1. Android Central Question's Avatar
    I have a situation where in the past I have downloaded and used TextNow. Since I've stopped using it, I have uninstalled it from my phone. However, it is re-installing itself on my phone every time my phone dies and turns back on.

    My auto-app update was turned on the entire time but again, the app itself was uninstalled and every time it installs itself when my phone turns back on, I uninstall it.

    How is it possible that this app is re-installing itself even though it's been uninstalled?

    Thanks.

    Welcome to Android Central! Did you install it from the Play Store, or from somewhere else?

    As a side note, don't let your phone die. It really will make the battery useless.
