    I think hold down on the widget and move to the bottom app tray to delete? Dont have my droid yet but I think thats right.

    Sometimes a "smartphone" is only as smart as its user.

    Hold your finger down on the widget (long press) then a garbage can will appear at the bottom of the screen where the menu slide usually is, drag it into the garbage can.

    If anyone's still reading this thread, I had the same problem with a google search widget and with a calendar widget. Here's my question: HOW THE HELL ARE WE SUPPOSED TO KNOW THIS?! I read the damn manual front to back and it's the most basic and simplistic thing EVER. Most of the stuff in there I figured out intuitively.

    It's got its quirks, but Android is a very slick and well-designed OS, once you get used to those quirks. In this case, I agree: my hands were positioned in such a way that they covered the bottom of the screen, so I couldn't see that it turned into a garbage bin.

    That being said, you DO now own a phone that's heavily Google-integrated. Use the power of Google as I did, and ask it what you need to know! I work in the IT field, and when customers call with questions like this (which is not in our job description, I politely tell them to Google it.

    From one of the many, many faqs in on this very forum.

    How do I remove widgets and icons?
    Long press it, then move to the app tray button which will then have a trash can icon on it.
    But, yeah, the easiest way is to google it. Heck you could even voice search on the droid if you'd rather not type...
