    I understand that Verizon, Google and Android don't want us messing in the phone and removing their revenue producing programs. I'd just like to hide the icons (so what I use will fit on one screen) getting rid of Amazon MP3, Blockbuster, Latitude, Social Networking, etc, etc.

    Without rooting, can that be done?

    Are you talking about removing them from the home screens or from the app drawer?

    I'm sorry, I meant to be specific on the issue of WHERE I wanted to remove them ... from the applications page. I understand that I can "remove" apps from the home screenset by selecting and dragging to the trash can.

    BUT ... you have led me to a thought ... perhaps I can put all that I want on a home screen page ... I'll have to experiment.

    Thanks!

    I use Launcher Pro (home screen replacement) and it will hide the apps that it shows you in its app drawer. So, I've done exactly what you were inquiring about (without actually deleting or disabling the apps) [no root required].

    I'm sure the other launchers / home screen replacements do this too.

    Cheers!
