    I want to get rid of the default barcode scanner that comes with android 2.1 but it isn't letting me uninstall it.

    When I go to the manage applications under settings it doesn't show up in the list. but it still appears (and works) from my standard application window.

    When I go to appbrain and try to uninstall it says, "uninstall not successful".

    I tried using the quickuninstall app (as suggested in another thread) but get the same "uninstall not successful" message.

    Any ideas what I can do to get rid of this stupid app?

    Thanks very much in advance.

    If it's a stock app, it's not going to be "uninstallable". You'd have to root to get rid of it.

    Ah, thanks.

    As it's a brand new phone I guess I'll just have to live with the app being on the phone since I don't want to risk screwing something up by rooting it. :(
