    I was wandering if it's possible to remove preinstalled applications. I don't want things on there I'm never going to use

    dont think its possible to completely remove pre-installed apps. You can remove them from the home screens but thats about it

    You need to go to settings>applications>manage applications

    If you want to remove an app from the home screens, just hold it for a few seconds and drag it to the bottom of the screen til it turns red and let go.

    There has got to be a way to remove pre-installed apps.

    If not, so much for "FULLY CUSTOMIZABLE"

    I know where they are installed, but i dont know how to delete them. ;)

    If you use a file manager, they are located within the /system/app

    I'm not sure astro allows you to delete the files, but if there is a manager that can, if you remove them from that folder it "SHOULD" delete the app from the main section.

    *CAUTION* While I am sure they reside there, i do not 100% know the ramifications of removing them. So if you find a way to, do so under caution.

    Do this not work:
    You can remove unwanted third party applications from your Motorola Droid with these steps:
    1. From the main screen, press the Menu button.
    2. Tap Settings.
    3. Tap Applications.
    4. Tap Manage applications.
    5. Select the application you wish to remove.
    6. Tap Uninstall.


    I don't get my Droid until Monday, so I haven't been able to try it.

    Only works for apps you installed yourself. Does not show the apps that came with the phone

    OK here is an edit to my previous post. There is a file explorer in the app store called "EXPLORER" it's better then astro in my opinion, but go to the directory i stated and you CAN delete the file.. but i do not know if that would work of what will happen if you do.

    I'm sure that once you root the phone, you should be able to do pretty much anything you want. Of course, has anyone heard of that being done yet?

    I have the "explorer" app file manager, and can see where the OS apps are located and it will allow me to delete them, but seeing as i'm not 100% what happens if you do, i'm not going to.. lol.

    apps you download can be deleted by going to settings>applications>manage applications. you need root access to remove pre-installed apps and i dont think we'll be seeing a DROID root process for a few months. keep in mind methods for the sapphire(MT3G) and the dream(G1) wont work on this device.

    it only gives the the option to delete the apps but it wont actually let you due to the system being read only. you need the capabilty to remount the system as read/write to delete stock apps.
