This app keeps popping up! I never installed it. I'll ever want to use it. I'm going to have to disable it through settings since Google play store won't let me uninstall it. I think these kinds of apps are useless, but I don't think apps should be installed on anyone's phone unless they want them. This app pops up everytime I open my screen up, yes every time. The only time it doesn't is when it has been sitting in my recent apps because I didn't swipe out of it yet. Total waste of time.......

This app is complete garbage! like everything else T-Mobile touches it has turned to complete garbage! It had worked flawlessly for years under Sprint now with T-Mobile you have to uninstall reinstall error message won't work can't communicate nothing but garbage and customer care can't help! Two hours with customer service and they are as useless as can possibly be! Everybody at T-Mobile is completely incompetent and should not be in charge of a lemonade stand let alone a Communication Company!

Disappointed that I need to constantly uninstall and reinstall the app to make it work. Updates do not install correctly according to sprint. I have a cat phone that is geared towards this program.
