I want to put the Sprint NAV on my Nexus S when I get it today but in these instructions I keep seeing put this and that on the SD card. I thought the Nexus S 4G didn't have a SD card. Is that the same thing as a folder on the phone labeled SD card?

For the life of me I can't understand.
With a "normal" Sprint phone people cry and whine about all the Sprint bloatware, and they actively seek a root exploit to get rid of it. Now that we got the Nexus - no Sprint bloatware - some can't wait to load the bloatware back on the phone?...
It's more of a preemptive strike towards keeping the threads clean

If the problem were with our phone, when you launch the app it would say something like "This service is for Sprint customers only"
Annnnnnd it's back up and working. I definitely need to a find a version better suited to our screens though.
EDIT - Let me re-phrase that, someone needs to find a version better suited for our screens lol. I personally do use this app and only created this post so people had the option. I'd suggest someone grab a Sprint TV version from the epic and see how that works out. If it's good, post a link and I'll update the OP

Thanks, will update the OP when I get home. Anyone try the blockbuster app yet? Our ro.cdma.carrier.alpha is sprint in the build.prop and that's typically how sprint locks their apps to only sprint phones. If the BB app was exclusive to the EVO it may also be locked to the device but I doubt it. Try it and let me know and send a link and I'll update the OP with that too.

Bottom line, thanks to our mod KSmithInNY, for testing out and verifying this for our members.
To the members asking about this, are you nutz??? You buy Pure Google then want the Sprint apps back... LOL... Thats cool... Just joking around.... I'm jealous, you got a Nexus, I have my Epic 4g.

If you are a NASCAR fan, the Sprint app is actually pretty great. I'm not a big enough fan to use the app, but I have friends who use it all the time during races. I am a little tempted by Sprint TV, I did use it a few times before, and we are basically paying for it, but I think I'm gonna pass on all the sprint stuff. I would use visual voicemail if I could, but I'm getting used to Google Voice now, so its all good.
