Here's my setup:
ZVC base w/TR1.7 and stock kernel. Rooted of course...

I do not use the stock voicemail app and was wondering if it can safely be removed? If so, how would I go about it?

Thanks in advance!

You can use Titanium to remove it.

You can also delete the data from settings->applications, and manually remove the apk at /system/app/vtt-sprint.apk

Usually people will call forward busy/noanswer to their google voice mail.

Another catch - when pressing on the voicemail button on the dialer the dialer will crash - No big deal though..

Awesome. Thanks for letting me know. I just got rid of it with Titanium. Exactly what I was looking for.

A couple of other quick questions if you guys don't mind?

Is there a list somewhere of "safe to delete" system apps? Like Google Voice, the stock alarm clock, analog clock, dual clock, etc. etc.? I use things that I've downloaded from the market to replace most of the stock stuff on my phone and it's basically just taking up space right now, I think.
Are the downloaded apps dependent on the stock apps? Or can I get rid of them?

Also, speaking of the voicemail button in the dialer - is there a way to "map" it to open something else? Like my 3rd party voicemail service?

Thanks again guys - you all rock! :)
