    We just got the Victory this weekend. Essentials ID keeps wanting to download their "pack". I don't want to download it, as I am sure it is just a lot of bloatware. Is there a way to have it not constantly ask about downloading it?

    The only way to shut it up would be to install it or freeze or delete the MobileID app.

    Installing is the easiest and you could go in afterwards and remove the bloat it installs.

    To freeze or remove the app would require rooting your phone so it's a bit more involved.

    If this is still an issue, you can freeze the app via the standard apps menu on 4.x and above. No root required.

    Settings - Apps - All - MobileID - Disable.

    I've been able to do it on every device I've had running ICS and above. Not sure if the Victory 4G differs though.

    Thank you for that suggestion, but when I tried that the disable button was grayed out, so I couldn't check it. I guess I may have to install it, and then delete whatever it installed. If the new apps that it downloads are throughout the apps already there, I am not sure if I will even find what the download is anyway! I just don't like that reminder in my info bar always there. I like to tidy things up!
