The App Store has many cool apps for the iphone like a calculator, messages, voice recorders and more. But the iphone already comes with many of these things, and after the 3.0 update, the iphone will come with its own a voice recorder.

I don't want to just use Apple's Apps,the main reason for the app store was to use other apps, but because Apps has their own pre-installed, i feel like i am forced to use them.

I don't use many of the pre-installed apps on my phone, So should i just accept what is given?

you can't remove the default apps.

Just move any unused apps to your last apps page to get them out of your way...

move the default apps you don't want to the last slot on your last page. when you fill up that page by moving another app to it, the "undeletable" apps will fall off the edge of the iphone universe.

i am told you can reload them or otherwise get them back if you like (as when you discover that without the redundant-seeming clock icon, you can't easily set alarms), but i have not needed to attempt this yet. i also thought the calculator was pretty useless, until i flipped it on it's side and it changes from a barebones adding machine to a scientific calculator. brilliant.

incidentally, there is an inexpensive little ap called iCatchall (.) which has a couple dozen small apps contained in one icon. saves some screen real estate.
