    Hi everyone,

    Like many of you i've just got my Desire today.

    I got it from Orange, and as a result it's bundled with loads of applications I dont want e.g. a few demo games, orange maps...etc

    How do I remove these. If I go to applications I can see the app there, but if I tap it, there is no option to delete

    You need root access to remove apps which came as part of the ROM.

    You cant delete those, you can however install the generic firmware, the one that comes on an unlocked phone. There are guides to do it if you want, but most just stick to default and forget about those apps.
