And Samsung. All Samsung unlocked phones that I've purchased here in India ( AFAIK there is no carrier locking in India, because there is no contract system. You buy your handset and then you take it to a carrier who gives you a SIM, no commitments ) . Coming back to my point, it's Samsung's doing. Facebook, Flipboard and even Google Chrome come in the factory image and cannot be deleted. I've tried various options and the only one seems to be moving to CyanogenMod.
