Default Evil ATT Address Book

How in the heck can we stop this monster short of rooting and debloating? Everytime I try anything with contacts there it is and I have to hit the back button to escape. There doesn't seem to be a way anywhere to kill this atrocity of an app.

Okay, call me stupid, it gives more options NOT to use it once your SIM is active. So used to HTC Dev Editions, or GPE. Mods can delete.

You should be able to disable it through Apps in Settings. What I usually do is just have it set up then in contacts under settings manually uncheck it so it doesn't sync anything.

They don't let you disable it on the G2, I doubt they'd do so on the G3. One of the reasons I ordered a T-Mobile version.

You'd probably have to do a root-debloat to get rid of it.

Download titanium backup and freeze all of the AT&T apps this way they can be unfrozen when you need to do an OTA.

Simple....root it and use a root uninstall app. No reason not to root
