I'm in complete shock that this post is still up! Vic, because I'm in the same boat as you, I stumbled upon this place because my efforts to find answers we're not gonna come from Verizon, Samsung and definitly this phones new custom/obfuscated browser despite my attempts. Eventually I took it into my own hands because my "device administrator" wouldn't speak up and now I'm stuck with a $1,500 phone that's unrootable and sadly not the same anymore. But yes, Mobile Device Management doesn't stop at the device itself, they takes over you're whole electronic/network infrastructure. At first I thought it was a hacker but my money was never touched. Aside from some helpful apps from the play store I ended up learning and running ADB. After running different commands to the phone and it returning the outputs it did is when I realized the actual enterprise that I'm up against. Honestly, the only way out is to completely start over. New phone, cards, accounts, because changing your passwords from a friends computer ain't gonna do $#!+. Gotta replace the router too. Here's where I'm disappointed. There's no warning before your privacy doesn't exist anymore it just happens and if you try to find help or answers your **bleep**. Ultimately, everything always reverts back to "This is the EULA you agreed upon." Again, gotta keep it short but just wanted to say Vic that you're not going crazy, and unless you're a developer/programmer, the few core enterprises behind the scene of this remote ambush will always be 10 steps ahead.
