Applications forced by provider?

I have a STL100-2 on O2 Germany, and installed 10.0.10.90 using a Vodafone SIM.

When i check for updates it displays an update of 13MB. I install it, but all it does is restoring the applications i deleted due to not using them (box, linkedin, facebook, foursquare).

When i update and delete only one of those apps (box) and check for update again it offers me an update of 1MB, which restores the box application.

(version is still 10.0.10.90 after the update)

 

Am i unable to uninstall these apps (box, linkedin, foursquare, facebook) without getting nagged by an "update"?

Re: Applications forced by provider?

Hey simon_hain,

 

Thanks for the question.

 

These applications are part of the device software and if you remove them you will receive a prompt for an update.  Currently there is no workaround for this.

 

Let me know if you have any more questions.

 

Cheers.

Re: Applications forced by provider?

thank you for clarifiyng that.

and please note that i really don't like it. it feels as if i don't have control over my own device, and that is something i connected to Apple so far.
