    I already downloaded Advanced Task Killer, but anyone know if there is a way I can have the bloatware apps like Mobile IM, City ID, V Cast Apps, VZ Navigator, etc quit turning themselves on?

    I have never used a single one of them since I bought my Thunderbolt last night, yet they continue to turn themselves on after I run Task killer.

    Also, how do I delete an app after I decide I dont like it, and by that I mean ones I have downloaded. I understand I cannot do anything about the bloatware.

    Thanks in advance for any assistance.

    You can't prevent bloatware apps from starting by themselves. The only way is to root it and get rid of the bloatware.
