    Hi there I was curious, is there a way to get rid of these preinstalled apps because it would be nice if i could have extra space to use other apps instead of it being wasted by useless ones.

    Is there another way or would I have to root my phone?

    Is rooting..difficult? And would it change anything about my phone that anyone could see, say if I take it in after 1 year contract is up and get a new phone?

    I havent tried root, so take it for whats it worth ... but from what I have heard/read its pretty easy, and you can reverse it.

    I think the process is reasonably simple, there is a forum dedicated entirely to root for researching, and making your decision. I would; however, proceed with caution.

    rooting is not difficult, its just very detail oriented. You have to do every step exactly the way its supposed to be done. I recently ran into problems, but they were a result of a bad cable. I'm not sure what your talking about taking it in after your 1 year contract to get a new phone( you don't have to turn in your old phone to upgrade) or did you mean taking it in prior to the year being up to get a warranty replacement. Root is completely reversible as long as your phone is working. If you bricks or gets destroyed it won't matter anyway.

    Indeed.

    The vast percentage of problems I see reported have to do with either missing a step or attempting them in the wrong order.

    That "all things" link has a wealth of information:
