You need to click on/touch on the subject line of the private message to open it. Once it is opened, then you will have a reply button. 

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

Thats a non answer.  Im to a point where a root canal is more fun than interacting with Verizon.

I have a Droid and the usual instructions for finding and disabling the app didn't work. I had to expand the Verizon App Manager as an app was downloading to get access to it and then was able to disable it.  Verizon should be ashamed for installing apps without permission.

I agree. Verizon has started getting annoying. It took all my free space on my phone and filled it up w unwanted programs. Who knows how much information got stolen by these apps as well! There's probably legal repercussions to that. I hope Verizon is aware that they're going to be the root cause for all the data breaches from apps they installed.

 

I made account just to say maybe it's time to shift to smaller carriers that aren't so annoying. -Verizon customer for years.

I just had this happen recently. The Verzion App Manager has installed two apps on my phone without my permission. This app is now disabled. Shame on you Verizon.

Hey Delores, wouldn't it be more helpful to send messages to everyone on this thread who is having the same issues? It's extremely rude to find help for one person but not for everyone.

It already installed two apps on my phone and was trying to install a third one when I caught it. No app should be installing other random apps on your phone without your permission. Verizon you need to fix this issue. 

I'm pretty computer savvy and I can't even figure out what the Verizon app managers actual job is on my phone. Especially with the fact that my phone is an Android phone and designed to maintenance apps on its own.

And no I do not want to one-on-one conversation with you in order to fix this issue. I want you to post it so everybody can see it in this form.
