    Powered by n5 last night.... coming in from a GS4. How do you avoid the various carrier apps to keep coming to N5 upon restart? I have a ASUS tab and another verizon GS4 (work) all tied to my gmail account. When I restart I see the asus apps, verizon apps, and at&t apps loading....

    Thanks.

    N5 (at&t) is a carrier free pure android so a carrier cant push anything to it. OTA comes from google not at&t

    Thanks.... but for some reason whatever ATT installed on the GS4 is listed as downloads in google.com/play. So when I loaded the phone up... all the annoying att branded software also came through. As did ASUS and Verizon stuff.

    Is there a way to delete the carrier/manufacture specific apps from the play store? Luckily N5 is a pure android phone they do uninstall.

    When you signed into your Google account, you allowed it to backup/restore your data. That is why it began downloading all of your last used apps from the Play Store. Disable that and it won't happen anymore.

    ^this is exactly the reason why. Since you have a log in Google play of either updating our downloading these AT&T apps, Google attempts to install them on your nexus 5.

    If you go to the Play Store app. Then My Apps. Go to the "all tab" find the offending app and click the X in the top right cover of that app's card. It will be removed from your list for good.
