Its all about $$$. I would not mind it being there if we were allowed to delete it. Theses companies think if I am forced to look at their app (Blockbuster for example), that I will eventually use it??? Does anyone use VCast? People pay for ringtones? They need to be slapped.
I think this is a great thread, we should voice our concerns to Moto, if enough people complain, maybe the higher ups will take notice. And something may be done about it. Moto could just say to vzw: "No, we will not lock your apps on our device. We believe in the customer experience, etc, etc." Squeaky wheel gets the grease.
And I don't believe for one minute the device would cost more without it. You lock into a contract with VZW for 2 years, that's their $$$ maker right there.
You're free to call customer service all you want. I'm all for getting them to make bloatware removable. Just be respectful to people who are simply doing their job. It's not them who put the bloatware on, and they cannot do a thing about it.

I have to agree to that. The hourly workers answering the phone have just as much control as we do. The way to get a response is to email vzw. They HAVE to respond to emails and most of the time you will get a call from a person looking to resolve your issue. They are just like you and I working a job. Now they want to do their job well, but like any worker if you make their day long and hard they not going to want to deal with you. If you are respectful and nice most of the time they will do what they can do to help. All they can do is send it to their superiors and they can send it up...and so on. But you have to look at it from a business stand point. It is a give and take thing and its a bout solutions. So if you present them a solution to dealing with this then they can have something to work with.
Whoa. When people were saying it had a lot of bloatware I thought maybe like.. 10-12 apps? Not 28! Can't wait to get this stuff off.. Still, such an amazing phone.
