    Is it possible to remove the pre installed apps from my legend

    Apps such as peep / stocks / talk ect I simply wont use....or will i?

    According to the manual you keep your finger on it until you get a red ring around it and then drag it to the bottom of the screen to the delete bin

    Have tried this and it doesnt work??


    Help please and also what would people recommend to delete from the pre installed apps

    Not sure about how to delete preinstalled apps. Based on other general discussions regarding mobile phones in general, I've heard that this can only be done if you root the phone.

    Have you tried Settings -> Applications -> Manage Applications -> then try to remove it from there?

    The actions you described i.e. "keep your finger on it until you get a red ring around it..." is just to remove a widget or application shortcut from one of your (7) homescreens. It is not to delete the app (I believe).

    I wouldn't be surprised if removing something like peep would have a detrimental effect on FriendStream, which is possibly a reason for not allowing its removal.

    Therefore this part of my previous post likely applies: "Based on other general discussions regarding mobile phones in general, I've heard that this can only be done if you root the phone."

    Here's the Legend rooting link if the apps bother you so much: http://androidforums.com/htc-legend/68688-official-root-thread.html
