    I don't think that you can uninstall that app.

    Any particular reason why you'd want to uninstall it?

    I installed it to see if that would help with the lte issues caused by the poopy firmware andi installed 1314 last night and I'm still receiving half the lte speeds I receive on my galaxy s3 and iPhone 5 so wanted to see if access point was causing it for any reason since it was the only thing I did to the phone since 1308. Also if I dis a full reset access point would be gone as well since it was downloaded from the app store right?

    If you restore from a backup, it will just reinstall itself. To get rid of it you have to do a hard reset and do not restore from backup. Then setup the phone...

    Glad I didn't install that one. It's my understanding that Nokia never pushed it out to ATT phones.

    You are incorrect. If you restore from back up you will not get this app. You would still have to go to the store and download it. Ibdid this already.. I had to wait foe the first gdr and them it was available to download. Another thing. Resetting the phone is a pain in the *** andbi bricked my device for over 10 hrs. If you are not tech savvy enough to troubleshoot when it goes wrong (because I promise you that it will go wrong) I would not do it all. Besides it will take another week for the amber update to come through.

    Change the year to 2180 or something like that and hit the access point again, the uninstall option will pop up.

    Thank you!!
    Worked like a charm.
    I used this to get rid of the AT&T tethering block on a phone that I am using on Consumer Cellular.

    FYI though: It looks like the manually set year needs to be 'at least' 100 years out to get the uninstall prompt otherwise you only get a sim error message.
