    Bloat question

    hello everyone, just got the X2 and have a quick question. Is there any way to make it so the bloat apps stop updating on their own?

    Not without rooting your phone.

    That sucks, my other question. Beside the time in the notification bar, there is a astaire box with a check in it that won't go away. I search online and can't get an answer....

    I'm not sure what an astaire box is. What does it say when you pull down the notification tray?

    Did you try going in to each app and unchecking the "allow automatic updating"?

    Hmmm, do you have an alarm set? I can't remember what that one looks like. Might try a reboot if you haven't already. Maybe someone else will chime in with some suggestions- can't think of anything else to try.

    Pretty sure this won't work for the built in "bloatware" apps pre-installed on the phone, but I may be wrong.
