Hey!

I'm new at this, and I just got my LGO2X today. The question I have is this:
Can I, without problems, remove following apps:

- Facebook, Twitter and MySpace for LG?
- Preinstalled apps?
- Car Home?
- RemoteCall?
- SIM Toolkit?

Is it possible to freeze or disable so that the icon for alarm/clock and call log disappears but can be used?
I think it's stupid to have those icons that can be launch via the app "Clock" and "Phone" instead.

If you use LauncherPro then you can go to Preferences > General Settings > Hidden Apps
By that you still have the app's installed but they won't take up space in the drawer.
