    Have you tried to disable the app in the Applictions Manager?

    Yes, that's exactly what I just did and it worked! ...after rebooting my phone.

    Silly question.... Prior to the update, I was able to text without the sound or vibrate off the key pad, so why is it doing it the opposite this time, After update? My phone volume is set to vibrate for incoming calls. Normally, if I had my phone on vibrate or sound completely off I would be able to text "quietly" but now, whenever I press a button on my key pad it vibrates! :[

    I have been PLAGUED with this problem of not being able to remove the damn Samsung Hub from my lock screen ever since I updated to Android 4.3. (I have a Galaxy S4 on Verizon.)

    1.) The application cannot be uninstalled or removed or affected at all by going to the Application manager. All you can do there is "Force Stop," which of course is just a temporary thing. It can't be removed, there's no setting that can be changed or altered, nothing can be done to set a default differently so that it doesn't launch . . . nothing.

    2.) The widget itself cannot be removed from the lock screen. It does not allow you to long-press it and drag it to the garbage can, so that's not an option.

    3.) When you go into the Samsung Hub app itself, there is no setting that you can change to remove it from showing up on the Hub, or to prevent it from automatically launching.

    I'm out of ideas. Anyone got any??

    Thanks in advance!

    As per point number 1 above, the Samsung Hub cannot be disabled or affected in any way via the Application Manager. Perhaps this is unique to the Verizon version of the phone? I don't know. The option to "Force Stop" is grayed out, and cannot be pressed.

    Any other ideas?

    Try a launcher like Apex or Nova. Sure you will prefer to Touchwiz. Should be able to remove the widget from your homescreen.

    I was having exactly the same problem as you. What i did was similar to what the previous person said. Go to settings,more,application manager. Right under the words application manager it says downloaded.you can slide that to the left. you will see sd card, running, all, turned off. go to the "all". scroll down.you will see one that says samsung hub. Continue down you will also see one that says Samsung music. I selected that and hit force stop and clear data. then restarted my phone just for the hell of it and it worked.

    by the way my phone is galaxy s4 and my issue started when samsung did an update.

    I got rid of the samsung music app on my lockscreen but now my sd card (64GB) isnt being read by the system. Before i turned off Samsung music and Force stopped Samsung hub my sd card was working. Is it anyway to fix my problem or do i need to buy a whole new sd card??

    This "minor" change they made has almost driven me to root my phone. Absolutely aggravating!! I close it, and it comes back within 5 minutes.

    Believe it or not, after hours with several Samsung techs to help me remove this problem failed, I decided to try to remove it myself, again. It worked.

    Go to apps,
    Touch the music icon
    At the bottom left corner of your phone is the Menu button, press this and select DELETE
    Now you'll see on your top screen to the right ALL APPLICATIONS, SAMSUNG OVER THE HORIZON or other songs you've down loaded. Place a check mark on the SAMSUNG OVER THE HORIZON and then press the delete button on the upper right corner of your phone. It should solve this problem. Trust me, it was driving me nuts.
