Default How do I get rid of "stock" apps?

So some idiot thinks it'd be cool if I had apps like Corporate Calendar, Amazon MP3, blah blah blah. Is there a way I can delete apps that just came on my phone so my menu is not 10 pages long? I hate clutter. Thanks.

On somewhat the same note, the Verizon rep says to download Advanced Task Killer. Even when I kill some of these things they are immediately re-starting up. Then I thought I read somewhere that I shouldn't have ATK on my Android phone. Anyone wanna share the real deal? Thanks again.

Just do some reading in the forum here. Plenty of posts about "rooting" the Ally, uninstalling apps and more.

Root then load TiBu and use it to uninstall the offending apps.

Android doesn't "technically" need a Task Killer. But I keep one installed just in case I run into a badly coded app that doesn't close properly.

Somebody asked this question yesterday. Should read the forums better. Removing stock and downloaded apk's. That quick little guide assumes that you are rooted.

Thank you all for your help. I read 2+ pages of the Ally forum and the Apps forum and didn't find anything. So this may be a silly question, but I can only do all of this if I root my phone, is that right?

For those that do not want to delete the apk but move it to your sdcard here's a quick guide.

Android Ally Tips Section

Look at the Removing System APK's section.

That will move the apk to your sdcard instead of deleting it.
