    Here's my attempt at a list of safe to disable applications on the Huawei Valiant.

    _-=*Your mileage may vary.*=-_

    Before I continue, let's make sure we all understand the steps.

    1. Open Settings- Manage Apps
    2. Click on application.
    3. Click Remove Updates
    4. Uncheck Notifications
    5. Clear cache (unnecessary?)
    6. The Uninstall Updates became Disable. Click Disable.
    7. Accept.
    8. Reboot.

    These steps appear to do the same as the Freeze option in Titanium Backup, and for free.


    Now onto the list!


    Google+
    GoogleSearch
    GooglePlay Movies
    GooglePlay Books
    YouTube
    VisualVoicemail
    TalkBack
    MyMetro
    MyExtras
    MetroPCSScreenIt
    Metro411
    MetroBlockIt
    Google magazines
    Email
    Chrome
    Appstore (has @ icon)

    There's certainly more, but I haven't tried.

    Swype is safe to disable. I reenabled it recently.

    Android Keyboard is disabled on my device, make sure you have another keyboard installed.

    Threads for other phones claim the apps you expect to replace the removed system apps need to be in the system folder... well I haven't moved a thing and have rebooted repeatedly without incident.
