    At least MyAT&T is useful and updated with a current design. I can't defend them anymore than that

    wouldn't it be "safe" to disable any and all apps if you please? they can always be re-enabled. i thought you just couldn't uninstall verizon apps.

    You forgot AT&T Address Book but VZW still has too much bloatware. I can only defend NFL Network/Mobile since they have exclusive rights to NFL Network content, nonetheless it should still be uninstallable but that is the 'premium' we have to pay for being on VZW. Granted the VZW Moto X in nowhere near as bloatware-laden as the other phones on the network.

    No you cant because many apps are Android core apps and will break the OS.

    for example if you disable play service it will break almost every Gapps

    Yeah if you disable play services on an Android phone it transforms into an expensive paperweight (*don't try this at home kids*).
