Please help. Driving me nuts having to look at these useless apps
Hello there.... I wish I can't help you but pre-installed bloatwares can't be deleted unless your phone is rooted
(releasing from hardware lock). Just remember, once you're rooted, you will no longer have your warranty. I'd heard tons of bricking experiences from rooted users with various reasons such as....flashing wrong files, not following the instructions, using bad roms, kernels, etc, etc..... So...if you're not really familiar with 'rooting', I wouldn't bother doing it.
Sometimes advanced task killer (free version) can you kill off those bloatwares which are opened automatically. Try it and see...you'll like it.
