You can disable them when you see them

Disable what? My understanding is that the bloatware doesn't automatically load, just that it sits there, taking up storage that could be used for content (photos, videos, songs, etc.) chosen by the user.

If the bloatware automatically loads and burns CPU cycles, that is even worse. :-(

Go to setting> app, go to the all tab and look for that app, tap on it and hit disable, it won't use CPU, or ram or anything but the storage on the ROM (you can't uninstall sorry) but it will be as if the app does not exist :3 no root needed (4.0 feature)

But if you disable them they don't use almost any storage, right? I mean, first, they don't have any data stored within them. And I seem to remember that some bloatware like that asks to download the actual app if you click on it, Like, some of them is just a shortcut to the app in the market, not an actual **MB app.

Well I recommend you clean the cache, but after they are removed they won't use any more space that the one they had. For example a 3Mb bloat will use 3Mb when disabled, if you already downloaded something on the app then you just clear the data and and should be good to go

Explains the death of Verizon Apps.

Why do all the work when someone else can, no overhead, and a cut of the revenue.

More dogfood bloatware.

Thanks guys!

Sh!t!!!!! I hate this. But can't you just disable all that immediately? I'll quit checking Amazon from PC too if they keep jamming it down my throat.

Ya, I think I have made my mind up, after my contract ends next year with Verizon....only Nexus devices from now on. I just hope by then ATT will have improve their service here...or I might have to give Tmobile a try
