Thank you... Hopefully this can get a sticky and serve as the main reference. :thumbup:

This list is great, thank you!

One pretty glaring caveat though...the "entitlement" process is needed for turning on the hotspot. When you don't have this process, the phone can't dial back to verizon to get auth to use the hotspot service and nothing happens when you try to check the "Mobile Hotspot" box in settings.

I'm running the OTA 4.1.1 that just came out ( 9.1.41.XT926.Verizon.en.US if you're coming to this thread from THE FUTURE).

I figured this out by doing a binary search of your list (freeze half, check the hotspot, then search the subset, etc.) however, when I originally followed your list I didnt take *all* the processes, so there is the slight possibility that there is another process that one would need in order to get the hotspot running.

I also did a reboot and tried a bunch of other functionality as a bit of a smoke-test, but I think this thread is a fantastic start to a really solid list. Would you mind editing the above list with a caveat, such as:

Another little nit-pick. Maybe change your subject to change from "remove" to hide? If some root newbies find this post and use TB to actually delete these apps, they will be stuck at the next upgrade.

As for the list, in my opinion only many of what you have listed is possibly "overkill". I'm all for getting rid of the blatant stuff like:

- amazon suite
- imdb
- mc3
- NFL mobile
- real racing
- zappos, etc

But many of the things in your list are service provider apps supporting other fuctions, and are not even actively running if not using those fuctions. Its not like we are hurting for memory, and none of those show up in the top 10 battery users or data users. Many of those wont even cleanup your app drawer.

Again, only my opinion.

Updated to reflect the Entitlement issue. I don't have a VZW phone, so I didn't know about this.

I am trying for a stock experience, so I was kind of comparing my Nexus vs. Razr HD -- if you don't like it you don't have to remove it!

Oops! I didn't realise I had "Text messaging" listed, since I use CyanogenMod's messaging app. I've since updated the list to reflect this.

Are you using an app to freeze / disable? The ones that I've tried all work with apk files rather than com.vzw.backup.crapware
