    Default extra premium for zero bloatware?

    Question. Would you be willing to pay a premium price on a new phone to remove the bloatware? Maybe an extra $50 or $100? Tmobile isn't super bloat filled, but it would be nice to only download what you ACTUALLY use. Seems like a no brainer for android heads...but would it be worth it?

    Nope especially since it would more than likely be worth more to them to not do it that way.

    Those that are really annoyed can get rid of it, most consumers do not care.

    I've never been worried by this. I just simply root and get rid of stuff if it really bothers me but honestly... T-Mobile isn't that bad when it comes to bloat.

    Or, if you don't want to root, just disable the bloatware that you don't want. It won't free up any internal storage, but at least those apps won't be taking up any RAM by opening up automatically.

    "Not that bad?" They're frigging angels compared to the rest of the U.S. wireless industry. And they let you uninstall or disable all of it. My AT&T phones always had apps that they wouldn't even let you disable (AT&T Address Book comes to mine). Heck, they "bloated" in their WiFi SSID and made it so you can't remove it. Both of these things kind of suck when you're on an MVNO and don't get access to either one.

    or just get a nexus. Thankfully, we have plenty of options on android.
