    Press the icon, the bottom tab will turn into a garbage can. Drag and drop the icon to the tab.

    Hold down on the icon for about 2-3 seconds and when the yellow background disappears, the icon will "lift" and drag it down to the bottom of the screen to the tab where you will now see a trash can icon. The icon will also turn red when you get it to the trash can and voila.

    If you're trying to delete them from the total "Application" screen (when you drag the arrow up), I don't believe you can do that. At least, I've found no way to do so.

    Yes. You can only delete them from the screen that first shows when you unlock the phone. You can't delete them from the full application list.

    You can't delete applications that were pre-installed on the phone. You can only delete what you add.

    If you install PandaHome, a home replacement app, it will let you hide the apps
    that are in the application drawer. If you ever need them again you can unhide them.

    It also lets you have more than 3 home pages. I use 1 page for customized folders.
    When ever I download a new app, I drag a short cut from the app drawer to the appropriate folder.
    I go in PandaHome options and hide the icon in the app drawer. It really helps to keep the app drawer decluttered.

    Settings > Applications > Manage Applications

    Select the App and click Unistall, then OK

    It's the same way as you would delete any app that wasn't pre-installed on your phone.
