    I have some default apps that I do not want on my phone, Thier permissions are too invasive as far as I am concerned.
    I have tried all the usual paths, ie, going to settings-Applications-etc but these annoying apps will not go away.

    The phone is dead standard and I have only about 6 apps that I have downloaded .
    Any advice would be appreciated.
    I have looked at the suggested threads but ... nothing there.

    What are the names of the apps?

    Have you tried Titanium Backup?
    You can delete, freeze or back up any apps that are currently on your phone.

    Just make sure the apps that you delete are not important to your phone.
    Try freezing them first to make sure there are no problems....then you can delete safely.

    Just FYI,....the last time I checked...Titanium Backup requires rooting your phone.
    Just sayin. ;)

    You are correct, it does require the user to be rooted.
