    Hi

    If it was a pre installed app it is stored in part of the phones memory that you cannot access unless you have rooted your phone. If you have android V4 onwards you may be able to disable the app. This stops it from running and stops it from appearing in the app drawer - it does not however release the memory used.

    from home screen
    menu button
    manage applications
    All tab at the top (it oens on the Downloaded tab)
    scroll to the app and press "disable".

    The app will then appear right at the bottom of the list in the all tab and can be re-enabled if you wish.
