Is there a way to turn off the stock music player on Galaxy S3.....

....without having to go to application manager and force stopping it? It really annoys me just sitting there in the notifications bar, laughing at me.

Yeah, should have bought an iPhone.

should be able to stop it by changing the default music player app

Find a brick or large heavy object. Slam it into the phone until it stops making a noise.
Problem solved.

Still looking and having a play on my partners S2 as I can't see it being much different.

Edit: Just realised, are you on about closing the app or just stopping music?

Just closing the app altogether. All you can do is pause it, whereby it just stays in the notification bar. You have to go into apps manager and force stop it to remove it.

Deek, when music player is open, press the left soft key, there is an "end" option, job done

Within the app's settings is there a 'display in notification bar' option checked?

If it's the same as S3, go to settings, accessory, earphones, untick audio applications

This is why I told you to buy the S3 , but seriously, I don't know then, should be similar as it'll be ics 4.0.4 on your phone I imagine so don't know why it isn't there mate, sorry.

I know, was joking oO but as I said, you should have ics 4.0.4 on phone so based on that, it should be under settings, scroll down to system, accessory, then untick headphones, android 4.0.4 or even android 4.0.3 is universal on Samsung phones unless they have tweaked it for the Note that I don't know of.

If my parents wanted a smartphone I'd recommend them a iOS system as it works 'out of the box', which is perfect for them as they aren't computer literate. (I'm going to call **** on your Grandma using one though.)

However I am, so Android works for me. Different strokes for different folks...

As for being a 'toy for kids'... You really show yourself up there, you obviously haven't a clue.

It should be a toy for kids. It's an open OS system and the sooner UK children learn how to code for operating systems the better.

Of course, I come from the generation who spent time learning how to program a Sinclair Spectrum or a BBC B at home and school. So we now program the stuff you use...

We've had a lost generation who only 'know' how to use applications but not program, I'm glad that the Raspberry Pi and Arundino boards are as popular as the are now.

Give up the fanboy **** and get a open mind.

I agree with everything you say about Android but if there was a way to describe dga 'computer illiterate' would not be one of them, have you read the HP microserver thread. Pretty sure he is the one who will trigger the singularity and destroy us all. X)

Bit weird he is so anti Android though as I would have thought such an open and flexible mobile OS would give him a semi. (_;)
