/g/, why are US carriers so behind the goddamn times? Every phone I've ever owned has gotten its software updates no less than 18 months after it came out everywhere else. Is it a monetary thing, or are they all just running on antiquated tech?
>>
I can't answer that really, but are phones in the US really that seriously branded by the carriers?
>>
>>46201816
Yes. Half the reason people root their phones is to get rid of all the stupid shit, although that doesn't do anything about the fact that the carrier etches their name in to the fucking glass.
>>
>>46201875
Jesus, I didn't realise it was that bad. Some do the branding shit over here in the UK, but not as much.
>>
>>46202007
It's ironic that Verizon's latest exclusive phone doesn't have the Verizon branding.
>>
>>46202407
AND it doesn't have bloatware? They get their branding in one way or the other.
>>
>>46202444
Of course it has the Verizon bloat. Bloat can be removed (potentially, eventually)

An etching can't.

>>46202467
yeah but u can put tape over it, or sharpy

I'm going to play make believe that you never even thought that.

I hold it up using nothing but my throbbing, juicy [spoiler]finger[/spoiler]

because you're just renting it from them, even if you buy the phone outright you're still renting it.
