The stocks app came with the phone, but I never look up stocks...can I get rid of the app somehow? It's nothing more than eye-sore on my home screen.

Thanks!

All apps that came with the phone are not removable. Just move the ones you don't want/use to another page.

Step 11
Just press down and hold on any icon on your screen.

Step 2
This will create a wiggle effect to the icons. This allows you to click an x to remove the icon or move the icon to a different location.
Step 33
Simply hold an icon and drag it to a location to move it. Once you are through with the icons, press the bottom button of your iPhone to cancel out of the wiggle effect.

Wow an eyesore haha! I like it being their and can check my "virtual" Apple Stock and Microsoft stock hehe ;)
-IMHO the iPhone seems empty without it just looking at a bunch of "black" empty space, like it would always be missing something ya kno :(

See when I get my iPhone I wanna keep the front main screen totally "stock" or default cause its "clean" looking and uncluttered, and then anything I happen to download such as games I will put on the second page :)

I also wish I could remove unwanted apps, I have no use for stocks either. With the old Customize you use to be able to hide your unwanted icons, not sure if you still can, I just moved it to page 3.

Like is their a way that if you were able to delete the apps, you could get them back?:eek:
-Like re-download them or store them somewhere and load it back on and everything still work fine?
