I swear I saw a post about this somewhere before I got my phone, but now I can't find it... How the hell do you get the "AT&T Address Book - Checking Subscriber Information" pop-up to stop coming up every time you open up the Contacts app?

I tried clearing cache in Contacts, didn't work. I have frozen ALL AT&T bloatware, still coming up. I'm not sure which app is causing this stupid pop-up. Help would be appreciated.

Settings -> Application Manager -> "All" tab -> "AT&T Messages"
Click Stop if its running then Disable.

See if that works.

Thanks, already tried that, for some reason it kept popping up. I ended up rooting, and renaming the app with a .bak extension, and rebooting. Seems to have gone away now. Thanks for pointing me to the right app though.

here's the old thread (it was mine)

http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1724071

It ended up stopping popping up for me without really needing to do anything. Not sure what if anything changed but I never rooted or did any of the steps mentioned in the thread.

What worked for me is just let it do it's thing, don't hit cancel. A pop up will come up asking you if you want it to check or sync with AT&T address book next time, paraphrasing here, click no. Done. Now when I got into my contacts it doesn't come up anymore.

I did the same thing and it never came back up for me. This was before I was rooted. Even after I don't get it anymore

No clue. I let it do its thing probably 10 times and it never went away. Now that I rooted and removed anything related to AT&T, it doesn't come up anymore. I have no idea why my phone was being so stubborn with it.
