    Got an AT&T Note 3, love it so far. Not yet rooted, but would like to remove / disable carrier and Samsung bloatware apps and services. Is there a definitive list of safe to remove bloatware? I have not cleaned up any Samsung apps yet, but I've "turned off" the following AT&T bloatware apps:

    • AT&T Code Sanner
    • AT&T DriveMode
    • AT&T FamilyMap
    • AT&T Hot Spots
    • AT&T Locker
    • AT&T Messages
    • AT&T Navigator
    • AT&T Redy2Go
    • AT&T Smart WiFi


    Would like to have a cleaner Note 3. I realize that different carriers will have different junk apps. Appreciate any help / additions to this list...

    Thank you.

    I also found a good thread in another forum with a "community spreadsheet" of apps / services which can be removed / stopped:

    Just disabling things cause you can don't make sense to me, I like features which is why I bought a Smart Phone packed with them. What I don't like are the ones I don't use. Soo! Just listing things without explaining their function so I can make an informed choice isn't much help

    The point is he is not using them, why does it have to make sense to you, it's his/her phone, not yours?
