    Go to shell (from cmd->adb shell or directly through a terminal)
    #
    #cd data
    #cd app
    #cd ls
    You will get a list of installed application with the complete package name of the package containing the main activity. e.g com.company.product.apk
    #rm com.company.product.apk

    data is read write by user system in group system

    drwxrwx--x system system 2010-03-13 16:39 data

    When you get a shell from adb you are neither.

    uid=2000(shell) gid=2000(shell) groups=1003(graphics),1004(input),1007(log),1011(adb),3001(net_bt_admin),3002(net_bt),3003(inet)

    So, you can't cd into data to remove the .apk files.

    It would have to be rooted first.

    This will not work without root. Those apps are locked by AT&T; trhe simple command
    Code (Text):
    1.  
    2. adb uninstall com.motorola.AttHotSpotLocator
    3.  
    should uninstall the hotspot locator fails. It works on apps that you have installed, but not the pre-installed ones

    I have better cut installed and when I typed
    Code (Text):
    1.  
    2. adb uninstall com.betterandroid.bettercut
    3.  
    It uninstalled bettercut
