Yes, you will need root.

To freeze the apps, you need to get the Titanium Backup app in the market. (It's one of those must have tools.) Besides backing up (obviously) you can click on a specific app to get a menu. This menu will have the freeze option. Note that you don't want the long press menu if you just want to freeze an app. Long press brings up a different menu.

Your list seems to be relative. Some people actually like AT&T Wifi hot spots. Who doesn't like free wifi?

Dumb question: What does freezing these apps do?

Freezing the app basically makes the app become completely dormant. It still resides on the phone but the system doesn't see it. It basically hides it from anything that might try to use it. You do need the paid version of Titanium Backup to use it but it's easily worth the minimal cost.

but its nice to have the back up and other options you get from TiBu. This is pretty nice for rom users as well that want to swich around and not have to reinstall everything.

Tried to freeze Live TV . TiBU says it's frozen but the icon is still there. When I tap on it, phone says it's not installed. How do I get rid of the icon?

To get rid of the icon you'll have to uninstall the app. It says its not installed because its frozen,the system won't run that app. But the app is still on the phone. I think its best just to leave them frozen.

A good HSPA connection is typically faster (ignoring ping) than an AT&T Hotspost unless you are standing on top of it.
