/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?
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.
