thank you!

you can try opening it and going to its settings and disabling it. i dont know if there is that option. the only way to delete or disable pre-installed apps is to root your phone.

Getting Back To Stock
I need a Volunteer who wants to go back COMPLETELY STOCK
http://androidforums.com/ally-all-things-root/342363-nandroid-2-2-2-stock-rooted.html

and there is TONS more info in the all things root forum along with the rest of the web, Google is your best friend

so for the OP, if you want to root your phone, go into the all things root forum and do some reading, get on Google and look around. And know the first thing that happens to your phone when you root it is you VOID YOUR WARRANTY. do some research and if you still want to root it, more power to you and the people in the all things root forum will be a great help to you. i just think you ought to know a little more about what you're doing first.

and for you root users, don't be so quick to tell someone to one click root and flash a custom ROM. Im all for being able to root your phones but having people just one click root and flash a ROM is asking for trouble because they know NOTHING about the risks and how to troubleshoot. if you frequent the forums you know what I'm talking about. how often do you see posts from someone who has just made an account flipping out because they are stuck in a bootloop, something you guys know is usually an easy fix.

case and point. . . . just in the past couple weeks there are countless others, i see it ALL THE TIME

I have to wonder if there is an issue with the USB plug on the Ally. The only thing I know of which auto-opens the Car mode is when I put my Ally into the desktop dock I bought. I don't know exactly what transpires when that connection is made, but if I use the same cable directly to the phone without the dock, it doesn't open the Car app. So I'm thinking perhaps there is an intermittent connection or short in the Ally's USB jack. Blowing canned air into the USB jack might help.
