    Ok. I have two Samsung app's that are warning me for an update. Is there anyway I can get rid of the two app's? I won't be using them.

    To get rid of the carrier installed apps, you'll have to root your phone and then you can use Titanium Backup to get rid of them.

    before rooting, I created an "unused" folder and dropped all the bloatware on my phone into that.

    it doesn't remove them obviously, but at least i didn't have them filling up my apps pages

    Good little tip there, thanks.

    I don't mind that I cannot remove them as long as they're not syncing or running in the background.

    Rooting voids warranty

    I just hid mine in a group in the app drawer if you also just flash to the latest firmware that removes a lot too

    How do you make groups in the app drawer?

    i've tried making folders but it doesn't seem to be possible on my phone.

    app>menu> edit> add folder or add page then i get a blank box with an x in the corner if i press add again i get the choice to delete the apps on that page.

    Please help!

    edit, instead of pressing folder, drag and drop onto app screen. you'll then get the option of adding a name etc
