    In another thread, I read of some people disabling s-voice in Settings | applications mgr to improve battery life.

    1. If the app isn't running, is it not being disabled draining my battery?
    2. If so, what default apps should be disabled? (BTW, disabled items appear at the end of the list in 'all', so you can re-enable if you change your mind.

    Thanks,

    Mike

    Just so you know, disabling S-Voice also prevents you from making any changes to 'Language and Input' under Settings. In fact, trying to click on it will cause a FC, every time. Enjoy.

    Interesting. I tried every variation of installing, uninstalling s-voice and didn'tmatter what i did, if i disable s-voice via application manager, 'Language and input' would FC. Are you guys on stock rom and unrooted? Because i am completely stock.

    Well, that sucks for me. I must have something else that is doing the FC, but only when I disable S-Voice.

    I have also rooted and even with Titanium backup, if I freeze S Voice same thing. I can't figure out the issue. Guess I just have to leave s voice enables. Enabling or disabling any other app has no effect either.

    For the app in question, do you have an "Uninstall Updates" button? If so, tap it and uninstall the latest update. After it restores the original version of the app, you should have the Disable button back again.

    I guess I am an *****. Do I have to register and login before I can delete or disable these programs? I cant find any options to disable, delete or anything, but I have not logged in any since I dont want to use them.

    Thanks.

    I'm not sure what you're getting at. Register and log in to what? The apps? No, you don't have to log into the apps. But you can only disable the apps that came with the phone (system apps). Anything that you installed you can just uninstall.

    To disable an app that came with the phone, perform these steps:

    1. Pull down the notification bar and locate the little gear/sprocket icon in the top right corner. Tap it. The settings will open.
    2. Scroll down until you see Application Manager. Tap it. The application settings will open. Notice that at the top of the screen, there are three tabs: Downloaded, Running, and All. Tap All to view all the apps on the phone.
    3. Scroll down until you find a system app that you want to disable (like S-Voice, S-Memo, AT&T Navigator, etc.). Tap the name of the app and a settings window for that app will open.
    4. At the top of the settings page, you will see the name of the app and its icon. Immediately under that will be two buttons: Force Stop and Disable. If the app has been updated at all, the second button will instead be Uninstall Updates. If it says Disable, tap it to disable it. If the button is labeled Uninstall Updates, then tap it and uninstall the updates. After the app reverts, that second button should now be labeled Disable. Tap it to disable the app.


    For apps that you have installed, you can use this same method to uninstall them. Open the settings for the specific app and tap the Uninstall button.

    Hope that clears things up.

    Oh, and a word of warning: if you don't know what something is...DON'T disable or uninstall it.
