    Seeing as how they are one of the US's largest mobile carriers they have to make sure everything works fine. Although I do agree that it is ridiculous how slow carriers can be, Verizon is way worse with updates.

    If you want to remove it just disable it under settings-applications click on what you want and you can hit diable on most. That is the closest to uninstalling without root permissions.

    To be honest Verizon is typically the LAST to update anything AT&T did pretty well on the GS4 and I suspect the GN3 will be along shortly. If I recall Samsung had to go back and fix some things they broke with 3rd party accessories. Still it will be along and so far the carriers (except Verizon) have done pretty well on the 4.4.2 update compared to prior releases.

    Thanks, but I knew that, I was just making a point that its crappy that they force it on you. I bit the bullet earlier and rooted again, just to install the FireNote Rom and got rid of all that crap! LOL Feel much better now!

    That is one thing Windows Phone has over Android. You can delete all of at&t's useless bloatware.

    I have to say that Verizon is the worse when it come to updates, but the best (my area) when it comes to reception. I think Verizon looks at it like...."take your time and get it right", which isn't a bad thing

    With Android you can root to get rid of it.. It is an extra step but not that bad.

    I think that my own interest in updates is waning. I really don't care now when I get updates because I just became jaded in waiting for them. I used to be one of those who would see that the updated was officially being pushed to phones and I would check incessantly throughout the day until I got it. The update would come like a week later. No more of that. When it comes, it comes. I will deal. As far as the bloatware, I am starting to have a similar attitude. If I don't care anymore. The carriers aren't going to stop putting bloatware on phones and they aren't going to allow us to delete it, because they want us to think about using them. If I don't want to use the bloatware, I will simply disable them or just not use them. Not going to worry about it anymore.
