***Announcement: Early next week, we’ll be merging the current Fios and Wireless Communities into the all new Verizon Community! Beginning the evening of Sunday 12/4, both Communities will be placed in read-only mode. You’ll still be able to visit the Communities and browse content, but login will be disabled. On the afternoon of Monday 12/5, all users will be able to log into the new Verizon Community. We expect the new Community to be fully functional the morning of Friday 12/9. Additional details can be found in the Announcements board and under Featured Topics!
Removing bloatware

I normally buy unlocked androids just to avoid Verizon bloatware.  However last November at Costco I was told Verizon would unlock the device after 60 days so I paid for the device in full and prepared to count down the days till I was free again.  After 9 months Verizon says my phone is unlocked but I still can't choose Google Voice as my default phone app!  It is deceptive and disgusting that Verizon isn't honest that they MOSTLY unlock the phone. There is no excuse for not allowing vendor operating system to replace the Verizon bloated OS once unlocked.  No more excuses...  make it right and unlock the phone!

We certainly hear your concern, Walkerstv. We can help check the phone to be sure everything is unlocked. Can you confirm the IMEI of the phone?
