As of today T-Mobile got the KK update, and here we are.  I RAN from Sprint as soon as I could and they were the first to get the KK update for this device.  Still glad I switched even if we will be the last to get the update.

Well then leave. They are paying your ETF. So no excuses.

I have read that Sprint customers are having some issues with the KK update!  I have only read so far of about 6 customers so I would guess there are more.  they have also been having issues with KK update on phones in Europe.  So user beware with your updates if we ever get them from VZW.

As always Verizon... you missed the point.  But I have come to expect this from you.

As japetty said, disabling them still leaves them there taking up valuable real estate in the phones memory.

We don't WANT your apps.  We WANT to be able to delete them from the phone.  No app should be hardwired into the system memory. 

We don't want:

Amazon

Amazon MP3

Audible

IMDB

Trip Advisor

Verizon Cloud

Verizon Tones

Verzion Voicemail

VZ Navigator

The only app out of the bunch installed on my phone that I find useful is NFL Mobile.  I even pay the $5 a month to live stream games during the season.

When we bought phones at subsidized pricing and spent two years in contract it was permissible (maybe) to pre-install apps on our phones.  However, now that in most cases we pay the full cost of the handset via either Device Purchase Plan or Edge, this practice needs to stop and STOP NOW!

You no longer need an alternate source of revenue.

You don't get to decide if Verizon wants or needs an alternate source of revenue or not. And if you ran a company you WOULD take an alternate source of revenue. Maybe Verizon should have a feature where for $50 more you can delete the apps. I'm 100% sure that would just tick people of more even though they are getting what they want.

Also posting STOP NOW in bold letters is not going to get Verizon to stop especially on a CUSTOMER to CUSTOMER forum. You know your fellow customers who have ZERO say so in Verizon polices. You're basically screaming at people like me who can't do a darn thing to change Verizon polices to what you want. And frankly I don't appreciate being yelled at for things that are not my fault.

I was at Best Buy today, stopped in to see the Samsung Rep about Polaris 5 not syncing thru cloud service (nope it really doesn't)

He put Kit Kat on my phone.

Runs fast and no extra battery drain noticed.

Downloaded  Another App and put Polaris in the Bloatware heap.

Sirguy all it's seems you want to do is belittle people.

I do realize this is a user to user forum, but from time to time Verizon does poke their nose in here.  my reply was to a Verizon Customer Service agent.

Since Verizon does poke their nose in here from time to time, all I'm doing is making sure they are aware customers are not happy with the status quo.

Verizon makes billions in profit every quarter.  This past quarter they made a 5 billion dollar profit. 

They don't need an alternate source of revenue.
