So the Mrs has bought me a Sammy S2 for my birthday, and its a giant leap from my old Sanfrancisco !
But its loaded with junk I dont need... google + etc.

I am totally happy with the phone as is, apart from the junk loaded by default... is there any way to remove this without a root ?
If not, whats the easiest method to get it done ?

Thanks
Paul

You can use this method:

I personally didn't use this method but many people have left positive feedback.
It should work for you since you are on XWLPT which is ICS.

To remove your bloatware, there are many apps available. One is "Root Uninstaller" which is available on the Play Store

All the junk providers add to "their" rom... Mainly operators own apps such as orange Wednesdays etc they all do it, and it all takes up memory and processor time that you can reclaim by un installing the apps, but without root, you cannot get at them.
