Deleting icons

I have read all of the help answers and I still can not get these to delete from my home page. With out appearing again.

I have dragged them to the trash bin and they do go, but then they appear again when I drag up that grey bar to show APS.

For instance I have some stuff  on there like, "corporate calendar". Well I have calendar as well. I do not need both. I think corporate came on the phone. But HOW TO GET IT OUT OF MY WAY??? . I am new and just do not get it. But I am so frustrated with this.. Can you help?

I think you are asking how to get rid of applications you don't use from the applications tab. If the application came pre-installed then you can't remove it. Or are you saying that shortcuts you deleted from your home screen keep reappearing?

Are you saying that the icon goes away from your home screen when you drag it to the trash but reappears on the home screen after you go to the apps drawer?  If so, then you do have an issue.  If what you're saying is they delete from the home screen but are still visible in the apps drawer, then you do not have a problem.  Deleting the icon from the home screen does not remove the program from the device.  You can remove Market apps from the device, but not the built-in apps.  (Corporate Calendar is a built-in app)

Yep, everyone is right.  You can't delete pre-installed apps.  It's a little aggravating, yes, but it's really not a big deal.  So there's an extra icon, oh well.  Use one of the many open-home programs (PandaHome, 91Home, Home++, etc.), you can create multiple screens (4-7), and put what you need on those screens, and you'll never even need the drawer.  If you just keep it as is, it's just an extra icon, no real big deal there.
