A few of the apps that have been preinstalled in my phone are of no use to me and they are taking up memory space. Is it possible to uninstall them or remove them from the phone?How can this be done? Extra apps like a few games, movie software which I never use, weather app, e.t.c, I tried deleting them but a message appears saying that other apps will not function properly if this be removed. Can anything be done about it?

Hi Gabriel,
The steps to remove preinstalled apps from the phone are as follows:
1) Download the Android Terminal emulator software from the Android official website and install it
2) Click 'Start', select 'Run'
3) Type 'cmd', the command prompt will open
4) Enter the command 'mount -o remount' and 'rw -t yaffs2/dev/block/mtdblk3/system'
5) The list of apps installed in the system type the command 'ls/system/app', press enter
6) To remove the specific app, type the command 'ls/system/app', press enter
7) The app is removed from the system
8) Restart the system and the app will not be visible

It would be better if you first check that the app you want to uninstall can be removed simply. This can be done by going to ‘settings’, click on ‘apps’, select the app that you want to uninstall and click on the ‘uninstall’ button. If you face a problem in installing the app, then there is fair chance that you will be able to disable it. But disabling the app doesn’t mean that you free up some of the space on your phone but it only hides the app.
