    vzw demo issues

    I just bought this Samsung Galaxy Note 2 (Verizon phone) of CL. hind sight being 20/20 probably a bad idea. The problem is, it keeps running the vzw demo over and over. no matter how many times I force stop or uninstall it, it just keeps coming back. Is there any way to remove this from my phone for good? I have also tried to reset the phone as well to no avail.

    Welcome to the forum...the only phones that have demo are at the actual Verizon store...I've not heard of any phones for public with demo mode with them...check setting /application manager /All ..see if you can find the demo app and if it will let you disable or force stop....

    Can you elaborate on "vzw demo" a little more? What about flashing the stock firmware back to it with Odin?

    I tried force stopping as well as uninstall but it just keeps reinstalling itself. I also reset the phone to default settings and it came then as well

    I would take it to Verizon...you are stock so the only way to freeze the app is to root the phone....you tried to uninstall from applications manager? If so what happened?

    Welcome to the forum, I've seen this on other forums. If you got it from a Verizon store I would take it back and see what they'll do. If you can't do that then flashing the stock firmware with odin would be your next best choice.

    ive taken it to Verizon and they don't know why or how to stop it. what is odin? a friend of mine said it looks like a demo playing in the phone. so he thinks it is a demo phone. would that mean the dl is non-removable?

    But it was activated so why wouldn't Verizon realize it.. And I don't know doesn't cut it.. They should be able to flash it stock.. I would demand someone with half a brain @ Verizon help you first.. Smh
