    Client driven crazy by the Vodafone Start(?) App (I think this is the name of the app)

    Apologies for both:
    • if there is already a thread about this (I can't find one)
    • my lack of knowledge re: Android (8.x / Oreo)


    I'm a Passport owner who is waiting for the price to drop before I upgrade to a Key2... I was discussing this with a client who has just set up his own business and he was very happy to learn that he can still buy a BlackBerry with a keyboard (his last firm decommissioned all their Bolds, and then had him on Windows Phone followed by iPhone).

    I told the client that the best option is buy an unlocked Key2...
    ...the next day he proudly emailed me to tell me that he had bought a Vodafone Key2! (And he was setting it up himself - a big mistake IMHO as he is not at all technical, I would have preferred if I had done this for him - at least if I had done this I could have followed all of the setup guides and googled each option).

    This Key2 has a Vodafone app covering the top quarter or fifth of the screen - it doesn't seem to do anything (other than take up screen real estate) except promote Vodafone offers/adverts.

    Any ideas please how I can remove, disable or hide this app? It's driving the client crazy (and frankly putting me off getting a Key2).

    I've looked in apps, widgets, notifications, etc and can't seem to find anything pertinent (I'm not at all Android 8 savvy so it is likely that I've missed something really obvious!).

    Many thanks in advance.

    Just removed it from nome screen and sent it down the launcher via the 'remove' track, it is a sort of widget
