    I have noticed that all smartphones are coming packed with various features and programs and some of them I never use or rarely use. It is interesting becuase when you buy the device from the store, the salesman touts all of the phones capabilities and we listen in awe. We buy the phone and proceed to only texting, phone calls, light web browsing, and maybe GPS. Capabilities like geotagging, voice dialing, taking videos, and changing themes ae things I rarely do. What are some of the features or programs that came with your BB that you rarely or never use?

    I forgot about those. I used to play brick breaker then I moved to word mole (which is a really cool game by the way) but haven't played any of the games in months.

    Games? Does BlackBerry do games? Is it as good as PSP? If not, why bother?

    I have a ton of apps on my Bold that I have never and probably will never use. These apps came with the OS and I wish I could get them off - but if they have to stay - it's no biggy with me...

    Here's my list of unused/unwanted apps/features...XM Radio - AT&T navigator - Search - Games - mediaNet - AT&T Mall - Music ID - Yellow Pages Mobile - PacMan - Scrabble - Tetris - Music videos - Mobi TV - Make-Ur_Tones - Brain challenge - TwitterBerry - Community - Cv - Shop Music -My Cast Weather - and Visual Voice Mail.

    I think that AT&T should set it up so that those apps/features will just delete themselves from your phone after about 6 months if you don't subscribe to them.

    Peace...

    BrickBreaker. I still can't believe people keep this for more
    than a day.

    Media Player. everything it does, it does horridly.

    Text Messaging. The flat out dumbest way to communicate. EVER!!

    Yeah I removed them by going to the options icon>advanced options>applications>and let it build the list and removed what I did not use that way.Since I did not use them ha why keep them and if I change my mind I can get them back or reload a old backup before I removed them .

    I didn't think that you could remove the help I have anywhere between 30MB and 35MB. If I took out Word Mole, Password Keeper, and help do you think it would increase much? Also, where could I get them back from if I decided I wanted them?

    BBM/Games/Voice Dialing are things I pretty much never use. Except brick breaker... that is good for a long bus ride.

    All of the AT&T included stuff is useless, as are the games. I never tried the games, even on the first day I got my BB.

    I never use password keeper, voice dialing, or PIN messaging either.

    I don't like any video games. I wouldn't even want a PSP, XBOX, OR Wii.

    Because not everybody has a PSP/Or they don't carry it with them everywhere they go. I like to kill time just fooling around with a game here and there.

    I don't use any of the pre-packaged AT&T crap. PW keeper, help, voice notes recorder, AT&T Navigator are others.

    The only way my young'ns can touch the phone is if playing brick breaker so it stays...lol
