    I dont think we know what we are asking for. See vzw paid apple to sell the iphone and apple sets the price and the rules. So the iphone will stay the same price until the next one comes out. Android all you have to do is wait a month and you can get 2 of the same device with a bogo deal. Do I hate bloatware, yes. But in the grand scheme of things I know Ima root and run a custom rom any way so it no longer bothers me.

    So in other words, you must void your warranty in order to do something that should be offered from the start? Bloatware is not the issue, it's the part that is MUST be there no matter what, unless we want to void our warranties. I'm a practical user, and I use my phone normally, so I'd like to keep it stock. I shouldn't have to modify my phone to get rid of some silly program that is not essential to the OS.

    you could get every member on this site and it would still get blown off. Verizon is not going to give up millions of dollars per year just because a very minuscule number of android users vote on a poll..

    im not trying to be condescending i just think your wasting your time.

    Then just buy a device that doesn't have it. No warranty voiding needed.

    It's all about the effort. Whether we get blown off or not, were not asking for something that is unreasonable. The mast majority of people are voting to have it removable not to get rid of it from the start. My Razr gave me the option to delete the NFS and Golf app on my phone, where my GFs Stratosphere are forced on. So they can possibly just give us the option to remove.

    Its all about the MON-NAY!!!! Verizon is paid to put it there as was stated an we are the 1 percent of androiders who really utilize our devices. They feel if its on the phone permanently you may after time break down an use the app. Verizon makes money I'm sure the manufacturers make money so why would they stop? It used to bother me then I rooted then when I could upgrade I went with the nexus.
