Hey ATT... Why you force bloatware on me?
I would really love an answer to a valid question. Why do you (ATT) force this bloatware on us? I can see putting that crap on my phone from factory, a la Microshaft. But why do you require us to go to the extreme length of rooting our phones, thus violating your usage terms? I bought this phone and I alone should decide which apps I would like to install. It is why I changed to Android in the first place. I suppose I should have done more thorough research. Short of a solution from you (ATT), I eventually will root my phone so that I can decide what is on it. You would do much better with the more tech savvy client, if you just made quality apps and allowed the market to decide. Alas, it is YOU that is forcing my hand into rooting. I am patiently waiting a more stable ROM and then off to rootville. An ATT store rep told me today that there is indeed a way to remove these bloatware apps. He was told or shown at a training seminar, but stopped short of showing me. It can apparantly be done though, and I am hoping someone on here will show the way. Even though I love this phone, I would prefer a jailbroken iPhone to it.
