Yoga Phone Companion - Implications of removal

2015-11-20, 11:41 AM

 

I have just bought a Yoga 2 11.6 and I want to uninstall any programs I know I won't use.  Yoga Phone Companion is one of them.

 

Before I uninstall the software can anyone confirm the only thing I will lose is the functionalityof the program itself, and that any background functionality such as Bluetooth, etc. will not be affected?

 

Many thanks.

hi paulsdunford,

 

Welcome to the Forums.

 

The Lenovo Phone Companion is used to sync your phone's pictures, videos, messages (SMS), contacts. and also send SMS and make phone calls as well. 

 

 

I can confirm that uninstalling this software from the Control Panel > Programs and Features will not impact other functionality of the machine like the Bluetooth., Wireless, etc. but I recommend you create a system restore point prior to uninstalling anything just in case you need to revert back the changes.

 - sample unit was Yoga 2 Pro but same aspect applies on the Yoga 2 11
