Verizon loads a lot of crap on the Storm 2 trying to get you to spend money. The only App that I am paying for is City ID as I get calls from all over the country in my job and I can tell quite often which plant is calling me from the City ID. It is worth the couple of dollars a month it costs.
We will spend our old age surrounded by idiots following government rules.
