    .. how can i uninstall those telco crabs and that huge blob of motonav laying in the phone??

    I tried to uninstall these critters in manage applications under settings but they dun show up... and also tried quick uninstall apps but it won't let me uninstall it because it says it is a system built-in applications...

    anyone??

    Download Androidmate, Root Explorer, and similar apps that let you browse through /system/app and mount it as R/W. Delete the ones you don't need.

    Alternatively, use adb to remove. Command goes:

    adb remount
    adb rm /system/app/appname.apk
