    The G2 came with some crap preinstalled like PHOTOBUCKET.
    I hate photobucket and want it off my phone.
    Its always running in the background and once every couple days I get a notification telling me to upload my media to photobucket.


    But when I try to uninstall it wont let me.

    dont forget amazon mp3 is also running in the background as well.

    i guess we have to wait for the root then it can be deleted

    T-mobile just love to stick a bunch of useless crap on their phones.

    At least they have finally done away with all the MyFaves bullshit.

    I think you're going to have to wait for full root before you can delete that stuff unfortunately...

    ^agreed

    Root Explorer works great for this on my CM6 HTC Hero - but you need root to do it...

    I see no value to web2go - what is the consensus on trashing it, along with Amazon, Photobucket, etc...?
