Thank you, I think I got an idea where to look next: Samsung / EN support. It seems to me EN and Samsung are cahoots. Unless it's a weird bug, and EN forgets it's been disabled, tentatively removed, uninstalled altogether. Weird coincidence. Not familiar just yet with the Android OS folder structure, but I'll get to it. Due to lack of dynamic range on my phone, the Force Stop and Disable buttons look like the are active, but they are greyed out actually. If you take a look at Clear Data button, bottom right, it shows much brighter, and available / active. The whole point is I don't want the app, and I won't install it hoping the reminders will go away or be less obtrusive. Thanks again !
