    So I wanna uninstall stuff that came with the device. It is an unlocked device, not from any telecom commpany.

    I wanna uninstall teeter for example and Peep and Stock as I do not use these apps.

    I think you need to root the phone to do that but not 100% sure

    You need to be root user, and you can remove without installing roms via root explorer or adb shell

    iPhone wont allow you to uninstall iTunes etc.

    Blackberry won't let you remove the email client.

    Windows Mobile wont let you uninstall it's browser.

    Every smartphone OS has some apps built into the ROM which they wont let you touch.

    Sorry, but that's not analogous. My Droid Incredible won't let me uninstall Teeter, a stupid game. It's understandable that a smartphone might want to keep basic smartphone functions like email, browsing or dialing. But a game?

    Teeter is part of the rom. Why? I don't know. You can uninstall things added on afterwards but that's it.

    Unfortunately it's going to sit in your app drawer annoying you. At least thats all it's doing though

    If you switch to LauncherPro, you can the hide the apps you don't want in the app drawer. Out of sight, out of mind :)
