    Thinking of making the switch from iphone 4S 16GB.. are all of those REALLY apps that come preloaded on the phone? Aye Aye Aye....that's insane...re-learning Android might be a task and a half.

    You should post that on AT&T's section. But wow, that is insane. Interesting to see what comes on other carriers.

    Yeah, I go in on all my android gizmos and just start disabling uneeded stuff. This stuff might be useful to some but not I.

    Some of that bloatware was useful like paloris.

    VZW version of N3 came with quite a bit as well but it was nicely organized into folders. A Sammy folder, a VZW folder and a Google folder. With all the space and a micro card, I'll likely never need the space those apps are consuming and with a ton of RAM on the device, they aren't slowing me down by running in the background... yet.

    Absolutely thrilled with this device and network. Came from a GNex on Sprint. Night and day difference!

    I see it says turned off in his menu under application manager, how do you do the same with Verizon note 3, where in the settings.

    Well, not sure how different the Verizon version is but when you go to Application Manager and click the app there should be an option to "turn off" or "disable" the app.

    In Application Manager (use search, it's a lot easier than drilling down) be sure to scroll over to All tab.

    I've disabled ANT and it didn't affect anything I use on my Gear.

    ANT is for devices like fitness monitors, i.e... bracelets, scales, etc.

    Sorry if this is a dumb question but I am brand new to this forum and the Note 3..
    Switched from yrs of battling Itunes and Iphone 5 as my last iphone..
    By turning these apps off do they have to be turned back on to use, or are they just not running in the background all the time??
    I've certainly picked up some great info here..
    Loving the switch to Android..
    Thanks for any help..
