    Default LG G2: Disabling AT&T Address Book

    I've read some stuff online and I still can't get this crap to stop popping open when I use Contacts. My phone is rooted and I deleted the Address Book .apk and it STILL shows up. Disabling the app is also not available.

    Any other ideas?

    I use ROM Toolbox to manage apps. You can easily delete or freeze system apps.

    Any idea how to disable or delete Google Voice Typing? I've searched this online and it seems to have been a MAJOR annoyance, but can't find an actual solution to get it from continually turning itself back on.

    In settings go to language and input method, then uncheck Google voice typing.

    It will stay off for a while, then just turn itself right back on (the box is re-checked and everything). Apparently this was/is a flaw. Cannot find a way to get it to stop and there doesn't seem to be a way to just disable the "voice" part of the keyboard.

    That's weird. I turned it off and it hasn't enabled itself.

    Here was my mistake. In the list of keyboards and input devices, there is one called Google voice typing. That is the one I was unselecting but it was just turning itself back on. What I needed to do was go into the settings for the keyboard I am using and turn off the voice typing key. Problem solved.

    Why does that fix it? What does this do?

    People shouldn't just blindly key things in.

    Apps, in my understanding (since I've only had my first smartphone for less than two weeks), will keep reinstalling because of the files in /system/app/ called PreloadInstaller.odex and PreloadInstaller.apk. I used the free app called ES File Explorer to move these two files to my external SD card on my newly bought year old Samsung S4. It wasn't entirely an intuitive process, but I finally got ES File Explorer to do it. xda developer forum is a super place to learn. Explore and lurk for answers though before you ask an already asked question. Hope this helps. Android definitely has its learning curve.

    To disable AT&T Address Book, I cleared data and when it started up again, I declined the terms of service. Seems to have worked, even after rebooting. I click on Contacts and they open without the AT&T app rearing its ugly head.

    Wow! No ****! This really worked and was super simple. Thank you so much. I was on the phone with an atnt rep trying all sorts of stuff to no avail and they recommended I call my phone for warranty to get a new phone. Yeah, didn't work. They suggested something silly like going to play store and getting a new address book. . .not what I asked for. I'm so thankful. Thank you!

    Thank you Dee Lee. I have an LG G3 and this was driving me crazy. I spent 40 minutes with ATT, then Straight Talk and nobody could help me. Your solution worked!

    Thumbs up Re: LG G2: Disabling AT&T Address Book

    That code Dee Lee gave us with all the *# and 6's really worked for me too! Wow--the fastest answer I ever got--I had even call ed the store I bought it from last week (Optimus PRO G) and they were like suggesting I downloaded a bad app--I said these apps were on here when you turned on my phone....SOOO thankful I didn't have to drive to the store for a run around on a phone I have just invested several hours on getting things straight! I was worried about getting rid of the AT&T address book and losing all of my contact info--but they were still there
