    This will matter to some, some it won't so .. yea. Here's a list of bloatware that came on her phone.

    Amazon Kindle
    Blockbuster
    GooMeeting
    Flash pre-installed (not considered bloatware to me, just noting it's installed)
    Guided Tours (no idea what that is)
    Help Center ?
    IM
    Let's Golf 2
    Madden NFL12
    A couple Moto apps... I've never seen but some may have before MOTOActiv & MOTOPRINT
    NETFLIX
    NFL MOBILE
    QuickOFFICE
    Slacker
    Social location
    Sound Networking
    Task Manager (she may have put this one, don't know) but it appears pre-installed
    V Cast Tunes
    Verizon Video
    Videosurf

    Plus a couple of other Verizon apps. I mean... to me this is crazy. I haven't had a stock phone since I bought the D1 so is all of this expected?

    Yes this is pretty normal with all Verizon android phones now with the exception of the new Galaxy Nexus coming out. Supposedly, the G-Nex only has 2 Verizon apps that would be considered bloatware. With the Nexus being a Pure Google phone, Google regulates OTA updates, rather than Motorola, HTC, or Samsung. With Google being in control of the device, bloatware isn't really a concern.

    Yes, bloatware is there, but aren't some/most of them just icons and you have to download/install the actual programs manually?

    Nope, these are preinstalled apps that cannot be removed with rooting the device

    Some you can delete, some you can't. No big deal. Put them on a home page out of the way. Like page 66.:)

    I think I read somewhere it had around 25 bloatware apps which is insane. Thats one reason I am getting the Galaxy Nexus. No bloatware besides those 2 apps. One is My Verizon which I actually use and I will just root and remove the other if it can't be uninstalled.

    With Ice Cream Sandwich, which is on the Nexus, I thought I read that you can disable apps. I'm curious to read how thoroughly that feature works on the Nexus and all phones that will have ICS stock.

    When the RAZR gets ICS, will they really allow all of that bloat to be disabled???

    I am going to go with probably not. They will probably limit it or disable the feature.
