    Like the title says, what the hell is with the Orange apps/games that wont go away doing on my phone. How do I remove them without rooting. Its a brand new branded Orange Desire.

    You can either debrand with a generic RUU or root and remove the apps.

    Since there is no Orange RUU to return to Orange branded, any faults you get with the phone afterward cannot be reported to Orange, although HTC may still accept generic rom handsets.

    Being a gay man, I'm disappointed that I kind find any gay games. I was hoping for 'bum tetris' or 'sexy abs scrabble' but sadly absent. Let me know if you find any, since all I can see is a branding problem...

    You have an Orange talk plan, not an Orange branded phone. Mobiles and Carphone Warehouse sell unbranded HTC Desires, with the vanilla Android operating system. You're lucky! :D

    Launcher Pro allows you to hide apps so that they aren't visible in the app drawer.

    If you prefer Sense then see DanFrance's post above.

    Yep, I would try Launcher Pro and just hide the orange apps that way, its easy ... if you dont fancy rooting or putting on a generic RUU.

    I removed my comment because it no longer makes sense in response to the edited original post.

    My apologies and thanks to the mods for their responses - my reaction was to the offensive nature of the original post and not knowing where the lines are drawn.

    Just a reminder.... there's a guide in the Forum Rules to what terms are or aren't acceptable, so there's no excuse for getting it wrong. Also, "use search" is not an helpful answer to a question. Again, see the Rules for guidance.
