    If you are planning to root your Ascend and you don't know what you can and cannot remove, check out the link below. This covers all the bases:

    Stock Android Apps List - What you can and cannot remove!

    When in doubt...leave it out!


    Note: This covers the bases with ALL Androids so you may see some apps that do not apply to you at all.

    These apps are generic to ALL Android phones so some will not be in either Cricket or MetroPCS Ascends.

    But you should be able to find ALL of your apps in here.

    I'm also wondering if some of these could be deleted.

    Rlugo, that would be fine. If you want to go through the list at the link and refine it for us, and send it to me I will change the OP on the thread.

    I was going to do that but when I got into it became so tedious I just gave up. LOL

    But please...be my guest!!!

    I wasn't volunteering to update the list in the link. I was just wondering if some of the ones on starr's list could be removed as they are not in the list in the link.

    Actually, yes I do. That's why I want to know if I could get rid of some...

    Well, it's really only safe to remove what is on the list in the step by step rooting guide. Other than that we can't guarantee it won't create problems for you. That list was created after several weeks of experimentation with both Cricket and MetroPCS users.

    But there have been some exceptions.

    Just be careful! :)
