You have to have unlocked your bootloader, and rooted (S-Off helps too) to remove system files (which the Sprint bloatware are). Your best bet is to use a custom ROM that has already removed them.

This is what I did:

1. Unlock Bootloader
2. Root
3. Open Sprint ID
4. Manage ID's
5. Delete the default Sprint one.
6. Freeze all Sprint apps

That seems to make that dumb app stay quiet. Also I'm stock rooted on the OTA.
