I can tell you most Verizon apps are safe to remove. I removed, voice-mail, my Verizon, and both of the backup assistant files. Most of the Samsung apps can also be removed. You just have to be careful not to remove something that's needed like Bluetooth or WiFi, stuff like that

Not to sound like a smart Alec but you do realize that's for the Sprint S3 and we have a huge amount of different apk files

Edit: and after actually looking through the list I realize we have a lot of these files, :banghead:

Whatever you do, don't remove the default dialer app. I did, and had to reflash.
