Default Delete pre-installed apps?

Please Login to Remove!

Is there a way to delete pre-installed apps like facebook, myspace, google chat, etc? They show up in my applications folder, but not on my applications list in settings. I didn't see anyway on desktop manager to do it.

Thanks.

they are not installed on the device but are links to the install - if you delete them they will probably come back - best to hide them from view - highlight the icon - menu button - choose Hide

Many of them, like Facebook, are pushed to your device by your carrier. You can delete them in Options > Advanced Options > Service Books, but they'll probably come back quickly. Best to leave them, but hide the icon or move it into a sub-folder like Applications.
