It will not allow me to uninstall an APP. There is NO uninstall option on the APP. It will disable but not let me uninstall on my phone.

There are a lot of bloatware apps that carriers put on phones that you cannot uninstall.

Unfortunately, there's indeed bloatware apps that can't be deleted. Many devices come from any manufacturer with apps already preinstalled (whether it be Samsung, Apple, etc.)- some you might be able to uninstall while others can only be disabled. When it comes to apps like that, only its app updates can be uninstalled & it'll rollback the app to its factory default state, which you can then proceed to uninstall. You can also clear its cache & its overall data. Without extra software (and possibly extra risks, depending on which method(s) are tried & skillsets, certain apps are just stuck on your device
