    The only time either of those programs should be launching is if a magnet is against the back of the phone. Otherwise, no you cannot uninstall them unless you root the phone.

    It's worth a try. The range isn't that much. If it doesn't work you can get one with a Velcro closure. There are also apps that will prevent the mode from coming up.
