    When are they going to stop including useless apps like BlockBuster on our phones? There is so much junk that I don't use that came with the phone. Now Blockbuster wants to update, and I'm hesitant to allow it.

    I have 5 that constantly want to update and pre-installed junk is a hassle... Its one of the reasons I was on a 4s for a while... Even if they wanna include it, they should allow it to be taken off by phone owner...

    ICS, if we ever get it, will resolve this to a point. ICS will allow you to "disable" an app. This prevents the app from running on boot, showing in the update list and showing in the apps drawer. Works wonderfully on my Acer.
