    im looking for a way to remove some of the pre installed apps off my new droid x, like the amazon and block buster crap, that i will never use, ive seen some info on it but since the x is new and im not very familiar with smart phone operating systems i was wondering if someone else could give me the step by step on how to do it. or a link to a guide that tells me how.

    From home screen: MENU > Settings > Applications > Manage Applications

    Tap the application and click uninstall.
    Or get an unistaller app from the market. It makes it a lot easier.

    Hey, I'd like to know how to do it too! :thinking:

    You can find those pre-installed apps through Settings -> Applications -> Manage applications, then tapping menu -> Filter and selecting all. You can change settings of the pre-installed apps, but can't uninstall them. :( Anyone knows how to do that?

    Can't get any app to uninstall the pre-installed apps. I especially detest Blockbuster and want it off my phone. Any help?

    You can not remove any pre installed apps like the Amazon and the blockbuster..You have to root ur phone to be able to uninstall those apps.

    That's an interesting thing to say. I could rephrase that as "You cannot do that, unless you can do that." So the real question is, what's the easiest way to root the phone...

    Go to the App Market, install the blockbuster app. It will warn you that it will replace the existing version, you say ok. Once installed, go to manage applications and ...uninstall. poof - gone.

    I tried downloading Blockbuster from the apps market to 'update' it in order to delete the pre-installed app. It does NOT work. You cannot delete these factory-installed apps.
