the carrier boat is a good start.

    If you go to Manage Apps. you can uninstall the ones you downloaded, but you can also get rid of updates and disable the rest of them.
    I just went through and disabled a lot of the ones that said ATT something something.
    The only problem is, that they don't all tell you what the app actually does.

    I'm running the sense 4.1.1 JB release that htc released to the Asian market, through the ViperXL 3.0 rom... It is stock with no tweaks/no att bloat, gets crazy good battery life. Even if you wait to do anything til the JB update from att, it will have bloat on it and I'm sure the exploit for unlocking/rooting will be patched>> then you will have to wait some time for devs to find another way if you want to truley debloat the phone
