    Thread LTE watch, NumberShare/NumberSync/DIGITS, and “standalone” mode

    This question is for people who have an LTE watch and are using a carrier sync service like AT&T NumberShare, Verizon NumberSync, or T-Mobile DIGITS. If you don’t have your phone with you, and your watch is connected to LTE but is in “standalone” mode rather than “remotely connected” mode...

    Thread Any way to disable Sony apps without root?

    Seems like at least once or twice a day some Sony app that I never use leaves some notification in my status bar. Is there any way to disable these Sony apps? I think the "What's New" app is one of the worst offenders. Sent from my F5321 using Tapatalk
