WTH Verizon why can't you just stop adding crap to the phones that people don't want! If i wanted all these crappy apps i would download them instead your going to ruin the customers experience by a slow, bloated phone that takes for ever to update! These manufacturers need to start stepping up and telling Verizon that if your putting on carrier apps they CANNOT be built into the OS and they have to be removeable by the consumer.

As long as its removable I do not care. There is nothing worse than having bloatware you cannot remove without rooting it. They should keep their software to themselves.

True but knowing Verizon they won't be and thats what really ticks me off.

You cannot uninstall the bloatware apps. But you can disable any of them quite easily. I'm playing on a Samsung Galaxy Stellar that comes with all the Amazon bloat pre-installed.

I'm glad you can disable them but they should be removeable per the customers discretion. This is the major reason why we need to have LTE phones that are unlocked so we can control what devices we use and what apps we downloand. What version of Android is on the Stellar?
