    I got the SF but am wondering if there is a way to delete some of the apps that came with the phone, that are always running in the background. some of the apps are; voice comands, city id, blockbuster, allshare, kindle, skype. I don't use any of these apps, and have no idea how to get them off my phone, or if I even can.

    You'll need to root [5 minute process] How to Root - Android Forums
    Then follow the list below. You cannot remove everything but most of the crap you mentioned is on the list. Apps that are safe to remove once rooted - Android Forums
    Give yourself 15-20 minutes and you'll be de-bloated.

    But remember, if you do root, that it voids your warranty.

    You are able to un-root if you have a problem. There is a nice thread at XDA on how to root, remove bloatware, and unroot.

    If this is your first time rooting a device, make sure you very thoroughly read the directions several times before attempting anything, as you always run the risk of bricking your phone, which the warranty will not cover. If you have insurance, I suppose you could drop it in a bucket of water and pay the $80 deductible and get a replacement phone
