    Just got the new HTC Incredible. Awesome phone and this forum has already been a huge help, so I figured I'd join and ask my first question.

    The phone of course came with some apps already installed. I went to uninstall them, but it doesn't show up. Is there a way to do it with out getting all into moving files and all that stuff?

    I basically want to get rid of Friend Stream and the Desk Clock (since the other app, Clock, has the desk clock and is the same thing, just a different default setting when you open it).

    I'd like to maybe ditch the GMail app too, because the Mail app is set up to my gmail and does everything I want it to do.

    Any easy solutions or am I stuck with it?

    You would need to root your Incredible. Unfortunately there is no way to root the Inc yet.

    not until phone is rooted

    friend stream is pretty sweet, imho. there isn't a decent alternative on android, atm.

    and the gmail app offers push with the stock mail app does not.

    Also,

    I accidentaly deleted my google calendar thing off my screen and can't find it again in the 'Add to Home'.

    Anyone know where that's at? All I see is the stock calendar.


    Never mind, figured out what I was doing.
