easiest way..

load a custom ROM that dont have them on there...
or one that lets you uninstall them.

take a look at..
sprint lover.. for close to stock
Myn's Warm RLS5.. for nice theme

that entire ROM installation/flashing process is OD confusing. The more I read about it, the more it seems like its as hard as diffusing a bomb.

Loading ROMs can be a little intimidating at first, but once you've done it, you can't stop. Just read the first post (OP) or two of the ROM announcement thread over at XDA. It will give you all the instrucitons you need, and it's not difficult at all. If you have questions about the process just ask.

Here's a link to the ROM threads on XDA:

listen...

you have a safety net!!!!!
do a Nandroid backup. and that is your safety net.
if anything goes wrong... you can restore it..
and be back to exactly where you were before.

get the Myn's Warm
[ROM] Myn’s Warm TwoPointTwo - [RLS 5 - 01/07/2011] - More Than Meets The Eye! - xda-developers
download the ROM.. dont worry about all the extra and themes.. till you are ready to try..
remember to nandroid backup before you try something.

Installation Instructions:

1. Download Rom and Radio/Wimax updates and place in the root of SDCard.
2. Reboot into Recovery.
3. Perform Nandroid backup
4. Minimally wipe dalvik and cache. For optimal experience, perform full wipe (data/dalvik/cache).
5. Flash the rom first.
6. Then the radio/wimax update. While the radios are flashing you'll see a little green arrow phone icon for a bit afterwords, Wait on this. You will then automatically be taken back to recovery.
7. Once back in recovery, reboot.
8. Enjoy

if your phone is purchased in 2011..
I dont think you need to worry about the radio/wimax updates.. so you can skip those steps.
again.. nandroid is your friend.

** if you do think you need to update the radio/wimax... stop.. do a lot of more reading!!!!!

Flashing a new ROM will definitely remove all the Sprint crap. But for those that want to stick with the stock ROM, do NOT delete any system apps or you will never be able to get any system updates in the future (Gingerbread? if Sprint/HTC plan on pushing it out) unless you put all the system APKs back and reset the UNIX permissions correctly.

My own app Bloat Freezer allows you to freeze apps instead of deleting them. Freezing them allows you to defrost the apps at anytime so you can use them again, or get system updates and it freezes/defrosts in one click making is super friendly and easy.

Bloat freezer is in the market. Titanium Backup Premium also has a freezing feature but is much more expensive due to all the other features it has.
