    I'm having a problem with the Amazon app that came with the phone (NOT the Amazon App Store). I get prompts for updates every day. I downloaded the app from the internet to overwrite and update it, and that worked for a week, but the constant update prompts are coming again. I always go through to update it, but it never goes through. I turned off Notifications for the app under Settings. I ALSO tried going to Notifications within the app itself and it always gives this error: "There is a problem with Google Service now. Please try again later." The Cobalt solution is waay to confusing for me. Certainly there must be some way to stop this!

    I had the same problem - this is how I solved it:

    Download Ghost Commander from BB World - you can then uninstall the Amazon store app. in reality, it does not actually uninstall (you cannot uninstall it) - however, it becomes "virgin" as if you never launched it in the first place.

    So - after doing the above, the Amazon app will remain "dormant" as long as you don't launch it

    And the update notifications will stop.

    I got the same 'Google play service error'. I don't have any updates though.
    I just went in the Amazon app store and downloaded the Amazon shop app, it said download, not update, as if I didn't have it installed already. When I installed it it said update instead of install. Updated just fine. Idk if you've tried this yet.
