"Hello? "locked" with Bing? Do you even own this phone??"5.0 starson by skim23
Pros: This is by far the best Android phone ever. period.
Cons: Basically Verizon wast clear enough regarding this Bing thing and stupid people are over-exaggerating how they feel "raped" because they are "forced" to use Bing-everything or verizon navigation. NOT TRUE
Summary: Bing Bing Bing. Stop crying people and stop speading wrong information. Yes, Bing is the default search engine. NO, you are NOT FORCED to use it. If you actually have this phone and care to tweak things a bit, you can go Google-everything. I got this phone yesterday and first thing I did, sent Bing-everything to trash. Yes I know it's still there but at least you don't see it on your phone. Now you just need to download google map, navigation, etc and put the icons on your home screen. This phone also comes preloaded with "voice search", which you will find on your apps page. You also put that icon on your home if you'd like. You click it once, it says "speak now: google search" and it will go directly to google. I don't know why people are spreading craps like search will be redirected to Bing! If you don't like voice search then you set google.com as your browser home. is it that difficult? I click my map or navigation and they are google too. I just came back from a restaurant 20 minutes away from my house using the google nav and it worked great! Seriously, if you don't have this phone and you've been just reading crap on internet do not rate this phone. It's just a search engine people. and it's MODIFIABLE
