    How do I get rid of the apps that Sprint loaded on the phone? I just rooted it, but the ones I don't need from sprint are still greyed out. Please help.

    you can use an app called titanium backup. it is a great app that can not only delete apps, but it can also backup your apps and its data as well as freeze and deletes apps. you will have to be careful as some of those apps may depend on other apps and it could cause your phone to not work properly. make sure that you create a nandroid backup before deleting anything. really the best thing to do is to just use titanium backup and freeze those apps and if your phone does not act weird then you should be ok to delete them.

    On the stock rooted ROM it still wont let you uninstall them. You need a root powered app to do it.

    Also, my phone likes to randomly reset. It was doing it before I rooted as well. Anyone know what may cause that?

    I rooted a buddy's Evo a while back that would randomly reboot (it wasn't an overheating issue because his Evo's temperature always felt normal), when I flashed a custom ROM/Kernel, the random rebooting ceased.

    *Correction, it wasn't a custom ROM, it was a rooted stock GB ROM.
