    To the best of my knowledge you can't until (if?) we get root access.

    Yep, we just have to live with it. The good thing is most of the icons start with V so most are at the bottom of the app screen.

    Temp root then use Titanium backup or Bloat Freeze

    Have you done this? I have seen people on XDA report issues with Bluetooth and other features not working after temp root. I know root is always a risk, just curious if those are common issues or isolated.

    the app task killer won't remove the bloatware and it is best to not use a task killer on your device.
    It isn't good for the battery and overall functionality of your phone.

    You could also download Launcher Pro from the Market and hide the unwanted bloatwares from the application drawer.

    I have heard of Bluetooth issues as well, I haven't experienced any myself. I was listening to music the other day fine....I don't remember if I had the temp root in or not though.

    Regardless, if you have an issue while temp rooted, just reboot to fix, using Bloat Freez or Titanium keeps the VZW crapware gone. I have done many reboots and none of it is to be seen on my phone anywhere

    Well, that would be the second best thing I think. I hate having them there in the first place and I think some of them run whether you like it or not, but if I can at least hide the icons from clogging up my app drawer that would be half the battle.

    Good to know. Thanks. I had seen that the issues were not resolved after reboot, but I suspect people were removing and not freezing apps or deleting necessary files.
