    Can you uninstall the bloatware off of the SIII?

    ATTNav
    MyATT

    and so on? Without root access. Thanks!

    Don't think so. But myATT is good to be able to view account info.

    Yea, I definitely want to remove MyNav. New to Android, so not keen on rooting on day 2 of ownership.

    Best i have been able to do is disable those apps, then they do not show up. I just force stop, and disable in the app manager and they seem to go by by,

    Newtoandroid.. how do you 'force stop' and disable them in app manager? Am going to be getting mine soon, so I'll want to do this as well. You don't seem to be so 'new to android', either, LOL

    I'm a TOTAL noobie having had a dumb iP3G for the past 3 years!

    All you have to do is go to settings and choose application manager and find the app ,click on it then hit force stop then disable and you will no longer see it.

    I got my first android a month ago it was a one x and now I'm rocking the Sg3, first days on the one x were different from my I4s, but after that I learned the basics

    Aside from disabling them, you can hide them in the apps list. when scrolling through your apps, just hit menu and then "Hide applications". Love hiding the bloat.

    Some you can delete some you cannot unless you root and use titanium backup to freeze or remove. The hide app that guinnkevinr is talking about works well and is a fairly new thing. I

    The good news is that this phone came with minimal bloat compared to models in the past!

    Which ones would you all consider useless and should be disabled? So far I just disabled MyNav.

    Just remember, in order to receive at&t ota updates for say (Jellybean), that bloatware needs to be present.

    Not an expert on at&t Android updates, so if I am wrong, please let me know.
