    These are the apps I disabled on my ATT Priv when I got it
    Amazon Kindle
    ATT family map
    ATT navigator
    ATT protect plus
    ATT smart wifi
    Direct tv
    Drive mode
    Finance
    Lookout
    Mobile tv
    Smartlimits
    Uber
    Yp
    Visual voice mail

    Is this a 'ton' of bloatware? I pray you never buy an ASUS zenpad product.

    Your opinion may differ.

    I find Visual Voicemail to be very useful. Also I don't think I'd qualify the Kindle app as bloatwear. Lots of people install Kindle on their phones, don't they?

    Kindle is one of the most intrusive pieces of bloatware in Android.

    I don't use e-readers. Kindle is always running in the background sucking up info. I finally disabled it & now anytime I'm typing on a social media app, I get the error "com.amazon.kindle has stopped".

    In other words, it keeps trying to start up and fails thanks to the disable. Curious as to why it tries starting every time I'm using Facebook or Twitter apps.

    That's about half of what they stick on the new Galaxy S6 phones.

    But a lot more than what they put on BB10 phones. On BB10, some of those things are services that are hooked into the system and not separate apps you can do anything with, like visual voice-mail, smart Wi-Fi (hooks into the network settings), or the AT&T Address Book (hooks into the Contacts app).
