You still need an unlocked bootloader to do this which would void warranty anyways.

You know, I would always root, but would be much less tempted if Verizon didn't load up MY phone with bloat.

Root unlock and get system app mover and busybox. Move bloat apps from system and then uninstall them.

Can someone point me in the right direction? Looking for simple steps. I want to stay stock, no root. Would like to flash the latest leaked Jelly Bean. And then instructions on how to go back to Ice Cream Sandwich when the official Jelly Bean OTA comes out. Thank you everyone.

If you like being able to customize your interface then you should defiantly root your phone.
