I would like to know this too and that's probably what the other person was asking. I don't see anything that can be disabled in system and i can't make it quit popping up.

for those who use the phone with another carrier, no option to disable it just does not appear, at first it's annoying, but after 3 or 4 attempts to divert pressing the back button not bother asking again sync with att.

I never posted a follow up to my original post so here's some information...

I could not get to the option to disable the address book sync because I had never activated the AT&T address book. While trying to activate it my phone would be stuck on the information screen telling me to call 611 to have it added to my account. After a day I finally realized that the initial activation has to be done over mobile data and will not work if done over WiFi. So I got it working and disabled the sync but eventually I just switched over to the international versions apps with no AT&T bloat from this thread

works well on Samsung Galaxy S5 AT&T SM-G900A

apk taken from odex g900f, apk list to replace:


SecContacts.apk --> at&t --> SecContacts_Phone_FLAGSHIP_NA_ATT_WHITE.apk <-- delete and replace.
SecContacts.odex --> at&t --> SecContacts_Phone_FLAGSHIP_NA_ATT_WHITE.odex <-- delete and replace.
