    Hey,
    I just got the phone, read over the whole FAQ and had some questions.
    1. Is there a way to keep wifi on as the phone seems to turn it off, or does it really kill the battery?

    2. Is there any application that is capable of removing the system apps. I didn't understand what they meant when that was asked in the faq.

    Thanks

    Wifi generally drains battery life since it's constantly looking for a network to connect. So shut it down if you don't need it.

    What system apps are you talking about? And why would they need to be removed?

    To remove apps you need to be rooted. There are several threads showing you how do it. Its easy. Then you need to adb and remove them through adb.
