    I don't know that I would refer to it as "useless Sprint crapware", but I would like to be able to get rid of NASCAR as I have no interest in using that app.

    Personally i love the nascar app. but i do agree if u have no interest in that sport u shouldnt have to have it on your 300$ phone, other phones from sprint will let you install and uninstall that app. i wonder if when the nfl mobile app is ready it will be a mandatory dload?

    Nascar probably has a deal with sprint to have that app on the Pre. If it bothers you that much just root ur Pre and remove it (That's what I did)

    I don't follow nascar but I did open the application up and was pleasantly surprised with how robust it is. they did a nice job with it so it's really unfortunate that I wont use it.

    I clicked the delete option in the poll, but there's a caveat: I'd like to be able to go to a "defaults applications" section on the App store to be able to re-install if necessary.

    I would LOVE to delete this useless app! I am excited however to see how the NFL app looks on the Pre.

    Because it's boring as sin and they always preempt The Simpsons when a race is on

    This works and it works well! If you follow the instructions, it's not terribly difficult, and gives you your first taste in "hacking" the Pre. Certainly made me comfortable for some later, bigger adventures.

    I paid good money for this device. I own it. I do not want there to be any apps I can't remove, whether they're NASCAR, "Sprint TV" (whatever that is), YouTube, Pandora, or anything else. It's my phone, not Sprint's.

    I'll root it, if that's what it takes to free up the space being wasted by the various apps I don't want or need. But that's no reason not to complain about this - I'm certainly not going to sit down, shut up, and take it meekly. You seem to think "complaining" means it's not justified.

    Hint for you: It is quite justified. And I can root my Pre and still complain. Sprint won't listen to people who don't speak up.

    i agree !!! i hate that stupid nascar app!!! i don't understand why we cant get rid of it!

    If deleting is not allowed, make it useful. Keep the 'track my driver' stuff but add an accelerometer based driving game or something like that. Surely NASCAR can afford to give us something more...

    I agree. Let me delete that crap. When I got my phone, it was one of the first things I tried to do.
