I am having trouble removing apps. I go to "All apps", touch and hold on the app I want to delete until the front page comes up with the trash can saying remove. I drag it over top of it and let go.

I have just swapped from an iPhone 3G to the Desire and am getting stuck whilst familiarising myself with the phone (and making it similar to my iPhone). I have put an unlock password on the phone but it is a pain as it requires alpha and numeric so I want to go back to using the visual password. Problem is I cannot find how to get the phone to swap back to using a visual p/w. Anyone able to help Whilst here is there an app out there to wake up the phone when you press any key and/or have the iPhone keypad pop up to unblock the phone? Other than that it is an impressive bit of kit and better than the iPhone in many ways but flawed in some basic areas such as the pathetic speaker. It nearly went back when I first heard it and seems a surprising oversight given it is obviously aimed at the social end of the market.View 13 Replies View Related
I have had this same problem happen twice to me on 2 different phones on 2 different Verizon accounts!
The password screen locks and when it asks for the user name and password it states invalid user name / password!
Is this a known problem since when I called and talked to both Verizon and HTC the only thing they could tell me was to do a hard reset and they weren't aware of this problem?
Is there any way to remove pre-installed programs?
For example, the following programs were pre-installed:
And maybe some others.
I've just tried:
Settings | Applications | Manage Apps
And noticed there's not always an option to Uninstall on these and some others.
Is it possible to remove, delete, uninstall, or get them off the device?
Is there any way to remove the pre-installed Sprint programs?
Are there some "core apps" or "core programs" that can't be removed?
A brief search on this matter on related threads seems to indicate only on "rooted" phones.
I'm new to android but just used the guides at this forum to root my LG Optimus V. I was wondering if now that I have root there is a way to install a boot password similar to the one I have on my computer. Before it loads the operating system, the BIOS asks for a password. Is there any similar functionality for android?
Also, is this possible on other devices even if it is not on mine? It's one of my favorite laymen security measures.

I want to get rid of the default barcode scanner that comes with android 2.1 but it isn't letting me uninstall it.
When I go to the manage applications under settings it doesn't show up in the list. but it still appears (and works) from my standard application window.
When I go to appbrain and try to uninstall it says, "uninstall not successful".
I tried using the quickuninstall app (as suggested in another thread) but get the same "uninstall not successful" message.
I downloaded an icon pack and decided I did not want it anymore so I went and uninstalled it... but it told me that it did not work and now it shows up as installed on my phone still in the market but I can't choose install or open, they are grayed out...View 3 Replies View Related
I am running a customer Jager ROM and it is great, however I am unable to uninstall some included programs from the ROM? Is this normal? Since being rooted, I thought there was a way to uninstall any program from the phone? For example K-9 mail and mobile defense are built into the ROM. When I try to uninstall them, the option to uninstall them is grayed out? Any way at all to uninstall these programs directly from the phone itself? Any root apps that can make this happen?View 3 Replies View Related

I swear, I did a lot of searching before posting... The best resource I found was this: xda-developers - View Single Post - Apps that are OK to remove with root But does that require toast's root method?

It seems to be common practice for service providers to bog down their newest phones with bloatware. I've read some information on these forums that seems to indicate that the Evo comes with a lot of sprint programs installed, IE bloatware. I'm a current blackberry user and one of the perks of having one is that I was able to remove all of tmobiles useless, bloatware apps from day one so I could use the phone's memory on programs that I wanted. Now, my question is, is there is a simple uninstall feature that would allow me to unistall programs like sprint tv, sprint nav, etc? Or would I have to root the phone to be able to uninstall those apps?View 23 Replies View Related

I introduced myself as a "digital dog" barking for "Apps! And so I quickly filled my Hero until getting a notice saying it's too full with only 15MB left. Trouble is, I'd like to add even more. So is there a way to make room in my phone (not my SD card) other than uninstalling? I don't think it's possible to move apps to my spacious card and link them, right? I'm still going through the apps to see which ones work and fit into my life, and don't want to uninstall any just yet. Is there another way?View 10 Replies View Related
I know how to uninstall keyboards that show up in the apps list like Better Keyboard or Swype or SlideIT.you uninstall just like a regular app.The PROBLEM I have is this:I don't know WHERE I downloaded the keyboard (was a developer forum or a site like Good and EVO or Android Central or something) but someone had available the "Android Keyboard"it is NOT the stock EVO keyboard but the keyboard that you might recognize from Android NON-EVO devices.Anyway, downloaded and installed the apk file a while ago and don't want/need the keyboard installed any more.So I go to look for the app name "Android Keyboard" or something similar in my app list and can't find it.Swype is there, SlideIT is there all ready for uninstalling but can't find the Android keyboard app.View 3 Replies View Related

I have some Android market feedback for my app Hire*A*Droid where users complain that they are unable to uninstall the application. Here's two I have so far (about 10 days apart):
janelle: I uninstalled this app, but its still showing that its
installed under my downloads. What can i do ?
valerie: It's frozen I can't open or delete it.
I have downloaded LauncherPro and Widget Locker. So, everytime I hit home, I get a choice of those two. I don't know why I got Widget Locker, I can't even figure out what it does.
How do I stop it from showing up as an option? I don't want to uninstall it, since I paid for it, and someday I may decide I want it.

We are plannig to write a new music application from scratch. Also we want to uninstall the built-in music application to ensure only our application resides on the phone. adb ls /data/app command doesn't list built-in applications. So, I am unable to uninstall the built in music application without knowing its name. So, I am getting a feeling like built in applications uninstallation is handled in different way.View 15 Replies View Related

My Hero suddenly changed keyboards on me tonight to something called Simeji (explainer below). I would like to uninistall this thing as I'm suspicious as to how it got there.
Going to settings --> Applications --> Manage Applications I can click on Simeji and there is no uninstall option. I can force stop it but it starts right back up.
I didn't download it, maybe part of an update? This is smelling very much like malware/virus. Any other Hero users have this app? I would feel better if I at least new it came with an update and not some other nasty way.

I downloaded a version of Swype from a website (can't remember which) that was apparently just a trial which recently ran out. It coincided with Swype sending me their beta version (I had signed up to get it on their site) so I figured I would just download that. Unfortunately, it won't install because there's already another version of Swype on my phone. I tried QuickUninstaller but not surprisingly it doesn't show up in there. Any idea how to get it off my phone so I can install the newer one?View 2 Replies View Related
I hope this hasn't been asked before. Here is the situation. I bought a paid app (Droid DJ) and everything was fine until I was notified that an upgrade was available. When I upgraded, the app not longer worked on my Nexus One. I contacted the developer and they immediately fixed the problem and issued a new version. The problem is that the Android Market hasn't notified me of the new upgrade. I am hesitant to uninstall the app then download it again (I don't want to have to pay again). Does anyone know how this works?View 3 Replies View Related
