    More Tips:
    ~Disable Apps (yes, even Sprint Apps) - Go to menu/apps/all/ and locate the app you don't want and "Disable" is at the top of the screen.
    For the Sprint apps, it will say in some cases "Uninstall Updates" but just do that, then you will have the "Disable" option.

    ~Restore backed up Apps from old card:
    Many Apps can be backed up on a regular basis, here is the way to get your backed up Apps to restore on your new phone:
    Connect USB to Phone & PC -> Select: Media Sync mode
    On PC, Open My Computer -> Select EVO drive -> you will see a card folder & a phone folder
    Copy n paste backed up apps like Chomp & BP log & Grocery King folders from card to phone.
    Disconnect from PC, Open app like Chomp & BP log & Grocery King -> settings-> restore.

    ~Access HTC EVO 4G LTE internal storage:
    Connect USB to Phone & PC -> Select: Media Sync mode
    On PC, Open My Computer -> Select EVO drive -> you will see a card folder & a phone folder
    Drag & drop as required

    ~Hard reset:

    1. Turn the power off. If your HTC EVO 4G is frozen, pull the battery out and reinsert it
    2. Hold the Volume Down button
    3. Press and release the Power button
    4. You are now presented with a menu that allows for Fastbook, Recovery, Clear Storage, and Simlock
    5. Select Clear Storage by pressing the Volume Down button
    6. Press and release the Power button
    7. Now simply confirm your decision: Volume Up for YES and Volume Down for NO

    I can't seem to find an app to download that has the exact name "App Launcher" ... is there a bit more you could give us: logo, who produced it, maybe a new name that it got changed to?

    Thanks,

    Just wondering - Why? I'm new to the droid world, and hesitant to mess up my phone if there's not a benefit or advantage. Thanks in advance.

    You can't completely uninstall Sprint apps without rooting the phone, so disable is the next best thing.
