You can't get rid of the app unless you root the phone.

i've only just upgraded to a smartphone. i, too, hate the stupid facebook app, and it's constantly wanting to update, which i won't allow, but it's just an annoyance. so the phone has to be rooted to get rid of it? my model # is in my sig line.

cheers.
