    I know how to add favorites (contacts,Apps) to home screen, but how do you delete them from your screen.

    Click and hold on a blank part of the home screen to add thing, or drag them from the shade window (the bottom one you flick up). To remove a widget or app, click and hold on the icon and drag it to that bottom shade, it will display a red trash can thing.

    Right... I must have missed the part about removing them from the menu, I already know how to remove them from the home screen.

    1. To remove an app you need to go to settings -> applications -> Manage apps.. it will show all installed apps and you can select one and uninstall it.

    2.Another way to uninstall apps, that were installed from market place:
    Marketplace>Menu button>Downloads>
    This will give you a list, select the one you want to remove. Uninstall will show up on the bottom-right of the screen.

    This will completely remove the app.

    Your home screens are the 3 screens that are always up. The slide up drawer> Think of it as your start menu on a PC. It holds everything. While your home screen is like your desktop and is just shortcuts.

    This should help.............
