I've had my Android LG MS690 through MetroPCS and while the phone is hot, the service is not. Most people I know who work with me and have Metro cannot get service inside the building such as actual calls coming through but the Android tell me when I've missed a call, text etc so I guess I am ok with that for right now. What I don't seem to get is why the phone has applications that even if you force stop them, seem to come back on when ever they want and eat up my battery terribly. Like there is this app that I did not purchase that is permanentlyon my phone called Extra and one of the most annoying useless applications. I go to applications, force it to stop and the next day it is back. Any suggestions on how to permanently keep some apps either completely dormant or how to remove them? I need all the advice on how to use this phone I can get. The Metro store I bought it from is always too busy to help. Thanks.
