Controlling my apps

Why is it that Verizon puts apps on our phones that we do not want and cannot delete?  Are our astronomical bills not high enough to appease the Street?  I will never watch a Blockbuster movie.  I will never use Slacker Radio.  I will never use NFL Mobile.  Why is it that Verizon will not allow me to delete these unwanted apps from my phone?  I want a nice, clean selection of apps that are useful to me.  I don't want to sift through an app garbage dump.

Hey, Verizon, we pay enough for our phones and service.  My phone is not a billboard.  Let us determine what is going to be on them.  Your profitability will still be fine.

Thank you.

This has been discussed many times before. It hasn't changed. You will get the same responses.

I'm most definitely NOT a VZW employee. If a post answered your question, please mark it as the answer.

the cool thing about these apps IS YOU DONT HAVE TO USE THEM. If you want to remove them there are ways

I hate watching commercials on tv.

Anyway you can change the way your app draw looks, you can set it by most used apps etc

I would have to edit your post to say it is still not fixed, it is still NOT a problem.  Other than a few extra apps in your app drawer (and on ICS phones, you can hide these), they don't change the user experience in any way.
