    Is there any way to remove pre-installed programs?

    For example, the following programs were pre-installed:

    Amazon MP3
    Footprints
    Teeter

    and maybe some others.

    I've just tried:

    Settings | Applications | Manage Apps

    and noticed there's not always an option to Uninstall on these and some others.

    Is it possible to remove, delete, uninstall, or get them off the device?



    Is there any way to remove the pre-installed Sprint programs?

    Sprint TV
    Sprint-Nextel
    NFL
    Nascar


    Are there some "core apps" or "core programs" that can't be removed?

    A brief search on this matter on related threads seems to indicate only on "rooted" phones.

    Edit:

    Just found this:

    This is a multiple duplicate post. The answer is no unless you root.

    I remember someone in another claiming HTC said they would enable removal of Sprint apps in a software update, but I haven't seen anything directly from either company on the matter so don't hold your breath.
