    Which apps would you like to disable? Uninstalling isn't an option unless you root the device as most bloatware by the OEM/carrier can't be removed without root.

    If you are not rooted then you can disable any app that the system allows you to do so. Critical apps or bloatware will not give you the option to disable.

    If you're feeling spiffy with your phone, the process to root really takes less than 15 minutes. I've been able to delete a lot of apps that were preinstalled.

    I haven't installed any roms and you don't have to either.

    You should just disable them and they are as good as gone from the application manager.

    Actually im afraid to force stop or disable some apps because theres a message like if you disable or force stop an app it may cause errors. So i really dont know which one to stop.
    Heres the list i want to ask if i can disable this or stop :
    Adapt sound
    Active apps manager
    Allshare
    Application installer
    Att locker/navigator/smart wifi/software update
    Badge prvider
    Autimation test
    Band service
    Bsic daydreams
    Bluetooth test/share
    A lot more... Tell me what will happen if i disable them or force stop. Thanks a lot!

    Do you want to replace this app with the factory version? ---- what does it mean?

    Well the answer to what will happen is simple. If you disable an application and its going to cause an ill effect then you will get a force close error. Anything you disable I would do one at a time, play with the device for a while and make sure things are fine then move onward to your next.
