    Default 2.2 Bloatware - how do we stop this plague?

    It is now officially a plague for 2 reasons.
    1. You can't (easily) remove it
    2. It starts and runs without my permission

    Can someone share tips on removing this cr*p, and restoring the phone to just running the apps we have selected and actually want?

    I agree martr. Give a link or some direction. Not all of us have time to spend 3 hours online searching for an answer. This is not like a battery life question that had 27 threads posted with someone asking the same question everyday. I don't want to root, and want to know if I can eliminate Skype and cityid without rooting.

    The quick answer is no, you can't get rid of crapware without rooting. The best you can do is complain to HTC or Verizon, but I doubt that's going to get you anywhere.
