    My mobile service is Cricket and I have a Samsung Galaxy S3 (SCH-R530C) phone. I would like to remove some of the apps that I do use, such as Google Music, Google Books. To do this, it is my understanding that I need to "root" the phone. Is it possible to find instructions for my specific model phone/mobile carrier? Thanks for any help.

    1. Uninstall any apps that you can
    2. Disable any apps that you can't uninstall
    3. Ignore all the rest
    Unless you know what you're doing, it's just not worth rooting to get rid of a few hundred megabytes of lousy bloatware.
