    After a fresh reboot I notice a number of services/apps running that I don't use. How can I disable these from starting? As far as I know I can't uninstall apps that came with the phone, but does that mean they always have to be running?

    These include:
    Amazon MP3
    Backup Assistant
    City ID
    MediaShare
    Skype Mobile
    Sync Service (part of Backup Assitant)

    to remove them from the phone you need to be rooted...there are startup managers, but i dont think they are recommended...

    If you download the latest version of Amazon MP3 from the market, it should no longer startup/run in the background. After city ID's trial is up, it should no longer start as well. Removing backup assistant after root could brick the phone. The rest can probably be safely removed, after root.
