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

So this may be dumb but how do you delete apps youu download

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.

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

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.
