Electrify M: U S Cellular Bloatware

2013-03-30, 14:21 PM

I thought I would pass this tip along..some of you may already know this.  You CAN do something about all the bloatware the phone comes with ex: daily perks navigator deluxe and all that amazon crud.

Go to settings>apps>scroll all the way right to All.  Then in each app you may have to uninstall any updates, after that you will see DISABLE.

The app wil no longer run / update from play store / removes it from any running process and removes it from the app drawer.  The app is still there at the bottom of the all list marked as "disabled"

I was able to get rid of:

All the amazon crud, City ID, Daily Perks, Google play books, magazines, movies and tv and google+, mobile TV, tone room deluxe, navigator deluxe and zappos.

Have to give credit to the wife, she found this, (we both have the electrify m).

On the google items you may get nagged about something no longer working properly etc don't worry, it dont, who uses google + anyway? I know of no one that does.

Thanks for sharing...

I have the old 5G Data Plan so Navigator Deluxe has no extra fee to use it. Most new Data Plans charge extra to use that.

I find the Navigator very helpful when traveling and thankful it it free on my old plan. I mostly agree with you on all the extra added stuff, especially when there are additional fees to try/use them.
