    Post Vodafone Section appearing in the Android Market

    Just opened the Android Market on my Nexus S (Sim-free UK model from Carphone Warehouse - but using a VodafoneUK sim) to update maps, and noticed that in the position where "My apps" usually appears, there is now a Vodafone icon, which links to a Vodafone specific section of the market. I know some US carriers have similar, but this is the first time I've seen this on a UK carrier.

    It's slightly annoying, as now I have to hit the menu key to get to my apps, which makes it an extra step... Yeah, lazy I know.

    The new market still has the Vodafone section instead of my Apps though...

    It must be detecting the network rather than the Vodafone sim, because I noticed it reverted to normal on a recent trip to Japan when I was mostly on the Softbank network.

    Some manufacturers do it too. The SE Arc i had before the 2X had a dedicated SE section. Don't think you can get rid tbh
