    So i did a good deal of reading so far (ten mins i been a member) and i think i understand a few things..but cloudy on others.

    Ok so i need to download a root in order to Delete programs i dont use? (such as "City ID" and "Skype" and all the others on my APPS panel i dont use..ever..) am i correct?

    Also read on the "Sticky" that task killers actually slow my phone down? i use advanced task killer FREE and it makes my battery life WAY LONGER and gives me the ability to kill stuff i aint using.

    I really like the phone alot! i use the barcode scanner and the google goggles (which i think needs some more work IMO) and constantly google stupid stuff at work that me and the guys come up with. i really like the phone, but wouldnt mind gettin rid of some useless programs i have.. (like on my home PC) OOOoooOO, Not to forget the Full version of Angry Birds..i'm addicted to that game! its awesome! (reminds me of the game "Gorilla" that windows NT used to have)

    Can any of yinz steer me down a good beaten path for doing so?

    Thanks much guys/gals!

    -Zac

    See this site. Pretty much a good read on dev'ing, customiziing, hacking your phone. Whichever you wanna call it.

    Well, since I'm sorta too chicken to root my phone... I installed Launcher Pro. It's a home replacement app that lets you do some cool customizing. One of its features is to let you hide apps in your app drawer. While I can't delete Skype, etc, at least now I don't have to flip through them in my drawer.
