    I have tried what i have read to uninstall apps but these that are factory installed do not give option to uninstall? They are always running, App Finder & 1weather, my phone is the "free Govt. phone with Safelink wireless. Such a waste regardless of who pays for it. I go in & "force stop" but only last until the phone is used & they start back on? I must do this 20x a day! Somebody Please help!!

    Most pre-installed apps cannot be uninstalled unless you root the phone, which is a little complicated and may require bootloader unlocking first. Why do you want to uninstall the apps? If for more free space, then you may have to get root access. If you just don't want them to run and lag your phone, you could use "app freezer" apps to disable the stock apps. Just find one on Google Play.
