    Nope.....can't do it

    Although the app BetterCut apparently will allow you to edit what is under the icons but not delete them

    Brock a better one to get is ABCorganizer. It stores the icons you like and changes the name you pick forever so if you get a new "home" or reset your phone or w/e you don't have to redo the whole setup. You can also delete the icon packs after you've set them all how you like. Takes up less room on your SD card

    Panda Home (and presumably the forthcoming Panda Home 2) will do this.

    I’ve been looking for something to do this since I first got my HTC Incredible. I use Multicon to put 2 apps in a 1x1 square at opposite corners without labels for most apps, but occasionally wanted an app to be easy to push on the fly so just wanted the one large app icon, but hate the labels underneath. Finally, someone created an app to do this. All you need is the free/lite version of Folder Organizer.

    Here is the link:
    http://market.android.com/details?id=com.abcOrganizer.lite&feature=search_result

    Longpress home screen. Add > Widget > Folder Organizer Item > Apps > Unclick “Show Text under Icon” at top > Scroll down and select your app > Done.

    This results in a nice app icon in 1x1 space with no label underneath and no black spot where the label would be – very nice and clean looking!

    FYI - this is using the HTC Sense UI but should work with any home screen.
