    Could anyone provide a comprehensive list of the bloatware that came preinstalled that I don't need? I'm new to at&t and android.

    I removed most, so I can't recall the entire list. The ones that I couldn't remove where myAt&t, featured apps and the At&t navigator.
    Other apps (non-At&t) that I dont use and couldnt remove: kies air, media hub, news & weather, allshare, social hub.

    I received that 25$ giftcard as well. Am I missing some long-term fee that will be incurred on my monthly bill later on? Still hoping someone can provide me with a list of what to get rid of.

    I agree that most of the at&t apps are bloatware but the other apps are pretty amazing and definatly not bloatware! Don't wipe out allshare, the hubs, and kies air till you at least properly and fully try them out. They make for a great experience with the phone. With the media hub, there are no hidden fees. Its no different than any other rental/purchase service out there. You pay for what you use/watch.

    I just found it funny it wouldn't let me delete the AT&T Bookmarks in the Web Browser.

    Loaded up Kies Air and you can delete them from there... lol stupid AT&T

    I was surprised I could not remove facebook...I only noticed it after it automatically updated along with google books. I tried to delete both but could not. At least took them off of auto update.

    How to take app off auto update? I don;t see that option under applications menu?

    EDIT - found it, for anyone else it's selectable in the Market App...uncheck allow automatic updates.

    Sure wish I could just delete some of this crap though...

    I want to remove three bloat too. I plan to root and install cm7 eventually. If I do the stock ROM with root will that make deleting the bloat simple? Is there an app I need to do it?

    Once rooted I believe Titanium Backup can delete any app you want to delete.

    No face book for me. I guess I'm not part of the "everybody's doing it so I should too" crowd.

    Went through support all the way until they got me a Samsung rep. They had me clear both cache and data for Internet app. This removed the AT&T bookmarks. Replaced them with a bunch of others, but they were deletable.
