    I am a newbie. First post here..I have noticed that there are a few apps on Samsung Galaxy that I will never use. I want to delete the icon and app from phone display. I go to settings>Manage Apps> and delete the app, but it still shows on display? The ones I want to get rid of are like AT&T Navagator and AT&T Code Scanner all the ones that charge to use or install. Anyone know of an App that will completely remove these programs from my phone?

    Thanks

    The only way to get rid of AT$T bloatware is to root your phone.

    An easy way to see what apps you can remove is from the Program Monitor widget. Click it then the Downloaded tab and you can see everything you can uninstall.

    If it is not on that list then AT&T will not let you uninstall the App. You can have access to uninstall or Freeze using Titanium Backup if you root your phone.

    Well, rooting is a little more involved than one click, but you can start the journey here:

    AT&T Samsung Galaxy S II General - xda-developers

    A couple of hours of reading and you may either want to give it a go, or live with the unwanted programs...
