    Hello,

    Yesterday I bought a LG Optimus Black from a shop that sells phones for several different mobile service providers. I chose to go with Virgin mobile but when I got the phone home it is preloaded with all this garbage for Optus. There is a category under Applications entitled "Optus" which cannot be removed and it is filled with several different options that all take you to the Optus webpage.

    I was just wondering if it is possible to get rid of this garbage by reinstalling android and how I can go about doing it.

    I'm a complete phone noob and any help would be appriciated :)

    Cheers,
    Alison
