I downloaded Dropbox but want to eliminate it completely. It seems not possible. Only disable seems possible.

Maybe because I now have a million thumbnails (all my pics and files from my Dropbox account) somewhere in the phone memory. I can not find out where and how to eliminate them..... Or are they loaded from Dropbox each time I use Gallery??? I did find a way to disable them in the Gallery though.... Do I have to "Factory" reset the phone and start the installation from scratch to get rid of the Dropbox issue???

Well, I find out why you can't uninstall it its because you're not rooted ! I am a rooted user.... I am afraid but until or unless you've rooted your device you can't uninstall it.

if ur device is rooted

try the app link2sd

this app was made to transfer files frm internal storage to sd but it also supports system app uninstallations

also app manager 3 also does this. if you haven't moved it to your SD card yet you'll find it under movable just long press it and choose the uninstall option

Because samsung add Dropbox as system build-in application, so you can't uninstall it without root your phone
