I thought I would have to root for my phone to do this, but I was hoping I didn't need to and there was some other way.... Thanks, you all! :-)
Yes Lagicity, it's the bloatware as you call it that I really want to get rid of- Its running Froyo so I'll check out how to root it in the other threads.
Gasolin, Kuwaits put apps like Qiblah direction, the Holy Quran and prayer times
Casz, circumstances really. If I can't get rid of the carrier apps , I'd live with it but I would like to try. I need to find a "tweak samsung galaxy s for dummies", I'm sure its out there... but in the mean time I'll stalk forums such as these and await the advice of the nice patient people on here
