    Has anyone noticed that apps are being downloaded to their note 7 without actually downloading it yourself? Lol I've had 4 games and 2 apps just now lol. I'm sure it's my carrier (Verizon) or samsung doing this right?

    It's certainly Verizon. I'm fairly positive that's got to be against FCC rules somehow.

    What a terrible carrier. If their security is compromised they've pretty much placed a backdoor on this device for everyone on their network.

    True. Don't get me wrong i like 2 of the games that came but i would like a pop up at least asking for permission. Is this what people call bloatware?

    Whatever the source of your download is try changing any settings they have in there regarding "auto-download" to "never."

    I've had Verizon for almost three years now and I've never had it do that. Very odd!

    I have a Verizon Note 7 and didn't have DTIgnite installed or any of the usual bloat ware. All of the Android phones I've had recently on Big Red have always had a ton of stuff to disable but not this time. I thought they had turned over a new leaf...sounds like I just got lucky. No auto downloads either. Had the phone since launch day.

    You have to go download them yourself from the Google Play store. You can find a list of the games by searching for terms like Note7 and Vulkan games. There is also a thread about it on this board.

    You're Note 7 came preloaded with DTIgnite you just don't know it because they hide it from you. When in the app manager click on the three dots in the top right corner, and choose to show system apps. You'll find it listed there.

    Are you all sure? Seems odd for Verizon to roll out firmware and not be uniform with it. To see it in app manager, I think you have to go to the three dots in top right corner and enable to see system apps. If you do not have the bloat- super good for you!
