    I have given up on the useless apps and now use the mobile site. How can I uninstall either or both of these apps?

    You can't uninstall Facebook for HTC sense, but the other one did you not download from the market?

    The other one is default installed into sense.... you cant remove it without root... (only uninstall updates)

    This is what's confusing me....so they are BOTH pre-installed? I can't use the uninstall on either of them.

    Or you could download and install official gingerbread update, which doesn't have facebook installed, you have to install it from the market.

    Thanks for the replies. I'm seriously considering rooting the phone so I can get all the apps currently on the phone onto the SD card. The lack of memory is driving me crazy. However it seems very daunting to root the phone and it's not helped by the myriad of ways to do this with no-one able to explain the safest and easiest method. I am hoping that a colleague of mine may volunteer to do it for me as he's rooted a few HTC's in the past.

    I guess I'll clear the FB cache and leave it dormant.

    The official update is not vanilla Gingerbread, it includes Sense. Does it not work with HTC Sync?

    Have a look at the rooting FAQ, which you can find by following the red link in my sig (takes you to the root forum sticky thread "all about rooting").

    There are actually only 2 sensible ways of rooting a Desire: unrevoked or revolutionary (for people who've applied the official Gingerbread update only revolutionary works). If you want to keep the current ROM but remove system apps then you may as well use revolutionary, which fully unlocks your system storage and allows you to just delete things. It can be done without, but this makes it much simpler. If you just intend to load a custom ROM then either will do.

    Both are rather simple to use. If you use Windows there's some faffing with drivers before you can run it. But once that's done, it's a case of plug the phone in, run the tool, one click to confirm you want to procede, and that's it.

    It would probably be more appropriate to move a longer discussion to the root subforum. The key thing is to read the rooting FAQ first, and to take note in particular of the stuff about "erase sizes" to ensure you install the correct custom recovery for your handset. It's straightforward enough, but it's best to understand it first, in order to avoid problems that might arise through overlooking some important detail (like the one above).

    It's also good to know why you want to root - rooting in itself doesn't change very much, just gives you the options to do other things.

    I have updated to Gingerbread via the official HTC method and was amazed at how much extra space there was until updates to standard apps started to install. So I too have been pruning apps and I actually find that the Web-based facebook method works very well. I have uninstalled the updates to GMail and Facebook, and a few others. I now just have enough memory on my phone. Apart from the tight memory issue I still think the Desire - even after 18 months, is a brilliant phone.

    Just a sidenote here: I did as suggested and uninstalled all the updates to the FB app, cleared the cache in both FB apps and released a further 13mB of internal memory. At least that's a start. I will have a look at the rooting as suggested above and see how I feel. :confused:
