Does any crap get put back on during an upgrade?
Does the damn thing have Bing? Useless search engine compared to google although the mobile map function actually works very well.
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.
A lot... I removed all the Sprint bloatware except for Sprint navigation and Sprint TV
I think there has been one software update but I can't do it because I am rooted
If you are rooted, you have to wait for an updated rooted ROM to be released with the new software patch included..
No to Bling...
I left Sprint navigation and Sprint TV on because they are both free to use and I actually use them... Sprint TV works great for LIVE ESPN and such.. I may however remove it as well since I have Slingbox and Sling player pimpin on it..
The apps do NOT come back once they are removed, as long as you stay rooted..
