    I want to delete the Gmail app because I hate it. For some reason emails sent to me have started appearing in Gmail and not in Samsung's regular email app. Why is that?

    Your phone is connected to your Google account, which automatically adds it to the GMail app.

    Well is there a way to delete the Gmail app from the phone? It doesn't show up in the list of apps when you go to Manage Applications.

    I would advise turning off notifications in the gmail app rather than trying to delete it.

    I'm pretty sure it's tied to your google account which activates the phone and allows you to use the market and would likely have terrible side effects if deleted.

    It cant be deleted unless you are rooted.


    To turn off notifications open up the gmail app and go into its settings. Alternatively you could go into the main phone settings, and in accounts and sync you can just make gmail stop checking for new e,mails
