    Default Stupid Kitkat changes help

    I had a unlocked X, broke it just got another thru insurance buts it's an AT&T version now, and it updated to kitkat which I didn't want.

    The AT&T sign is permanent in the top left corner, there's no way to get rid of that

    And now there's a lockscreen when i click the power button on I don't want anyway to change that?

    Stupid kitkat

    To turn off the lockscreen, go to Settings>Security>Screen lock, and change it to None. And hope no one ever "borrows" your phone.

    Oh thanks I just figured it was kitkat cause my old Moto X on 4.1 never had a lock screen or the att in the top left corner but yeah that's because of the carrier brand phone I have now

    Are you sure it isn't some AT&T app that got installed with the update, like "My AT&T" or something like that? You know, to help you monitor your data usage, and check your bill, etc.

    So are you saying it's not normal for an att Moto X to have the att letters always on the status bar at all times?

    I can't really say for sure, since I don't have an X on AT&T. But I'm not aware of any cell provider routinely plastering its name or logo on the Nofitication Bar unless it has to do with some kind of app. I suggest looking through all of your apps in the App Drawer or in the Settings>Apps>All menu, and looking for some kind of proprietary AT&T app.

    Hm I just went thru all the apps that were related to att and disabled and forced stopped most of them I didn't see anything that would have anything to do with the status bar att logo there. I'll have to ask someone with an att Moto X maybe everyone has it

    I am still on 4.2.2. That may be a difference.

    Outside of the branding - what exactly in KitKat don't you want? Honestly everything in KitKat was a good upgrade and my phone works MUCH better post-update.

    It just seems like you may not really understand what the changes were. Lower memory consumption, more broad use of GPU rendering, real SMS client support, printing support, much better full-screen, the new file picker, tap and pay integration, audio streaming for longer playback, etc etc.

    I have read in the Motorola forums (sub forum Moto X), about people mad about AT&T logo in the notification bar as well. I'm glad Vzw doesn't do that

    I don't like how they made the status bar icons all white that's stupid and I have noticed more lag on this phone than my last one, all same apps and all but who knows could just be something else

    I wonder if this was due to complaints that notifications in certain colors were too hard to read. That certainly was the case for me back with Ice Cream Sandwich, when notification bar icons were in a muted blue color--very difficult to see when in a bright area.
