    You would have to root your phone and use Titanium Backup to delete the apps.

    I am a developer for HTC devices. If you ever need help with one, let me know.

    App Drawer >> Menu Button >> Hide Apps

    (OR)

    Pull down Notification panel >> Settings (top right corner) >> More (4th tab) >> Application Manager >> All (slide towards xtreme right) >> Select App >> Disable it


    P.S You can disable all of them but cannot remove them.

    You need to flash a clean TW ROM by rooting (or)
    root it and uninstall all those apps with help of apps like titanium

    That's good ol' Bell and their Bloatware! Switch to Telus! They only put like 2 apps on the phones and you can uninstall them without being rooted.
    THAT is the way it should be.

    No, it's a Bell phone, it's Bloatware. If you reset it to Factory, you reset all the apps that came factory as well.

    Hey there, sorry to revive an old thread, but I have a question or 2. Similar to the OP, I want to factory restore my S5, but if you think Bell is bad, you should see the crap I have on here from Rogers.

    So you folks are saying that there is no way to wipe and restore the O/S without putting the Rogers nonsense on it? You have to do it then root and remove the apps? I always have believed it's much better to have never had the **whatever** than to have had it and removed it.

    If this in indeed the case, can someone point me toward some instructions, on rooting and then the software to remove all these apps?

    Thanks in advance for any help y'all can provide.
