    Check with the provider of the hack you used to install these applications and associated icons. These weren't provided by Apple nor does Apple support adding/removing icons from the iPhone's desktop or Home screen.

    I'm not sure you can remove the Apple icons. :I

    There is no way supported by Apple to do what you are asking.

    Not without using a hack. As already provided, Apple does not support adding/removing stock applications and associated icons from the iPhone's desktop or Home screen.

    At this time you are unable to change the springboard on the iPhone. All icons and the black backdrop are set. Hopefully this will change with a future update but no one here can say when or even if it will ever be an option. Sorry for the bad news but we are all stuck with a "stock related" icon that we don't use and wish could be removed. Go to the Feed Back link and tell them what you would like to see in the future.

    Good Luck
