If you go to your Settings, Applications, and hit the Menu button, you can list All. Each one has an uninstall button if it can be uninstalled. Be careful and good luck.

Just took my own advice, nothing that I wanted to uninstall could be. Like Amazon Mp3...I use an ipod, so wouldn't ever buy on the Droid. But can't uninstall it. Your rooters (hackers) can, I bet, but they're playing in a whole 'nuther league.

you cant do it on a stock rom the only roms that ive seen that you have the option to remove these apps are some from the sholes info team and pete had one out also. but for those you have to be rooted and run their custom rom

Download Terminal Emulator

enter the following:
su
mount -o remount,rw -t yaffs2 /dev/block/mtdblock4 /system
cd /system/app
rm com.amazon.mp3.apk
rm CorpCal.apk
mount -o ro,remount -t yaffs2 /dev/block/mtdblock4 /system

I do not know the name of the rest but if you open Astro
On the top next to the Home button hit Up
Now open System
Then app
You will see a list of the apps that are installed in the system. Write the name down and delete the same way as Amazon and CorpCal.

Corporate Calendar is CorpCal.apk
Wonder if Pete renamed it? I am running V6.
Worked for me.

yeah CorpCal.apk didn't work. Its ok i got some out. Wish, maybe there is a way to clean up the slide out (whats it called?) so there isn't so many items listed. Be nice to create a folder and drop things int there.
