    Welcome to the Android Forums!

    Which apps are you attempting to delete? Apps that came with the phone? Or apps that you downloaded through the Android market?

    Apps from the market need to be deleted through App Drawer -> Settings -> Applications. Apps that came with the phone have to be deleted through rooting the phone and freezing or deleting the source APK file.

    Welcom to the forums glad to have you here. I don't have the phone but if its comparable to mine moving apps to the trash just removes them from the location there were in not actually deleting the app itself.
