    Yay so my phone finally arrived (ordered it the 9th from Wirefly).

    So far I love it! It's wayyyy faster than my Huawei Ascend.

    Only thing I don't like about it so far is that it's so slippery! I've dropped it twice already (on carpet), and I NEVER drop phones. At least that case I bought for it should be here today or tomorrow. Even my Huawei Ascend felt sturdier than this phone......but this is so much faster so I don't care.

    So I already installed the Nova launcher for it and I'm looking to delete bloatware now. Is there a list anywhere of bloatware that is safe to uninstall?

    Unrooted thees an applications manager that you can uninstall alot of the added bloated apps.

    Rooted, there's a list in the Motion All things Root forum of apps you can freeze or delete.

    I don't plan to root my phone. I don't see the point.

    Anyways I know you can delete bloatware in the app manager, but I don't know what's safe, what I need, ect....

    Edit: Nevermind, clicked your link XD

    I am in apps manager, but I see no way to remove anything. Only disable and force close. Is that what you mean?

    And yeah, Ascend is my "old" phone lol.

    For this phone, is the charger USB port thingy suppose to be opened and exposed?

    Just making sure something didn't fall or break off my phone. All phones I've ever had have a piece of plastic protecting that part.

    its always open, your phone is fine. My phone takes a beating everyday and it still works well.

    Once you disable it, it's removed, it does not run, its like "freeze" in tinanium back up.

    Ive deleted it on mine, but there's and applications manager on first page(i think) after you click the applications drawer button. It allows you to delete a few of the extra apps

    Okay so this is going to sound dumb, but whatever.

    This came with my phone, and says I need to insert it to activate my phone.

    The SD slot is in the back with the battery, I know, but it won't fit..........I've tried every which way to put it in, and it won't.

    What am I doing wrong?

    I had no idea it was behind the battery! My old phone didn't have that slot XD

    I picked the live wallpaper Falling leaves for the time being, but why do all the leaves disappear off my screen and never come back? Am I suppose to press something to make them appear again?

    Thank you, I dropped my phone in the toilet and put it in the oven. Close enough, right?

    It's buzzing and melting a little, I think that means it's working.
