Verizon was bad enough but at least I knew going in that I would have My Verizon. I am getting real sick of UNREMOVEABLE crap ware or features, some just showing up on my phone. One day it's Kindle, now it's Places. I keep waking up to new junk or built in ahem...features that I don't want and can't remove. Let see - this is what I can't remove so far: Amazon MP3 - Don't play music on phone, don't need it Blockbuster - Same - have a 55" TV for that City ID - What useless junk and they actually want you to pay Corporate Directory - - Ain't a corporation, don't need two contact lists Kindle - Want me to read a book on a phone, send me a battery Latitude - Ah - Not No, hell no Places - - At least I can remove Yelp Skpe Don't care - give me front camera I might be interested Social networking- Antisocial Mom taught me to mind my own business ! Yeah I know I can root but I don't want to be an Android guru. I just want to use the phone to make calls and use the Apps that I want vs what Google or Verizon thinks is the greatest thing since milk. Jeez - people complain about Jobs having to much control with Apple, this isn't that much different. I feel better but I hope Google and Verizon can YOU HEAR ME NOW. Let us remove this useless junk.
