    When I installed the T-Mobile Tuesday app on my s20+ I clicked through a dialogue box for additional apps and missed unchecking the News Break app. The notifications are killing me. I have been unsuccessful at finding the app to get rid of it. When the notification pops up I even tried to turn off notifications but the app doesn't show up. This is insane. The absolute worse news app to start with and now I can't even find it to get rid of it. Can anyone help me?

    If you can't find it on the device, search for it Google Play and uninstall it from there. - https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...news.newsbreak It should, however, be under your Settings>Apps section

    It is not in Settings>Apps. I've looked several times...not there. I can't find it in my list of apps either. I tried the play store and the only option is to install, even though it is already installed as I am getting the notifications. I decided to select Install from the play store just now. I can now find it in my list of apps so I did the uninstall. Now I will see if it comes back. This has been one of the strangest app issues I've encountered.

    If it happens again, also try going to Settings>Apps, tap Menu, then Show System.

    Any chance you use Samsung daily? News break is one of the sources which can be displayed as Samsung daily card. You can try disabling there if you are using Samsung daily to see if that helps.

    I don't know what they were referring to either, but I have the News Break app and I just uninstalled it from the Galaxy store.

    I think it's related to this new AppSelector feature: https://www.t-mobile.com/support/pla...le-appselector

    I leave tmobile tuesday notifications on. I never got the News Break notifications before. I looked in the app anyway to see if it had anything about News Break and nothing. The notifications are back.

    Yes! It had the tmobile Tues which is all I wanted to install. One of the half dozen pages of apps had the News Break on it. I realized I still had it checked when I skipped forward and it installed. I thought I would get rid of it later but I couldn't find it. I just looked under settings again and found the AppSelector app but it doesn't have anything about News Break.

    News Break reviews are horrible. Apparently others are having issues with the amount of notifications.
