    Thumbs down FCC Complaint - Verizon's Slacker Radio Push

    Is anyone else pissed that Verizon pushed this crap under the guise of an operating system update?

    I've filed a complaint with the FCC, I'd encourage others to do the same.

    Why would I? Slacker is much better than Pandora in my experience when it comes to musical picks. Not once have I heard opera on my Metallica station, or barbershop quartets on my Alice in Chains station since I stopped using Pandora.

    I also didn't like how the Pandora app wanted to look at my contact list and send text messages.

    Plus we all know what happened on the planet Pandora and who wants to be associated with that..................just sayin
    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!

    Hatred is by far the ugliest trait any human can possess (think about it)

    Principle, mostly. I don't appreciate having my device modified with without approval.

    In that case I suggest you root it and take full control of it.

    I switch back and forth between root and OEM. BlackBerry users, unfortunately, have the same stuff pushed and they can't root their devices.

    Complaining to the FCC about Verizon disguising an uninstallable app promo as an operating system update.

    Slacker is way much better, almost commercial free. Taking it up to fcc, too much of hassle. When it can just be removed, with less work than complaining!
