I have a Galaxy S4 that is now off contract (I don't think that matters). Just updated to Lollipop. I would like to clean my phone of all the Verizon and Samsung crapware that is taking up so much space on my phone. What's the best way to get rid of the crap without ruining the phone? Do I need to root it and/or install a different system image? I am also thinking of leaving Verizon and going with Total Wireless from Walmart. $35 for unlimited talk/text and 2.25gb data. That's more than I get from Verizon now and I pay about $75 a month. Total Wireless uses Verizon's network. Bonus pic of my best friend.
