    Deleting Icons

    Hey everyone new to the whole droid experience (former blackberry user) was wondering why I can remove some applications on my droid... like blockbuster, city id and a few others... I See them under installed apps but remove app is grayed out and wont let me delete it. Also is there a way to customize your menu screen move icons around where u want them? They seem to be in ABC order. Any help would be much appreciated.

    The app drawer is always alphabetical. You can only remove "bloat" apps if you decide to root your phone. If you use the home replacement app "launcher pro" you can, however, hide apps you don't use.

    Rooting simply means gaining "root access". Kind of like admin priveleges on a windows computer. It allows you to do everything from running custom ROMs to overclocking to wireless tethering. And Launcher Pro is an alternative launcher (which I highly recommend) that can be downloaded in the Market

    Rooting has many benefits, but it's not without risks. Definitely read up on the topic to find out if it's something you would be interested in. There are many threads all over this forum about what it is, what it allows you to do, and what can go wrong if done incorrectly.

    How are you liking your phone do far?

    In short, yes. Play with the phone stock for awhile. Download launcher pro and do some customizations, play with icons, wallpapers, apps, etc. You can always decide to root once you're more comfortable.

    Just download the Launcher Pro free app and play around with it. If you love and want more features, you can always get the paid version
