    Hi! Does anyone know which pre-installed apps can be safely frozen or removed from the LG vortex?

    I'm sure someone else could help me expand this list of "bloatware" but heres what I can think of off hand...

    Tetris - (trial install)


    Slacker Radio



    Any and ALL of the "V-Cast" crap.

    And "Vz Navigator" (useless)

    Like I said, there may be more, and if your reading this and know of others, please post it!

    ok, so are you saying all of those can be frozen or deleted? I know those are all useless and just wasting space and I would like to get rid of as many as possible. Thanks.

    I was able to remove a majority of the bloatware after I rooted my phone (2.2.2). I installed Titanium Backup root and I went into "Backup & Restore" and selected which apps to uninstall. They they have no been removed.

    Still new to this rooted phone thing, don't know how to make a nandroid backup. :rolleyes:

    The nandroid backup option is in the custom recovery menu, thats if u have a custom recovery installed
