    iPhone expert Joshua Dubois demonstrates how to delete applications from the iPhone 3G.

    Josh Dubois: Hi, I am Josh Dubois. Today we are talking about the 3G iPhone and the Software Release 2.0.

    The application star one live you probably downloaded, there are many free applications as you could, and some paid ones, and put them all on your phones, and it makes it really hard to navigate. So you are going to want to get rid of some of these probably at some point. Let's say we want to get rid of alarm. Hold down at the bottom on the icon until they start shaking and an X appears on the top left. Hit the X of the application that you want to delete. Go ahead and confirm to delete all of its data, and it will delete it.

    Now be careful, because these buttons are pretty touchy, and if you accidentally hit something you may delete something you don't want to. Then you want to go ahead and hit the home button to complete that delete. You may have noticed that when you re-sync your iPhone, that some of these applications show back up. The reason is probably because, in sync applications you have all instead of selected. Go ahead and sync only the applications that you want on your iPhone here, and you won't have any applications magically reappear.
