    Default How to Disable non disable bloatware

    Ok Thank YOU SAMSUNG (yes i did say that !!!!)
    Vodafone other then locking your phone down have put a app called updates
    according to Vodafone its to keep there apps up to date
    Ummmmm now this is the permissions
    How to Disable non disable bloatware-permissions.png
    why a Update app needs these is beyond me
    now some how they have also removed the ability to disable the app its grayed out in the App manager
    But panic Not
    Now this also applies to all network branded junk that you want to disable
    Here is the Good bit and its a Touchwiz good bit
    so here is how
    First open the App Draw
    then press the Menu Button and pic Hide apps and pic the app so it hides the app
    Then un hide the app
    Yes i no that is strange but trust me
    Now press menu again and select Uninstal/dissable select the app and click disable
    BINGO
    take that Networks oh and as this is touchwiz Networks can not do anything to it
    and Samsung told me about this shame it does not un-install that app altogether
    I'm sure Networks brake Androids terms and conditions some were

    I've found if you go to your apps menu press and hold on app, some apps give you a "disable app" option at top of screen. Doesn't work with all apps, but a lot of them is does.

    That is true for all of the stuff you will find in the settings/......../applications manager/ALL

    Press, hold down, release...... Uninstall/Disable is there.
