    First of all you must root, then there are a number of apps such as Titanium that will do it.

    You can't unless you are rooted.

    I believe that the SGS2 lets you create a folder in the programs. Than programs can be moved into folders. You could than move all the bloatware to 1 folder.

    It would be nice if we could do that on the Bionic.

    You can. You can create folders in the app drawer.I have one aptly named "Bloat" so I don't have to look at it.
    And one called "everyday" for the stuff I do.
    And, not communism, free market. :)

    Open your app drawer and click the little icon in the top left. Select the option to make a new app group.

    I had to chuckle when I read that comment. At 3am, with little sleep and on pain medication, things can get weird. Anyway, I read, at a quick glance:

    Open drawer.
    Click the little icon at the top. :D

    I would have said that, but you already did.

    I would, personally, root, then install either AntTek App Manager (free) or Titanium PRO (not free to freeze), and just freeze the apps and make them GO AWAY.

    Or, do what I did, and just get GO Launcher EX, and hide the apps from the tray.

    It is great that you can create a folder, but it still sucks that you have to root the phone basically voiding your warranty to get rid of apps that take up valuable space on the phone.

    I didn't have any immediate plans to root the phone the phone as having a free wifi hot spot was the only thing I really cared about and it was not that big of a deal. However, now, I will be looking in to it and if something bad happens, the phone will just have to magically disappear.

    Can a rooted phone be un-rooted?........and is it correct that once rooted that you will not receive software updates?

    Thats incorrect, you will still recieve updates if your rooted, however you do not want to accept them, most likely they will break root, the updates usally get patched by devs soon after release so that they wont break root.


    And yes, phones can be un rooted.

    And for god's sake don't DELETE the bloat! DELETE the wrong file and you've bricked it. Rename or Freeze it.
