I've uninstalled some apps my Z10 came with, but BlackBerry System update re-installs them every time. Worst, If I ignore the update, The phone reminds me about twice a day. But I don't want to completely disable all updates. I just don't need updates about unwanted softwares that aren't even on phone in the first place.
As has always been with BlackBerry devices, there are always embedded apps within the OS, and those change over time as different licensing deals come and go. Some are directly embedded by BlackBerry, others are embedded by the carriers (who still control the OS release process for BB10).
Unfortunately, there is presently nothing for BB10 that is comparable to AppLoader where we could control exactly what loads to the BB at the time of implementing an update (non-OTA, of course). Unless and until such a function arrives for BB10, the only way to obtain the updated OS is to accept those unwanted items...and remove them after the update completes.
Annoying...yes...but there is no other way at this time. Consider it similar to those annoying "teaser" shortcuts that the carriers are always pushing out to pre-BB10 devices...annoying as well, and no way to prevent.
Occam's Razor nearly always applies when troubleshooting technology issues!
