Could we PLEASE just get Sprint to stop forcing the stupid apps on us in the firmware image, like Nascar, NFL, Sprintzone, and stuff???

I am also trying to think of ANYTHING that is less interesting to me than Nascar.... hmm... I also wonder how much of my bill goes to pay Nascar/NFL/etc for this stupid stuff I don't want!

How about let customers PAY for what silly sports-related stuff they want to have so other customers that could care less don't have to subsidize it.

As a Sprint customer, I'll gladly continue paying my lower monthly bill in exchange for ignoring the apps that they are "forcing" on me. It's not really that tough to do. I guess some people aren't happy unless they are complaining about something.

Perhaps some of us would like to pay a lower bill AND have no apps forced on us that cost the carrier money (NASCAR and NFL licensing is not cheap).

As for "ignoring" such apps, many of the Sprint apps come to life automatically and "do" things that eat up data, cpu, and post annoying crap on the screen. Sprint Zone is a perfect example.

Or perhaps some of us like the sprint id (although i dont care for nascar id) *i actually enjoy switching between samsung/tw, my,clean, and sprint ids quickly

You are not forced to use it. You are not forced to download any ids at all.

And then usually lose the ability to have easy updates without totally wiping your device each time. And possibly throw away support and warranty. It isn't quite that cut-and-dry.

True. But on the Evo, and similar phones, you don't have a choice. The Sprint Zone, Nascar, etc are all inside the ROM. So it would be nice if it were optional when moving to the Sprint ID stuff, I somehow doubt they pulled out Sprint Zone and made that optional...

eh all the naysayers... the top NASCAR circuit is called the NASCAR Sprint Cup. SPRINT. they do this b/c THEYRE THE FUCKING SINGLE LARGEST SPONSOR IN THE ENTIRE SPORT.

also, sprint = lots of old nextel customers.
NASCAR fans = blue collar = millions used nextel
it's the perfect match.

my dad uses sprint for 2 reasons and 2 reasons only:
the price is great and he wants the nascar apps.

to the idiots claiming Sprint is paying NASCAR for "licensing"... huh?? they're the top sponsor, they get virtually unlimited access to all of NASCARS' IPs and easily struck deals with speedtv and MRN/PRN to stream video/audio of the races.
