    You have to find that app in settings and choose uninstall. Dragging into the trash can just gets rid of icon on the homescreen.

    If you don't wont to keep going into your settings,there's Android Assistant, and it has several (14) use's. One of which is an uninstaller. It can also be moved to the SD card.

    Go to the android market then press the menu key and then a box comes up that says my apps touch it and a list of all your downloaded apps will come up just look for the one that you wont to delete touch that one and a window will come up that will say uninstall touch that and it will be gone if at some other time you would like to reinstall it you can from there.

    At the home screen, press menu -> settings -> applications -> manage applications

    Select the app from the list and press uninstall.
