    If they are so worried about voiding warranties then why not make them unlockable by a website or something? That way they can make sure you know its voided and they will know it's voided as well? I'm sure people would go around this but I'm sure lots of people wouldn't even bother trying and just use the official way

    The one thing I'm really concerned with is this trend towards unremovable batteries...what happens if you need to pull the battery cause it freezes and how do extended batteries work then?

    And to be honest, i think ICS sidestepped the issue. I think the way they did it was a weak way to do it. they shouldnt lock us out of anything. I should be able to screw up my phones OS if i want, my dream is for a warning that says your attempting to remove a system file and removing could have unwanted consequences, want to continue? thats it. No need to freeze, unfreeze, make it hidden. Just give me a warning the end. Complicating the issue.

    I love football. But I think the point everyone and myself are trying to make with the bloatware/crapware is that if I/we want the app(s) on my/our phones, we can install it ourselves from the Market. Or, they should give us the option to delete the app(s) from our phones. Thereby letting everyone have their own tastes and preferences and run their phone how it behooves them.

    Instead, they try to lock them into the ROM and basically force the apps down our throats. Thereby forcing us to hack our phones that we bought to remove the stuff we don't want/use/need so our phones are to our individual liking. (For instance, I have no use for the Social apps. I don't want them. I don't use them. If I change my mind, I can install them. Others love the Social apps and want to keep them. But for me, it's a waste of space and resources.

    I love football, but would rather not have the app on my phone as I don't use it. You want it on your phone. Baseball, on the other hand, I love more than football, and I have MLB At Bat app on my phone during the season. And I have an app to see all the scores of all the sports. So, for me particularly, I don't want/need the NFL app. It's a waste of space and resources on my phone that could be used for things more productive to my particular needs and preference.

    Yours will differ from mine. Therefore we are all wanting to truely make our phones OURS. My phone should be MINE. Your phone should be YOURS. No offense, but I don't want your phone. And you probably don't want mine. You'll look at mine and go, "Really?!!? What the hell?" Lol. I would probably do the same with your phone.
