    Hi all,

    My S2 is with 02, and under Samsung Apps, it looks as though I have 2 pre-installed apps but there are updates available and my icon is showing a '2' above it.

    It's rather annoying as I don't want the apps but cannot find anywhere to uninstall them.

    Is there anyway I can get rid of these 2 apps?

    You need to be rooted before you can remove them.

    Edit - Or just update to a generic Samsung firmware and it removes Carrier Bloatware.

    I'm not rooted, but I uninstalled QIK, but I still get notifications on an update for it being available. Very annoying!
