    I'm confused, too.
    Complaining to the FCC about Verizon disguising an uninstallable app promo as an operating system update.
    Umm .. ok? So they put an icon u don't want on your phone? What about all the other ones? Amazon mp3. Youtube . Twitter. Facebook .. all those were put there the same way .. people might have complaned cuz slacker wasn't on there too to begin with .. do u just not like slacker?

    Nothing against Slacker. And you're right about Facebook, YouTube, Twitter, etc. You should be able to remove those, but I knew they were there when I purchased the phone. My issue is with receiving an Android message saying "We have an operating system update for you," presumably to fix some bugs, update core features, etc, only to find that it's basically just a way for them to add non-core features to the phone.

    I see what your trying to say but do u really think they Would make an update just so They can promote a free app? If they wanted to push an icon to your phone They Don't need an update to do that ( they do it all The time to blackberries) .. my guess Would be people were complaining slacker didn't come preinstalled on it so they just threw it in on the next update

    + Enhanced support for Yahoo!® IMAP email.
    + Updated Slacker application.

    Good luck trying to convince them the update was only for slacker radio.
    Anytime someone dares me to walk a mile in their shoes I do it! Because, hey free shoes and I am now a mile away from that person!

    The point is that it's just not necessary to install it as a core, uninstallable, application.

    I don't disagree with you there. For them I am sure slacker and HTC or vzw had an agreement in place to include this in the update. Which equates to one thing....money. If you read the update when it hit the phone, I believe it did say it included slacker. I don't have an incredible so I can't say that for sure but I remember all the posts about it when that update did hit.

    I know, I don't think you are wrong for being upset about it but I do think with all the announcements that mentioned what the update included, you won't be able to make a case at all.
