    Two part question, both related.

    1. Why are Android phones set up the way they are requiring a "rooting" procedure to perform certain functions?

    For example: Say I bought a Dell computer, loaded it up, and found software I didn't need. I could just uninstall the unwanted software and move on, no big deal... Not the case with these phones. I have apps that came with the phone that I'll never use. They just take up disk space. :rolleyes:

    2. Is their any work around?

    Is their any way to uninstall factory apps with out rooting?

    HTC EVO 4, 2.2 OS

    Thanks
