    Worked like a charm on my TBolt. CityID is removed! One less piece of crapware! If only I could do the same with the Verizon crapware on the phone!

    I was just able to uninstall this bloatware very easily.

    It comes with an automatic free trial which I never wanted in the first place. Messing around with it I found a way to stop it and remove the damn thing.

    1. Open CityID
    2. Click on "Subscription Status" then "Stop Free Trial"
    3. Click Confirm
    4. Click Remove Software
    5. Click Confirm
    6. Less Bloat on your phone

    Now, I did this very quickly and didn't really pay 100% attention so the instructions may be a bit off but thats pretty much what I did.

    Give it a try and report back
    Thanks so much

    Well, it is gone from the app screen but if you go to settings, manage applications, and then all, the fu... app is still there. I guess that at least is not running in the background at all

    I'll take "hidden and not running in the background" any day.

    Found this method over on XDA. It will freeze all of the bloat on the Thunderbolt. As Adrynalyne noted earlier in the thread, it will come back with a data wipe. This IS NOT a permanent solution, rather something to get you by until we get a root method that does not wipe the phone.

    YOU MUST HAVE THE SDK INSTALLED AND BE FAMILIAR WITH ADB! ATTEMPT THIS AT YOUR OWN RISK!!!!!

    Download psneuter and place it in your SDK\tools directory

    Open a Command Prompt or Terminal window and navigate to the SDK\tools directory and enter the following commands:


    adb push psneuter /data/local/tmp
    adb shell
    chmod 755 /data/local/tmp/psneuter
    /data/local/tmp/psneuter
    adb shell
    pm disable com.cequint.ecid
    pm disable com.tunewiki.lyricplayer.android
    pm disable com.htc.vvm
    pm disable com.rhapsody
    pm disable com.amazon.kindle
    pm disable com.gravitymobile.app.hornbill
    pm disable com.vznavigator.ADR6400L
    pm disable com.foxmobile.bitbop
    pm disable com.ea.rockband.launcher
    pm disable com.gravitymobile.vzwinstaller
    pm disable com.gameloft.android.GAND.GloftLGolf2.lgolf2
    pm disable com.slacker.radio
    pm disable com.blockbuster.htc.app
    pm disable com.vcast.mediamanager

    Hate to disappoint but its still there. Menu>settings> applications>manage applications>all. Scroll down and its still there. This is after a reboot too.
