So, I'm worried that the question formulated below may actually be part of the bigger problem of bloatware. I may be biting off more than I can chew to remove it. If this is a rooting issue, I'd rather just suck it up and deal with bloatware (I'm not tech savvy enough). Nevertheless, I uninstalled some of the bloatware and generally crappy apps (Nascar, Blockbuster, TeleNav GPS, etc.). Annoyingly, Play keeps notifying me to update them. I don't want these apps on my phone, and obviously don't need/want to update them. Any ideas about how to remove the update notifications? If anyone has successfully done this, I'd love to know how. By the way, it's an EVO 3D on Sprint, if that helps.
