Wonder how much crap-ware they added that made it so it can't update OTA. Since the Sprint version got an OTA.

Usually if you remove and not freeze the bloat is where the OTA has issues with. At least AT&T allows you to freeze the bloat, not sure about Sprint. Friend of mine with a VZW SGS III couldn't even freeze the junk they put on the phone, I I have no bitch they put this junk on the phone, (only tried for a few minutes so admit could be wrong on this) I do have a bitch (outside of rooting) that it can't be removed.

I remembered back in the Windows Mobile days, the bloat was there, but could be removed with a simple uninstall. And any WWE of HTC's roms can be installed, and minor modifications for keyboards, and sometimes but not always the radios. Did it with the 8525 & Tilt2 without problems.

Think with Sprint you get the update with the bloatware regardless on if you go to a store or do it OTA. I don't understand why it isn't simple to remove the crap they force in the updates.

There is no bloat really on the Sprint version, and the apps that are there can be un installed.

Ah I guess they've gotten better about it then.
