    Welcome to Android Forums tracy. I'm not familiar with your phone so I can't help directly. This is the S3 Watering hole, a social thread on the forum. Several folks here own the S3 (I don't) so they may be able to help.

    You could also start a thread in here (Samsung Galaxy S3 - Android Forums) and ask as thousands of folks here have an S3 and are always willing to help a fellow device owner.:)

    Good luck getting your phone squared up.

    LGATCMD is a service that runs on LG phones that a lot of people ask about and no one answers.

    Oh, sorry, I saw your post in an S3 thread and figured that is what you had for a device. I'll move these posts to a new thread in the Android Lounge where a lot of expert hang out. I also know someone that's pretty good with LG devices and I'll ask him to look and see if he has any ideas.

    Hey tracy puckett,
    Unfortunately, for your specific model we can't be sure exactly which apps are safe to remove and which are not. There are a few apps that are relatively safe to remove on just about all phones. But some apps are safe to remove on some phones, and not others.

    The more system apps you remove, the more you risk your phone no longer working, having random errors, or randomly rebooting. I suggest freezing/disabling apps for a trial period before removing them, so you can test a bit first with less risk. You will need to download an app from the market to freeze system apps. Beware though, freezing the wrong app can also cause you phone to stop working.

    Below are "safe to remove" lists for similar phones. You can use them as a sort of guide in your quest to remove system bloatware.
