How To Remove Default Apps On Samsung Galaxy S?

I have some default apps that i do not want on my phone, their permissions are too invasive as far as i am concerned. I have tried all the usual paths, ie, going to settings-applications-etc but these annoying apps will not go away. The phone is dead standard and i have only about 6 apps that i have downloaded. Any advice would be appreciated.

Orange T-mobile Default Network - Samsung Galaxy S2

I've got a newly purchased samsung galaxy s2 on an orange contract. The network defaults to "orange", as you'd expect, but i've manually changed that to "orange t-mobile" as it makes a big difference in coverage on my journey to work.

When i power-cycled the phone, it reverted back to "orange" on startup. I don't plan to power cycle very often, but just wondered if there was a way of setting a preferred network on the handset instead of having to manually change every time the phone starts? On my old nokia e72, once i'd set to "orange t-mobile" the first time, it stuck even through many power cycles (crappy thing kept losing data connectivity until reset!).

Feeds Reader Default Setting On Samsung Galaxy Nexus

Just noticed a default setting in reader that syncs your feeds every hour for offline reading. I'm turning it off to see if it saves some battery at my desk where i have little to no data. I usually read in the crapper where shockingly there's better signal.

Samsung Galaxy S - Change Text To Capital Letters Automatically

This may sound like a very minor and/or basic problem but i find it really frustrating. I have a samsung i9000 galaxy s and when i text (predictive enabled) it won't capitalize the first letter of any sentence including the first? So you constantly have to go in and change the letter to a capital manually. Any ideas how to fix this? Surely the phone is smart enough to do this. I used to have a basic nokia that could do this. I've searched through the settings but no joy.

What Apps Do I Install On My New Samsung Galaxy Nexus ?

I already got help here with my first post, so here goes number 2. I ordered a new unlocked gangland nexus. It is replacing my iphone 4. I found out i had to swap out the sim card and i should be up and running. Ok, what do i do next? This is my first droid phone. I have read how to export my contacts to gmail and that will transfer them over to my new phone. I don't want my calender entries, i hope i can do that directly form outlook.

So what do i install? I know the standards apps, but what else should i do to my phone. Root it? I already know that i have to make sure that it has something with a bunch of letters in it to make sure i get updates. Is there a tutorial or a great post that someone can steer me too.

How Do I Restore Stock Apps On Samsung Galaxy Ace?

I've got gt-s5830 phone running 2. 3. 3. So far the phone is working perfect. I was messing around the other and deleted some stock apps by error. I used ti backup for this. I would like to restore a couple of them back, so i used the restore function in ti backup, but for some reason it did not work. Did not give any errors, just rebooted without the app being restored.

Anyway, i believe i have 2 options.

1). Flash 2. 3. 3 which i found - droidangel. Blogspot.com/2011/05/samsung-galaxy-ace-s5830-original-stock.html

2) upgrade to 2. 3. 5 which is also located at the above page. But i am not sure what 2. 3. 5 would be best to use. I'm in the uk, using a vf contract with a unlocked phone.

I have no issues on flashing, but i don't want to flash using the wrong rom and messing it all up.

I am new galaxy nexus user though i am not new to the android os as i using an acer e130 android 2. 1. Now, my dad bought this unit in saudi arabia, and i have received it hours ago here in the philippines. Immediately after i got the unit, i downloaded some non-market apps and tried to transfer these to my unit via usb.

Installing Apps, Games Files Into External Sd Card On Samsung Galaxy S2

I have a samsung galaxy s2 i9100g, along with sony xperia neo and htc desire z. After searching extensively throughout the internet and androidforums.com, i needed to post this thread.

On my xperia neo, which has no "internal storage" unlike the sgs2, apps/games can install completely on its "external sd storage". The same is applied to the desire z.

On the sgs2 however, the app/game is present on the "internal sd storage". (11gb out of 16gb). It only move 1% in reality to the "external sd" that too into the secandroid folder.

What i want to ask is that apps such as "sygic", "gta 3", "asphalt", "nova" etc have considerable size of files and while the sgs2 has 11gb available they install into the "internal sd" but in xperia neo, which has about 200mb of "internal phone memory" and no "internal sd storage", these apps/games install their bulk files into the "external sd storage" which is shown as "sd storage".

Please help me and tell me how i can makes these apps/games install their files into the "external sd card". Since "asphalt 6" is about 900mb and on sgs2 it is on the 11gb "internal sd" while on the xperia it is on the "external sd" which is mounted as the "sd card". I am waiting for your helpful replies and advises.

Cannot Install, Update Apps Or Clear Cache Data - Samsung Galaxy Nexus

Can't install, uninstall or update any apps either through google play on phone or through internet. When trying on my phone, the screen gets stuck at the blue progress line ("installing", "uninstalling", etc. ) And never completes. Back button doesn't leave the screen, but the home button and recent apps button will get me out, and i can go back to the settings>apps screen and try again.

Can't clear cache or data for any apps from the settings>apps. All apps say "computing. " For storage and cache info and never change. In settings>apps>running a number of games (small street, contract killer, stardom, e. Warriors, etc. ) Auto-start and keep coming back after i force close or reboot.

Here's what i've done so far to try to fix it. Reboot, shut down, battery pull. Force close every suspicious app. Certain apps keep coming back. Tried to clear cache of google play store app, but it doesn't seem to clear. Also, clear data, uninstall update never completed. Read more at the forum.

Phone Closes All Apps That Were Open, When Screen Goes To Sleep - Samsung Galaxy Nexus

I just noticed that when the screen goes to sleep the phone closes all apps that were open. For example, i was playing angry birds and stopped to talk to someone. After 30 seconds or whatever the screen went to sleep and when i woke it i was back at my home screen. When i went back to the app it had to start from scratch. It does this all of the time, now that i am paying attention. Is this normal? I assume a battery saving thing?

Htc Eris - Apps Still On Phone After Wipe And Rom Change

I rooted on thursday, and i'm loving root. So far, i've tried quite a few roms, probably about 6 or 7. Sometimes, i'll do a wipe, but my apps are still installed on the rom. For example, i went from official with all my apps installed, wiped then installed kaos legendary (none of my apps were there from official), wiped, zenexp. In zenexp, all my apps were still on the phone. I find this extremely strange, why is it happening?
