Using the instructions found under Google from Verizon, I access the application manager, all apps, and then the choices that were under the option. It says that apps are disabled that are clearly not because I use them everyday and vice a versa. What is going on? All I originally wanted to do was to change the highlight color of birthdays on my calendar, and I never figured out how to do that either.
If you use them then they are not disabled. Hopefully these screenshots will help you visualize the steps you are needing for your phone.
This is the start of my disabled list.

I'm most definitely NOT a VZW employee. If a post answered your question, please mark it as the answer.
