    For situations where you want to completely remove an app that came default with the phone, I found this method without rooting or special software.

    Tested on Android 4.1 1 (jelly bean)

    1. Go to preferences > application manager
    2. I wanted to remove "nfl mobile", so I went All and found nfl.
    3. Cleared it's cache, force stop, and disable
    4. Once done, nfl did not show up in application manager or the Apps button

    I think the only way to restore it would be to do a factory reset. So be careful and make sure you never plan to use that app.

    Let me know what you guys think or find.

    This method only hides the app - it doesn't remove it.

    Be nice to get rid of the crap like Bell tv pvr since I am not a bell customer for any reason! my cell came with several programs I will not use including a web browser no use for it on a cell phone just a cash grab!.

    these phones should come empty and the users should be allowed to add the apps they require not what the phone company feels we need! they usually fill these phones with garbage that is 99% clutter and useless to most users.

    This has been true for most Android phones for a while now.

    OK, it still takes up the precious "disk" space, but not the memory anymore, I suppose.

    So what's the difference between this way of disabling an app, and using e.g. Root App Delete Uninstaller (to disable, not uninstall it)?
