    Newbie question

    Hey, guys...new to the Droid forum and the phone itself. Came over from the Blackberry world.

    Anyway, how can I uninstall pre-installed programs, i.e. Corporate Calendar, Goggles?

    Thanks,
    T

    You can only uninstall pre-loaded apps if you're rooted.

    The OTA updates which is rumored now for 7/7 will not be rooted. Nothing that is sent OTA is rooted. If you want root you have to do it yourself.

    The version of 2.2 offered at MDW and also available here in our news section has root with it. So if you want 2.2 with root, that would be the way to go.
