    Oh ok, no worries. Are you wanting to remove the preinstalled apps? If so, you must be rooted to do that :)

    Added Apps

    No, just apps I added when I first got the phone and was bored.

    Oh ok. Just go to Settings > Applications > Manage Applications, select the app(s) you want to uninstall, and select Uninstall

    I am trying to delete unused apps. I go to Settings/Apps. As an example, there is an app called NFL Mobile which I would never use, and never installed myself. When I click on it, my option is "Uninstall Updates". I don't want to uninstall updates, i want to uninstall the app itself. The phone then asks me if i want to "replace this app with the factory version"? Again, how do i simple remove apps like this i don't want? Thanks in advance for any help.

    If you delete a preinstalled app it may cause problems with performance of the phone. All you need to do is disable the app. Disabling an app removes it from your app list and you not get update notifications for an app that had been disabled. Only way of deleting an app is to root your phone. I'm not sure if you're rooted. But the same applies with preinstallled or system apps.

    No, i am not rooted. I don't see an option for "disable" either. Perhaps i need help understanding how to do that instead of deleting the app.

    I'm not sure why you can not see disable? I just checked mine and I can see on some apps(system apps) has disable button. On home screen hit menu, manage apps, and you should see all the apps on your phone. You should be able to select and app and it will open and from there you can uninstall disable the app. Your system apps are the only ones you can disable. All other apps are ones you installed and have to uninstall to get rid of them.
