Please remove the ItsOn system application immediately from my phone. It is draining my battery more than all other system functions and apps. The app appeared after the recent update. It is causing me to have sub par battery life.
Does the app go under a different name. Is ItsOn named something else? Please research and give a detailed answer of why it's on my phone and why I cannot remove it.
It says in my link that ItsOn application is used by cell service providers so thry/Sprint can controll aspects of my phone.
I own this phone.
Unfortunately, ItsOn is an integral app within the phones OS. It can't be removed like an app from the Play store. Best you can do is try to find the service and do a Force Stop and Disable if it allows. However, I don't believe you can.
By chance, are you on a Pre Pay Plan or a 2yr contract plan?
Shantoya, agree that you cannot, but Sprint can certainly remove this intergration if Sprint chooses.
Share Plan? or Individual Plan?
The purpose of the ItsOn service as I've read is to give the customer the ability to interact with their plan. For instance, say you have a shared plan with X GB of data. Using ItsOn you should be able to limit how much of that Data any one individual on that shared plan can use. For example, say you have kids. You can limit data, sites, functions like email, etc.. for their phones and then leave the parents phones unaffected.
Sorry, that's a simplified explanation. But all I've got at the moment.
