Default Applications Safe to remove. ICS.

As many of you surely did, I checked this link:

https://spreadsheets.google.com/spreadsheet/pub?hl=en_US&hl=en_US&key=0AnO2-4y6yE1gdDJRekl4QmkyNmIzUmRvX2h3UDVkQXc&output=html

to see what applications are safe to be removed (I freeze them as suggested instead to make sure the phone keeps working).

That worksheet is very useful but a bit outdated. Now I am using ICS (neat) and would appreciate your help to see what the following apps do and if they are safe to remove being not important for my phone. Those apps are:
(few of them are on the original list but most aren't).

Thanks!
You can delete the ones that are apk files for the apps just don't mess with the dialer apk or with any of the Android os files because you are to f*** everything. Don't delete anything that you are not 100 percent sure. Good luck.

Thanks for your reply. Most of them I am not completely sure they are safe to freeze. That's why an update to the worksheet will be very helpful (I think :-)

I have frozen both the accuweather ones, as I use a different weather app. But my assumption is that the accuweather feeds weather info to the 2 live wallpapers (the one with the windmills and the sea one), so if you use them you might not want to.

Also from that list I have frozen Exchange services - I use a different email app as the stock one kept wigging out and draining the battery no matter what I did

Social hubs and software update are frozen, as are Talk, TW launcher and wifi sharing

Would this list also apply to the Galaxy Reverb?

I wouldn't risk it on the Reverb, tbh. The list was compiled pre-ICS and refers to GSM rather than CDMA devices, so the chances are that software dependencies are different.

You're sure to get a knowledgeable answer in the Reverb - All Things Root section.
