    If I'm not mistaken, you can't do that with the preinstalled stuff.

    i think if you use the Bender file app and navigate to the file you might be able to delete it from there. I haven't tried it with pre-installed apps, but thats the way I uninstalled a file i couldn't remove otherwise.

    This is like getting a AOL pre installed on your computer and not being able to remove it. There has to be a way!

    ...which is impossible to navigate to on the phone (with ASTRO) because you don't have the proper privledges to mess with /data/app. Any other ideas?

    Downgrade to RC29 this will give you root access and will allow you to delete the apps...
