How to Remove Pre installed apps from Micromax Phones

When you buy a new smartphone the company offers some per installed applications. Now some of the apps are useful no doubt on that some are really crap no use and the worst part is they consume RAM too. So if you remove those apps it will surely help you to free up bit RAM. Micromax offers its own 2-3 apps if you don’t want to keep those apps to your phone you can disable/remove it. The method we have listed below will allow you to disable pre installed app from your MMX device. Rooting let you permanently delete it.

Delete Pre loaded Apps from Micromax Phones

For permanent removal of the applications you need to root the phone. Now most of the people resist to root so we have a ‘kaam chalau’ way disable those apps and remove them from the menu section.

Few days back MMX announced that BBM will also come as a preloaded app on MMX devices. If you want to keep that app its fine and if you don’t want that you can disable it too.

    How to root Micromax canvas gold? To change the font style

  22. Hareesh says:

    I have Micromax canvas 2 Colours (A120). It has 8GB ROM, android kitkat 4.4.2 and 1 GB RAM. I am confused with the internal memory. There is 3 storage sections- Phone storage, internal SD and external SD. Actually where the google play apps wil be stored and installed? How can I move apps to internal/external SD card? Phone memory is only 0.89 GB. That is not enough to store large size apps. I am very much disappointed due to this. So please tell me how can I store the apps in external SD card? I have seen an icon “move to external SD card” in settings. But that option is NOT working in majority of apps. Please give me a solution for this.

    • Rahul Mehta says:

      If the option is not available to move the apps to external SD card then you won’t be able to move the apps to the external SD card unless you root your device. Firstly, change the default storage location to external SD card. Currently the apps are being installed to Phone storage. Internal SD card is for mass storage.

  46. My Wifi symbol behaves weird.It is sometimes grey and sometimes blue however there is no problem in internet connection. It works perfectly fine irrespective of the color. Any way to fix it so that it is blue always as standard android phones have it. My phone is canvas 2.2 A114. Just purchased 1 week back.

    • Rahul Mehta says:

      Try the below solution and let me know if it works or not:
      Go to Settings–>Apps–>All Apps Tab–>Google Service Framework–>Tap on it and clear data–>force stop the app.

      Disconnect from Wi-Fi, connect again.

      • No luck. It was not allowing to force stop. I disabled it and then enable it again. However Wifi is working fine but color is still grey. It sometimes comes blue and then suddenly turns grey with no impact to Wifi connection.

      • It is still not working. CM Security tool detected 4 pre-installed apps as vires and I have uninstalled two of them (except GameHub and SMSReg) . Can that be the problem? Any way to fix it. Lot of reviews says blue means synching to google servers.

        • Rahul Mehta says:

          Also Uninstall/Disable the two.

        • Hi Rahul

          Many blogs says… SmsReg is a severe Virus. I am unable to uninstal.

          Can u advise the steps-by-step method to uninstal by rooting, or other methods. plz help asap.
          (note: all anti viruses failed to un-instal this SmsReg, rebooting also failed)

          • Rahul Mehta says:

            I disabled SmsReg from my phone and it worked. let me know if you want the guide else disable feature would work. Simple!

            Settings–>Apps–>All Apps–>SmsReg–>Disable.

    i dont know why the f&&& do you misguide people with your column, u r just telling to disable the apps, well duh we already knew that, the articles heading is delete remove apps , and NOTHING in the article tells how to do that, change the freakin name of the article and stop misguiding people

    • Rahul Mehta says:

      If you go through the comments, it has already been notified that only rooting your device can let you delete the apps permanently. The article was written in a way to let users know how the apps can be removed from menu.

    Hi Admin.
    1) I am using Canvas Nitro 2 phone (E311) model and unable to turn OFF the LED light (yellow colored), when I use the phone it won’t blink at all, if I lock the phone screen, it blinks, this happens all the time. What to do?
    2) I have to preinstalled apps on the home screen and I am trying to remove the icons from there by drag and remove to bin. (just icons only), I have those pre installed apps in the apps section in the next screen pages, so that is the reason I want to remove it.. How to do that?

    Thank you.

    • Siddhu says:

      Sorry, forgot to mention, when I try to tap and hold the pre installed app on the home screen, it just gives me an option to uninstall but not to remove the icon.

      • Rahul Mehta says:

        If your phone is allowing you to uninstall the app, you can proceed with it and then the icon won’t appear on your screen.

    • Rahul Mehta says:

      1. Are you talking about Notification light? If so, that is used to indicate about any coming notifications. Explore the settings if your phone allows turning it off or not.
      2. Pre installed apps can’t be removed, you can disable them thus they won’t appear in menuu.

      Reboot your device and try accessing them again, if this doesn’t work clear cache and data and then try.

  97. Prem Singh Rathore says:

    The device came pre installed with Truecaller, now there are new versions of truecaller that have come up, and many times true caller notifications also says that the version installed on the device is an older version, but every time I try to update the version, I get an error, and it says that the previous must be uninstalled and the new version then installed, which I cannot do at all, Also, under the System, About (phone) settings, it says that there is a new firmware available for the device, but when I am on wifi and am trying to update the the firmware of the device, it gives me an error that the same could not be done and stops it.

    • Rahul Mehta says:

      Try updating the OS and then a new TrueCaller (if available) will be installed. Also, try downloading the apk file from web and then install it.

      • Prem Singh Rathore says:

        How do I update the OS please.

        • Rahul Mehta says:

          Which phone do you have? If you don’t wish to update your phone simply shoot an email to Truecaller officials and ask them to provide you an installation file after explain what you have mentioned below.

  109. Daniel Navgire says:

    My phone Micromax Canvas A 190 model is really misbehaving.apps i.e:- unnecessarily apps getting auto downloaded, end number of different popup ads flash on the screen, and so my phone is hanged.. now i m not able to view any thing on my phone because these auto download of apps and pop ups which are so frequently running on my phone screen that really freeze my phone.

    End number of times I have uninstalled these unwanted apps from apps setting but whenever I switched on my handset it again starts downloading these apps automatically…I’m very frustrated and worried due to this..I don’t know when and how to stop this.
    Please help me to correct this micromax phone(A 190 model ).

    • Rahul Mehta says:

      Use data tracking apps for sometime, check which app exactly is consuming the maximum data. Once you have the confirmed result either disable that app or stop its internet connectivity.

Please guide me.

  113. Sumit Vasudev says:

    I want to update Truecaller app. But you have provided pre-installed app which I can’t Uninstall and also get error if I update it from playstore. Also I downloaded lattest version of truecaller from truecaller site for micromax. But when I install it, I receive messages app with same signature package already exist. Are u capable in solving this issue? Why you haven’t provided Uninstall option for the pre install app? Can’t we download only the useful app from playstore? Why should we keep useless app in our phone?

  114. Ashish says:

    The software update app in my micromax canvas does not provide me any disabeling facility and keeps on poping spam which is very annoying.
