Default Apps That Are Safe to Remove From 4.4.2 [NC4]

I've removed the following 147 apps from BeansTown106's 4.4.2 [NC4] ROM but can be removed from any NC4 ROM. If you're on the OTA you should remove any corresponding odex files as well. There are more apps that can be removed but these are the ones I've deleted so far. Please keep in mind that you use your phone differently than I do so some of these may interfere with your daily use if renamed/removed but everything I use works fine for me. I have completely removed them but the best thing to do is to rename them with a .bak extension in Root Explorer (or similar app) to be sure that they aren't going to cause any issues for you after rebooting. You could also copy them to your external SDcard for safe keeping and then delete them from the appropriate system folder. I am not responsible for any issues you may have when removing these app.

These apps can be removed from any NC4 ROM, if it's the OTA you should remove the odex file as well. I also updated the OP to show this information.

when i froze the magazine app with TB, it made my email crash. was wondering if you have facebook installed on your phone. i cant seem to get the location to post anymore. i used to be able to tap the little location emblem, and then at the bottom of the screen on the next page, the city would be highlighted in gray. you could tap on it and then it would add it to your post. are you able to do this? i think something i froze may have caused this. thanks in advance

I don't use the stock email app or Facebook, did you freeze locationservices or VzwLbs? It could be one of those. I'm glad you to the safe route and froze them.
