How to Stop update checking of stock Samsung Phone Contacts and Messages Apps.

New Member


I keep getting update notifications in the stock samsung apps for Phone, Contacts and Messages. 

A little bubble or badge notification (1) shows up in the top right of the apps and tells me to go to settings > About Phone > and then says there is an update avaliable. 


I dont want the app to check for the update in the first place. 

Is there a way to disable this update checking? The notification annoys me so i cant ignore it.

As far as I can see thus far its a notification that cannot be muted. 


Personally I like to keep my apps up to date so I prefer them to notify me to get the best from each App. 


Other than that its a case of just ignoring it.
