There are some very goods posts here.

I got several apps I wanted and used but ended up running so slow and the only way to correct was a factory reinstall.

VZW gets paid to put them on there and i presume the funding would stop if you could do that.

Look at it this way...

1-click root, Titanium Backup, freeze dem memory-suckin' apps, and you get things like wireless tether as a bonus. It's worth it. As mentioned, VZ makes bank on the loaded apps. They couldn't care less whether they annoy or not.

I was a long-time holdout regarding rooting, but I'll never go back.

As long as Verizon is getting paid to put those apps in their builds, they're not going to allow you to simply turn them off. The philosophy from Verizon (or any carrier for that matter,) will be for you to either deal with it, don't buy the phone, or use a different carrier.
