On carrier apps...

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Just something i thought of... Because im working like a dog to clean up my music library to fit on the 16gb HTC One X that ATT is getting...

How much space are the mandated carrier apps going to chew up? Can I uninstall them? will it be a royal PITA to do so?

Also how do you sync music to it? im guessing its more like a flash drive than an iphone....

You need to root to get rid of most carrier-added bloatware, but in my experience they don't take up an excessive amount of space. I don't believe any particular method is 100% reliable when using stock OS.

A better solution, in my opinion, is to wait for a nice ROM to come along with all the junk cut out. I honestly can't imagine you being able to fit too much more in there by getting rid of that stuff, though.

Or, you know, use Music to store your songs on the cloud... I have 17.5GB of music, and my phone reads 22.13GB (of 32GB advertised) free. Access to all my music as long as I have data, or some of my favorite playlists if I wander out of a coverage area.

Ah alright, i was concerned theres like 5gb of bloat on there or something like that..which would render my efforts at doing this completely pointless

I dont have THAT much music, I actually have gotten my stuff down to about 9.8gb and im about halfway down the list.. I know theres a lot more i can get rid of... I'm basically assuming ill have about 12gb free on it (Using my 16gb Transformer as a baseline, it has 12.8gb to start off after the OS is installed) and im trying to get my music down to 8-9gb, Which i think is probably doable at this point... Which should hopefully give me about 3-4gb for Apps/photos/etc plus any possible future growth...

Basically i discovered that by having so much space i never had to worry about it... I hung onto a lot of stuff i really should have deleted...

Cloud storage is an option I suppose... I just wasnt sure if the US ATT one is getting that awesome dropbox deal (25gb of online storage)
