Did you allow it to install a Sprint ID? I think you need to in order to proceed. If you use the clean ID you won't get bloatware.

I guess a way around that would be to root with adb and then:
adb shell
su
mount -o remount,rw -t yaffs2 /dev/block/ mtdblock5 /system
rm /system/W_Installer.apk
reboot

You can learn about all of that here.
I quoted it because I can't find the code wrap command..

and i cant install a sprint id because for some stupid yet business smart reason you can only download sprint ids through sprint service , not wi-fi

Believe me, you are going to want to learn about adb and rooting anyways. Take a look at that link and get things running.

If you use the voice command button on the side you can say " Sprint ID". this will take you to the manager where you can select the lean cID that the phone comes with. This worked for me and the ID screen no longer shows up.
