    Pre-loaded apps are protected so won't let you delete them. If you don't have their widgets on the home screen and don't manually run them they should take any resources except space. To delete them you would need root access to the phone.

    so even the applications like IM and PEEP and all those we can't delete it without rooting the phone?

    adb shell
    $ su
    # mount -o rw,remount -t yaffs2 /dev/block/mtdblock3 /system
    # cd /system/app
    # ls

    then continue with # rm [insert filename here].apk and/or .odex to remove the app you want.
