Since the last Lollipop update last week (April 2 is when I got it), Amazon and Contacts keep showing a message that indicates that these applications have stopped. In the case of Amazon, it continuously stops. The bad thing is unless you press 'OK' on the message, the phone basically halts until you press okay and then goes back to normal until Amazon stops again. The REALLY bad thing is that the alarm clock function halts as well until the Amazon stop message is cleared. My phone functioned fine until this latest update. I uninstalled all of the Amazon software I installed (i.e., Music, Kindle, etc.) and rebooted, but there is apparently some "bloat-ware" that must still be running. I just want this fixed.
Which 'Amazon' app is it? The phone came with a number of them and I do actually use Amazon Music. There is no application on my phone called just 'Amazon'. If there had been, I would have disabled that.
Also, 'Contacts' also has this error, so there is a issue here beyond just Amazon. It just that Amazon was the first application that failed. If I'd had the time, Contacts would have failed in another few minutes.
Traced things back to a piece of bloatware installed by either Samsung or Verizon called 'Amazon'. Took a bit but I was able to disable it. I cannot uninstall it because it's bloatware. Hopefully this will correct the problem.
