    I really want to uninstall media hub. It keeps starting in the background on its own. And most of what it has to offer is junk and costs way too much.

    My question before I do this is twofold. Is it possible to uninstall media hub? And if I can install it, will there be any negative consequences to my phone?

    Yes, but you must root your phone first

    You may want to freeze it, with Titanium, instead. I uninstalled amazonmp3 app and was unable to OTA update, because of it. I had to find and flash the stock ROM, in order to get the update. I don't know if it will cause you problems with updating but, if the OTA updates are relying on checking to make sure that the stock bloatware is on, it is a possibility. If you backup and freeze the app, you have the option of thawing it later. I have frozen a number of bloatware apps: mediahub, sprintfootballlive, nascar, drmcontentlauncher, drmcontentstorage, and amazonmp3. They never open, anymore.

    I'm downloading Titanium now. Fingers crossed! I'm sick of all this bloatware opening by itself and killing my battery. Of course, a great solution would be for us to be able to remove the apps. Since that will never happen, I'll take what I can get. Thanks for the tip!

    Rooting your phone is like getting admin access. It is legal to do but also is frowned upon by sprint. They can void your warranty as a result. If you decide to root, read, read, read before doing it.

    If you ever hve an issue that requires you to return your phone to sprint, you can always flash the stgock ROM and you will be right back to an unrooted stock phone. It would be as if yoy just bought it and never even laid a hand on it. Nothing to. Worry about.
