    anyone get a bing icon on their home screen?
    just looked at my home screen and a bing icon which ive never seen before was there....wonder if this has something to do with bing being the only search provider issue they had earlier....ms trying to replace google? think its a little to late for that imho...google practically replaced the word "web search" in my vocab

    I haven't had it show up on my phone yet. When did it happen for you guys? After syncing or updating? Or did it just show up?

    It is pushed by vz. It can't be deleted. Its just a launcher icon and takes up no memory unless you install it. As another poster suggested, if you don't want to use it out it in a folder and hide it.

    Vz should do a better job to let people know what it is though. It is not a search engine. Its to find local eateries and theaters and such.

    It just showed up on me. I didn't install anything today. This is kinda scay that they can add to your phone without you even knowing.

    I agree. People start griping about it before they even know what it is. And yes I get the whole "they shouldn't push things to my phone without asking" but it seems like people should at least figure out what it does before the comlaints start.

    Yeah I had that pop up on mine as well. Thought that was kinda weird since I never use Bing. Google also replaced "web search" in my vocabulary as well lol. I'll had that one as well. Lol.

    I heard this too, and I'm happy to report that my default search engine in my browser is still Google.

    My "Verizon Crap" folder is labeled "Un-Used Apps" and it was formerly "US Cellular Crap".

    Nothing here...Of all you guys who had it pop up, are any of you running a leaked OS? I'm running 5.0.0.230 and haven't gotten anything.
