FYI, Sprint installs something called Luemn ToolBar and when you click on it it brings up Sprint Mobile Advertising program. Make sure you disabled this cr$p.

You can uninstall a bunch of apps, but that toolbar you can't until we are rooted. Some sprint apps, Nascar, NBA you can.

You probably can't uninstall the app if it is in /system until you are S-OFF. But you can flash a stock ROM with it removed with an unlocked bootloader + custom recovery.

LOL! Yea I uninstalled this crapware too. What really made me mad was the crap Sprint ID added today. Fortunately I had just read what Sprint ID is. Or else I woulda thought my default profile was gone. Changed it back in the app and deleted the crapware that added too. Today I hate you Sprint. It is my phone not yours. Ugh.

Yes /system is still write protected. Most ROMs will have all this bloatware removed.

Also unlock bootloader, then root and use your favorite app to freeze them until then.
