    Thought this was a good idea, one of the other posters in the VZW pre-order thread thought of it.

    Good place for tech support and assistance/tips relating to our Verizon service!

    What bloatware has everyone disabled on their Verizon phones? I only disabled Messages+ so far, looking for some more suggestions.

    Funny, that's the one piece of Verizonware I don't disable. It's actually an excellent texting app.

    I've disabled whatever the f**k 90Go is - or Go90, whatever it's called - the Ant+ radio and its friends (huge battery drain); Verizon Protect; Verizon Cloud; Samsung Gear (don't use any); Hancom Office; Google Play Music and the stock e-mail app. Can't access my phone right now, as it's powered off and sitting quietly while the Armorsuit screen protector seals and dries, but there were several other things I disabled that I cannot recall right now.

    Literally everything stock from Samsung. I downloaded the Clock, Calendar, Gmail apps.

    The only thing I kept was Gallery.

    Kicked out all the Verizon apps but Voicemail but may eventually make Google Voice my go to.

    Disabled Messages+ because I like a clean feeling messaging experience, and downloaded Textra as I have for every Android device I've owned.

    SD card notification keeps popping up saying that I have an SD card in the phone. What gives with that?

    Always? I only see it after a restart. Once I dismiss the notification, it doesn't return until another restart.

    I completely understand.

    I disabled everything from Verizon except My Verizon and login. Disabling login screws up My Verizon for me.

    You can just use it without anything bad happening. Bubbles always went away for me without letting it dry in the past. Hate the orange peel though.

    Google Voice is the way to go. So much better.

    It'll go away on its own. I raged at that all day yesterday.

    Nope. It's just radio bloatware. I've never used it. Hell I haven't listened to local radio since MP3 on CD-R support for aftermarket CD players came out back in the early 2000s.

    I've seen it twice in the past 24 hours with no restarts.

    It just says radio and you can't disable one of the Ant+ processes with disabler pro so it makes sense you would think it's an important and vital process on the phone.

    On a side note: Who can record 720p video @ 240fps? I don't see the option on my phone! Stupid Verizon(?).

    Like most I disabled all the Verizon stuff except Messages+ and MyVerizon, haven't done so with the Samsung stuff yet as I want to test it all out but probably will.

    On a side note I highly recommend keeping Messages+ whither or not you use it, you can download the desktop app from verizon and read and send texts from your computer, quite nice I have found. Push Bullet and mySMS do the same but they aren't totally free and have a couple slightly annoying things if you just use the free version.

    Well.... do you have one? Maybe the phone is just trying to be helpful and remind you!!

    I normally don't like linking to Wiki, but they get the Ant+ description correct here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ANT%2B
