    guys, just root your phone and remove the apps yourself.

    1) download gingerbreak and root your phone

    2) install rom manager and backup your system rom before making any changes. This will create a restore point you can use to recover your factory default settings in case something goes REALLY wrong. Remember to keep usb debugging enabled in case you “brick” your phone somehow.

    3) install titanium backup and erase ANY apps you want!

    also enjoy other root perks such as overclocking the cpu, free wifi tethering and much much more

    echo comment 2, i dont want 3/4 of these crapola apps they have dumped on my phone without asking. This sucks.

    Unfortunately, this only works for the apps you installed yourself. The apps that came pre-loaded from Verizion/LG cannot be removed.

    Which sucks because I don’t want Scrabble, Tetris, etc.
