    You didn't answer anything by posting that video I was asking if anyone used bing not if you can remove it or not.

    I have no experience with Bing but I can tell you that you can just hide the searchbar and download Google applications(Google Maps, Sky Map, Places and so on) and make it your default. If you root the phone im sure you can completely remove it.

    Unless things are differnet the one thing you can not do is make it to where when you hit the search button it will go to anything but Bing. I know that is what happened with the backflip when it came out on AT&T and got so much hate for it.

    Well this would be a disaster if true. This is exactly what folks who are not worried bout Bing being on this say you CAN do - set default search, maps, etc. Setting a default search would mean the default search button action. I guess we will have to see..

    I have tried Bing on my phone. I find the search engine to be great. The navigation-map part was very poor. It could never get a GPS satellite lock on my position. Google, OTOH, found me quickly. When I switched to "Earth" view and zoomed in I was able to see my house and the deck on which I was standing. Creepy!

    What would be creepy is if you could look up, wave, and see yourself on google maps.:eek:
