    Hello,
    You were all so helpful last time, I thought I would try it again.

    If I purchase an app (I am looking at lock 2.0 and Beautiful Widgets) and I get a different phone/upgrade will I have to purchase them again or is it tied to my google account? If it is where would I find that info? Does it just get charged through Verizon?

    How the heck do I get rid of MP3 store?. It constantly turns its self on and I will never use amazon to purchase music.

    Can any of you do anything about the weather in western NY?

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    To my knowledge, it is tied to your Google account. Read here:

    You cannot without root access.

    Consider it done. :D

    Thanks Bishop!
    One more question,
    How is one charged for the market purchases? Does it appear on your verizon bill?

    No way other than rooting of getting rid on that stupid MP3 store?

    Rooting is the only way to get rid of many of those stock apps.

    Alternatively you can install a task killer/manager that will prevent them from automatically starting, but they're there. ;)

    Purchases are made to a credit card or debit card. The info is entered at the time of purchase.

    I recommend not using a task killer. from what I gathered, the mp3 store isn't actually "running" in the background. A lot of those stock apps are kept at a ready state in order to be used by other apps. IE footprints is used with the camera app, and mp3 store is used with apps like shazam.

    I agree with that recommendation after using Advanced Task Killer for two weeks.

    At first I thought it was my imagination, or perhaps other factors, but it slowed my phone down. I tested it and re-tested it by simply uninstalling it and going about my cache clearing and "force stop" routine manually, then re-installing it in two days.

    I reluctantly advocated them for a while, thinking they were helpful, but after running one for a while I found that task killers/managers seem to needlessly take up resources otherwise best used by system functions and other more useful applications.
