    Skype seems to be preloaded with froyo and it wont let me uninstall it! It shows it running in the background constantly and when I try to kill it it just starts back up again and wont let me uninstall...frustrating!

    Skype is part of the bloatware package that was installed when you updated to Froyo 2.2. It can not be uninstalled w/o root. Also, don't keep force closing it b/c, as you have already noticed, it will just start back up again in a matter of seconds. From what I have seen it does not use much of the battery to let it run in the background and it certainly uses a lot less battery than it takes for your phone to close the program and re open it immediately.

    Additional bloatware that can not be uninstalled w/o root is VZ Navigator and CityID among others.

    I cant wait until someone roots froyo so i dont have to go back to 2.1 and do it with s-off. then i can get rid of all those BS apps.
