How to remove pre-installed apps on Galaxy Note II

Well I just unloaded my iPhone 5 on CL this weekend and made the swtich to the Galaxy Note II.   So far I am loving it with the exception of a few things.

 

1.   You can not move apps or support files over to the SD card, which I understand is new to Jellybean OS

2.   Unlike Apple, AT&T has blemished the OS with all sorts of crap and mods to the Google OS and Samsung Skin.

 

Is there anyway to relaim my device to the way Google/Samung meant it to be?

Have you gone to Settings>Application manager>All, selected the app that you want and disabled it?  I don't think that you will be able to uninstall the apps unless you root the device, but disabling the app will make the app disappear from your App Drawer.  The app will still be on the phone and request update notifications, though.

I had no idea you could do that - Brilliant!  It would be nice to be able to delete them but this at least removes them from sight!  Thanks!

You perform similar steps, Settings>Application manager>All and select "Enable" to re-enable the apps that you had disabled in the past.

Did you go into Settings>Application Manager>All and scroll to the bottom of the list?  The disabled apps are at the bottom of the apps list.

The disabled applications on my phones haven't requested one update since disabling them.
Probably from mobile, maybe. Smiley Happy

I'll double-check this, but I'm pretty sure that the AT&T apps that I disabled on my Galaxy S4 still give notifications that they need to be updated.

I double-checked it.  There was also a box to check for notifications in the same screen when I disable the app.  I needed to check that box in addition to disabling the app.  Thanks for the tip Ann154!

I guess I never noticed the notification check box before, 21stNow. I wonder if that is something that added in one of the system updates. I checked some of the pre-installed Google apps on my Nexus and they have the same notification box checked on. The disabled applications on my phone also has the check box but it is unchecked. Maybe that's why I don't get notified of updates.
