Yep, it's a simple one too. Happy to have my wife's phone rooted Removing bloat, however, is tricky -- it's hidden in an inaccessible partition and when you erase it, it restores it on next reboot.
Big thanks to mattlgroff for cracking this nut!
When you install an update to one of these apps lets use the, yahoo mail on for example, it will show in the /system/app or /data/app. The problem is the apk before the update is in /cust/t-mobile/us/app which is read only and unable to be mounted as R/W and that is why Titanium backup is unable to uninstall it.
I have tried moving it and deleting it manually with no luck. I have not tried through ADB yet but may give that a try next.
