    I bought a used AT&T phone, but am using it through Consumer Cellular, so the AT&T apps won't work. My problem is with the AT&T Address Book, which comes up whenever I look for contacts.
    Since I'm not directly an AT&T customer, I can't put my contacts into it. But it spends a minute hunting uselessly for them before letting me get to my real contacts. Is there any way to kill this app?

    The Greenbot link didn't help. I disabled all the apps labeled AT&T (except for AT&T Smart Wi-Fi, which had "disable" and "force stop" greyed out, but AT*T Address Book, which doesn't show on the app list, still comes up.

    Might it be part of my Contacts app? (Its logo is a green person inside a green circle.) How can I find out?

    And if it is, what contacts app would you guys recommend I use in place of it?
