Any advice would be appreciated.

Samsung Epic 4g - Tested List Of Bloatware That Can Be Removed / Renamed

I'd like to remove the sprint bloatware, but i've read that you need to be careful of what you remove, and also that on some devices it needs to be there for a 2. 2 update.

Is there a tested list of bloatware that can be removed or renamed? I'd like to get rid of things like amazon, football, nascar etc.

Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 Mini/pro - Remove Irritating And Pointless Apps

I just received my new x10 mini on vodafone, and installed pc companion, which prompted me to install a phone software update. On restarting after the update, i have several new crappy apps in my apps pane (e.g. Guitar hero 5 trial, uno trial, wwtbam2010, monopoly trial and various other nonsense).

How to get rid of this stuff? I don't want it on my phone. I want the apps that i choose and use.

I've gone to the settings > applications > manage applications menu, and tapped into the various offending apps, but can't find any way to delete/uninstall them.

Samsung Vibrant - Phone Really Booted Or Not

I'm a newbie to android phones , i got the samsung vibrant for tmobile last month , i downloaded an app from the market which is one click lag fix(ryanza's) . And accidentally tapped a button which says: root your phone it took few seconds and said that my phone is rooted. Is that possible ?

Is there anything that i can do to know if my phone is really booted or not?

I looked at the history here in this foroum and found a similiar post i , so i downloaded the titanium back as what was said in there and upon opening it an error message comes up :
"Sorry, i could not acquire root privileges . This application will*not*work!Please verify that your rom is rooted and includes busybox and try again "

Does that mean my phone is not rooted? Should i still expect to recieve the update from tmobile in november?Cause this is what i'm concerned about !

Samsung T959 Vibrant Problem

I just purchased t959 vibrant to use with windmobile in toronto. I am having a weird problem as sometimes while i am using the phone, the phone lock screen comes on, almost as if it just restarted, and starts to search for network and media scan. I don't think its a simple screen lock, because if the lock came on due to inactivity, the screen wont come back on by itself. I think it might be a defective piece. Anyone had similar issue and was able to bypass it.

Samsung Vibrant - How Slow Non-native Browsers Are

It's odd reading reviews of other browsers in which users proclaim how lightening fast other browsers are compared to the native one. On the vibrant, other browsers are excruciatingly slow. Cnn (m. loads in under 2 seconds using 'web', while it takes other browsers up to 10 seconds, sometimes longer. It's really very odd, and it makes me think that 3rd party browsers on the vibrant cannot shine the way they do on other devices.

Samsung Vibrant - Wallpaper App To Set Up

I am really frustrated with the set as wallpaper function on the vibrant. It doesn't allow me to set the whole picture into the screen, instead i have to zoom in or out manually to set it as a wallpaper ( i know , due to the wide screen on the samsung ) .

But is there any app that i can just as as wallpaper straight from the original picture ? I download couple great wallpaper from the wallpapper app, it let me set it full screen without doing anything .

Then when i change to different one , if i go back the the previous one , then i have to use the pinzom to set up wallpaper again which is hard to do.

Samsung Galaxy S (vibrant) Home Key Issue

It was too good to be true. A perfectly working phone. So i started having the issue where the home key doesn't register alot of times, and apparently its a known issue over the net. Many people are having this same issue where the home key doesn't work properly. Every other key is perfect, but the home key doesn't listen. I wonder if samsung will recall it, or could this be fixed with a firmware update? Or is it hardware? That's why i should have bought from t-mobile so i dont have to deal with wirefly.

Samsung Galaxy Gps Problem With T-mobile Vibrant

I read that tmobile has a 20 day return policy so i am thinking about returning my galaxy because the gps issues have not been fixed by samsung. Then i think i will walk back in the store and buy another galaxy and wait another 18 days and if the gps isn't fixed take that one back and keep doing that until they get a fix. I just dont want to be stuck with a phone that spins like a frisby while trying to navigate.

I sent an email to samsung but haven't heard anything back. I been tossing around the idea of rooting the phone but if that doesn't fix it i gotta de-root to take it back.
