Default List of apps safe to remove

Here's a list of apps that I've removed, so far without consequence:

Sorry, the list is a mix of APK names that I manually removed, App names that I have frozen in Titanium, and package names that are backed up and uninstalled also via Titanium. I later found out that system apps cannot be restored from Titanium, so I've resorted to removing them from /system/app manually.

You'll notice that a bunch of the Bluetooth stuff is removed, because I don't use Bluetooth at all. Your mileage may vary.


Freeze list:


Google Backup Transport
Home Screen Tips
SecPhone
SIM Toolkit
SNS
SNSAccount
STK_BIP_TEST_APP
WlanTest


APK names:
(manually removed from /system/app)

BluetoothOpp.apk
BluetoothPbap.apk
BluetoothTestMode.apk
BrcmBluetoothServices.apk
ChocoEUKor.apk
DataCreate.apk
DrmUA.apk
RoseEUKor.apk
SisoDrmProvider.apk
Visual_Voicemail_3_14_21.apk
lcdtest.apk
qospermission.apk


Package names:
(backed up to sdcard and uninstalled using Titanium)

com.example.android.Metro411BL
com.handmark.metro.launcher
com.handmark.mpp.PEX
com.loopt
com.metropcs.android.metrostudio
com.mobileposse.client
com.navbuilder.app.atlasbook
com.netone.vcc
com.nuance.android.vsuite
com.nuance.nmc.sihome
com.rhapsody
com.sec.android.app.carcradle
com.sec.android.app.dlna
com.sec.android.widgetapp.stockclock
com.sec.android.widgetapp.weatherclock
miyowa.android.mpcs.mobileIM

NOT safe to remove:

Does your list still stand as originally listed? Asking because I had issues after freezing a couple of the same apps you did. Wondering if you still have the same setup as you have listed.

yes, the list is still accurate. the last issue i encountered was the media player not playing mp3's, likely due to the removal of the DRM-related packages.

what issues are you having?

I'm trying to build a spreadsheet database to be able to answer these questions. Unfortunately I can't post a direct link to it but I put it in my google+ public profile. You can find that by going to (assemble the lines below in your address bar)

www.
google.
com/
profiles/
silversword

or search for my name and click on the google profiles link

If you find your answer, and can add it to the list please do to help others in the future.
