This is related to this question about removing apps, but I thought it was different enough to merit separate focus.
I recently bought a Samsung Galaxy 2 S, and it has a custom interface designed by Samsung.
Mostly, it's fine. However, some things bug me. For example, at the bottom of the screen, where there are standard buttons like "Phone" and "Internet" - things I'm likely to access very frequently - they have this stupid "SP Mode" mail app thing that I will never use. Ever.
I'd like to kill it, but after searching options, I don't know if I can make that kind of change.
Is it possible to get different "skins" and load them into the phone? Are existing interfaces modifiable?
Is this another thing that would require rooting the phone?
