New to these forums and don't really know if this is the place for this question so forgive me if its out of place. I have a HTC desire HD android phone and im with the vodaphone network. There are several Apps on the phone which seem to have come factory standard which i have no use for. I would be happy enough just leaving them on the phone with their icons deleted but they keep on trying to update themselves and its driving me nuts. I don't want to just turn off automatic updates to solve this problem I would really like to take a proactve approach so i am in control of the programs on my phone in the same way i am on my computer. If anyone has any tips or links to help me get rid of these annoying apps they would be much appreciated.
