    I deleted mine and haven't had any issues. Titanium defender won't back up the .apk files of pre-installed apps (such as the ATT bloatware) but if you need to put them back later they are available online. Just make sure you don't delete any of the google services, you need those.

    how can you delete att bloatware from phone itself? can you uninstall them from phone without hookup to computer?

    Yes, get Titanium Backup from the market. It does require ROOT access!

    You're no longer using an iPhone, you don't have to sing the iPhanboi mantra any more! ;)

    LOL, I swear if I jailbroke my iPhone I bet Steve Jobs would be at my front door the next day with a SWAT team, Apple doesn't like it at all.

    Yea, we've seen that Apple will literally do just that (ie. the prototype iPhone 4 that Gizmodo got there hands on) :D
