    First post - first Samsung phone.

    Looks like AT&T removed the Smart Manager. Anyone know why?

    Is there anything else useful they removed vs. other carriers?

    I noticed that Smart Manager and One Drive (preloaded for 100GB free storage) was missing.

    I never got the benefit of download booster, to use wifi and network which will drain the battery and hit your data to me it didn't seem worth it.

    Download booster, OneNote and Device Manager seem to be the big ones. OneNote was yanked to push you to AT&T Locker and I'm betting Smart Manager was blocked because it used McAfee for antivirus and AT&T pushes Lookout for antivirus; though there really is no need for it at this point. I'm guessing download booster is gone to keep people off LTE as much as possible to keep congestion low.

    I don't recall anything else being yanked, but unless you have all the carriers phone and an international model all together and poking around in them it's hard to say what got pulled and what didn't.

    I can't believe you can't change that, either. Why do carriers think you have to change stuff like that?
