Disable Pre-Installed apps
This has always been an issue, all the pre-installed apps that all wireless companies put on their phones. Until now I have always, disabled the one's I could and dealt with the other's until I felt comfortable enough to root, then FREEDOM. Until now, and this phone (as much as I like it), has extremely too many that can't be disabled. This is ridiculas, I understand there are apps to make this company unique, and apps that are advertisments, I get that, and even though I wish there were none at all, I can live with a few, that's just how business works these days. But this goes beyond what is acceptable.
Is there anyway to disable, these apps that are on the surface not disable-able? Is there no way to turn some of this off. There is the push-to-talk, I don't use that, there is the Family Map, I don't use that, At&t Live, I HATE that, there is mobile locate, I don't use that,
Here's a really dumb one, AT&T Ready2Go, this should be a one time use thing, it should automatically disable it's self. Beats Music (I'm a 42 y/o man, I don't do music), the "Live Wallpapers", I don't use them, they use too much battery, the VIRUS, AD-WARE, SPY-WARE Browser Bar.
PLEASE HELP ME, if nothing else it's the principal of the thing, as much as I have paid for the phone I should be able to turn off what I don't want.
