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

    Hmmmm....thanks for that. I will take a look and see what I can find. I'm sure there is a way to do it.

    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.

    yes i actually tried it with explorer, astro, and a few others i cant remember. i have been trying to get rid of that damn verizon visual voicemail. if you have had any luck with removing apps please let me know how. i would recommend you try removing an app that isnt google because in my experience with the dream and the sapphire it will cause the google.acore to stop functioning. try deleting the stock facebook app or something to test it yourself.
