1. Never be unarmed.
2. See Rule #1
USMC rule # 23 of gunfighting: Be polite, be professional, but have a plan to kill everyone you meet.
It was installed with the last OTA update. You have to root in order to rid yourself of it.
What's the problem with it? Just don't use it? I've found it a superior app to Pandora (and asks for fewer permissions) in almost every regard.
It would lock after 3 songs every time I tried it. Once when it locked up it restarted back up at 3:0 AM as loud as can be playing some weird Boston track. When I woke up I thought there was some really annoying car alarm going off. I was about to call the police.
That? That's a darn good reason to want rid of it.
My problem is the crappy 3G service here and the overzealous RAM Management system in FroYo keep killing it on me.
Slacker always comes up as a running app. Kill it and back in it comes on my RAZR. It is ridiculous. I don't use it. I don't mind bloatware that can't be uninstalled as long as it doesn't run unless I want it to.
I have never used Slacker. SEVERAL times I have noticed it was running, so I killed it. Only to have it start itself up again. Check the permissions it has been granted - it basically has COMPLETE CONTROL over my personal info and the ability to share that with WHOMEVER over the internet. For All I know, it has totally PWNED my Razr for whatever it needed a couple GHz of processor to do. So yeah, I wanted to uninstall it - but Can't. That's why I came to this thread.
In addition to Slacker, there's a couple other goodies I came across when trying to figure out who owns who:
In my downloaded apps, there is MARKET?!!! How might I have downloaded Market? What's up with THAT?
I clicked "Show Hidden Apps" and there was one hidden app: NFL Mobile. Like Slacker, it has more than a page of permissions (really??? It really needs to access my contacts list?). Like slacker, I never used it. It was HIDDEN?!!! And like slacker, it is non-uninstallable.
There are LOTS of apps in the 'market' that have 10,000,000, 100,000,000 downloads. But they ABUSE the permissions. And yet 100,000,000 (could that even be a real number?) people have said YES! to downloading.
I will be storing any photos/videos on my PC and FACTORY RESETTING my Razr Today. I'll let you know if NFL Mobile
is still there.
