    prevent apps from starting AND uninstall question

    Good day. Thanks in advance for your help. I have a Verizon HTC Incredible 2 with Android 2.3.4.

    1. I find that certain apps starting without requesting them. This is not necessarily at start up. Examples are VZ Navigator, My Verizon Mobile, Slacker, Google Search, Stocks, News, and Facebook. I believe all of these come preinstalled, courtesy of Verizon. Can I prevent these apps from starting? I do use FB from time to time, but don't use the others afaik.

    2. Is there a way to uninstall most of these Verizon apps WITHOUT rooting the phone. If yes, which ones are safe to uninstall without screwing up my phone, as how can I do it. There are no uninstalls for these apps, unlike others.

    Regards,

    Mark
