    The only way to remove apps like NFL Mobile Live and Nascar and whatever else you'll never use is to mess around in the ROOT file? No way! Will they do it for you at the Sprint store???

    Umm, no. :) There are two ways to uninstall, neither involving root.

    1. Go into the Market, select downloads, find the app you don't want anymore, and click Uninstall. 2. Go into Settings>Applications>Manage Applications, find the app and uninstall it from there.

    I'm referring to the seeded apps, ones that come pre-installed on the phone.

    You can't get rid of those, just ignore them. Maybe try the app called startup auditor to block them from opening.

    My phone is rooted. I uninstalled the app with the app manager but the icon still shows up and it is still taking up some (less) space on the phone. Where are the files located? Folder name?

    If not rooted, why not just disable the stock apps within app manager?

    What phone model? Some devices have additional nand security, so you won't be able to remove system apps that easily even with root (though you can through other means). HTCs for example need to be "S-Off" as well as rooted before you can do it that way.
