    I think hold down on the widget and move to the bottom app tray to delete? Dont have my droid yet but I think thats right.

    Hold your finger down on the widget (long press) then a garbage can will appear at the bottom of the screen where the menu slide usually is, drag it into the garbage can.

    If anyone's still reading this thread, I had the same problem with a google search widget and with a calendar widget. Here's my question: HOW THE HELL ARE WE SUPPOSED TO KNOW THIS?! I read the damn manual front to back and it's the most basic and simplistic thing EVER. Most of the stuff in there I figured out intuitively.

    It's got its quirks, but Android is a very slick and well-designed OS, once you get used to those quirks. In this case, I agree: my hands were positioned in such a way that they covered the bottom of the screen, so I couldn't see that it turned into a garbage bin.

    That being said, you DO now own a phone that's heavily Google-integrated. Use the power of Google as I did, and ask it what you need to know! I work in the IT field, and when customers call with questions like this (which is not in our job description, I politely tell them to Google it.

    From one of the many, many faqs in on this very forum.

    But, yeah, the easiest way is to google it. Heck you could even voice search on the droid if you'd rather not type...

    Which is EXACTLY why I'm here. I guess I'm just frustrated because I'm a little old school in thinking that these things should be written somewhere. Because otherwise, the simple thinking is that this is a trial and error phone. Who wants that? Thank god for the internet. This is my new home until I figure this darned piece of metal out. God I feel old.
