Default T-Mobile USA Safe Apps to Remove

Here is a list of apps that come pre-installed that you may not want on your phone. It is safe to disable/freeze/delete these (I prefer disable/freeze unless you are hurting for app space).

You can disable them by going to the app drawer > select the menu button > select "Manage apps" > Select "All" > Then you select the app you want to disable and the option to do so should be in the upper fight hand corner. You can also use an app like Titanium Backup or a file explorer that has root access.

Bloatware:
411 & More
Bonus Apps
Friend Stream (widget)
Game Base
Highlight
HTCDB-**** (languages for keyboard)
MobileLife Contacts
More for Me
My T-Mobile
T-Mobile Mall
T-Mobile Name ID
T-Mobile TV
Tell HTC
Zinio

If you don't use these, they can be considered bloat as well:
Amazon
E-mail (mail widget)(if you use a different e-mail app)
Facebook
Flickr
Gmail
Google Play Movies
Google+
Lookout
Mobile Hotspot
Slacker
Stocks (widget)
Trends (widget)
Twitter (widget)
Visual Voicemail
Watch (widget)
Where's My Water?

There is also a guide on how to Remove Carrier IQ.

There are probably others that people may consider bloatware, but this is a pretty decent list. Feel free to comment about any others you might see.

Default Awesome!

Now, had I read that about a week and a half ago, I wouldn't be crying the blues because I uninstalled the weather.htc.somethin or other....


Was anybody smarter than myself and made a stock backup of the One S?

I REALLY need it...

Thanks all!

I can get you one this evening (probably around 8pm EST).
Do you want a rooted or unrooted version?

That's good to know as I too have deleted some of these; but my device is locked so that it will not up load any programs onto it. I really need to make sure that the sim is not locked as well and I don't have a clue how to do this.

I can't disable "MobileLife Contacts", the option is greyed out. Is there anyway to disable it?

The only way to get rid of this is use a cook ROM right?

I just went thru the list manually.

I cant wait to get rid of all this bloatware.

If you're rooted, you can delete them yourself.
