    So naturally with all new phones the carriers LOVE to bloat the hell out of it which can increase ram usage and reduce battery life. Anybody have a list of apps they disable or maybe critical ones that are useless and should be disabled immediately?

    You can pretty much safely disable all of the AT&T premium services apps. Uninstall the updates back to factory install, clear data/cache, and then "turn off" in the App Manager menu.

    Things like:
    AT&T Family Map, AT&T Locker, AT&T Navigator, AT&T Messages, Caller Name ID, Isis Wallet, Mobile TV.

    Anything with AT&T in the title, except for perhaps My AT&T, which is handy for checking your account plan, usage, bill, etc. In addition to the 4 AT&T apps mentioned above, that would include AT&T Hot Spots, AT&T Live, AT&T Mail, AT&T Mobile Locate, AT&T Ready2Go, and AT&T Smart Wi-Fi. In addition, I would also go into Settings > Connections > Wi-Fi and then select Advanced from the menu and uncheck Auto connect. That will keep your Note 4 from automatically connecting to AT&T wifi every time you're near an AT&T hotspot.

    Search "bloatware" here and on XDA. There are lists and they will keep growing.

    Yea I turned off all the att and app stuff. The question is the obscure services like the com stuff. I remember turning off one service I thought i didn't need and phone would error out everytime I rebooted it. Something to do with s-pen.
