    Here is what I disabled right after getting the phone:

    Wild Tangent Games
    AT&T Navigator
    Twitter
    YPmobile
    Facebook
    myAT&T
    A&T Ready2Go
    AT&T Locker
    Browser Bar
    AT&T DriveMode
    Mobile TV
    City ID
    AT&T Hot Spots
    AT*T Messages
    Amazon Kindle
    AT&T Family Map
    AT&T Smart Wifi
    Device Help
    Face Unlock
    Gmail
    Google Play Books
    Google Play Magazines
    Google +
    Life Square
    Life Square Log Manager
    Picasa Uploader
    Carrier IQ is disabled, until next reboot, when it is automatically enabled again, then I go back and disable it every time (if I remember).
    Google Currents
    Google Hangouts


    Any other suggestions?
    If anyone knows how to disable "Get Google Now!" nag screen, that would be extremely appreciated. I hate that it randomly keeps popping up and that there is no "Do not bother me again" option.

    You may also disable Google search, Keep, Hangouts, Currents and such. I disabled Exchange Service and Email because I use the Yahoo Mail app. It comes down to what you use on your device.

    An app such as All In One Toolbox will also help you control what apps to remove from booting upwhen you boot up your device.

    Thanks, I don't think I saw Keep or Currents in there.
    I did not want to disable google search unless there is something else I can use. I use google search a lot since there was nothing else that could be incorporated into system as one search for all, what else do you use for search?

    Exchange is needed, I run 3 exchange accounts + 1 hotmail + 1 gmail on stock email app, and I am using Touchdown for my work exchange.

    How about Market Feedback Agent? I disabled that on my wife's LG.
    Also, what is PC Suite Service? (and it's UI)

    I also wanted to get rid of pesky AT&T address book and Google Now nag screen.
    Also I want to disable VuTalk but I want to give it a shot first, maybe I can use that to chat with my wife's P870. Scratch that, looks like P870 does not support vutalk. So is it safe to get rid of it?

    Thanks, does All In One Toolbox work on CarrierIQ? I don't think there is anything else that keeps on returning after a reboot?

    I believe you can disable SmartShareProvider and SmartShareBeam if you do not plan to share media from your phone to your TV.
    (Someone please correct me if I am wrong about this.)

    I actually like SmartShare, and I am pissed that they integrated that into apps instead of giving us a standalone SmartShare.
    Maybe there is a setting somewhere, I wonder if anyone can help, how the heck do we stream media off DLNA device or XMBC to the phone? It was as easy as two taps on LG P870

    In Apps (ALL tab) you can disable them, you cannot remove them, but disable them and they won't restart.
