    You could ssh into the iPhone and delete it with the rm command

    Which would only work if the iPhone was jailbroken...
    Just move the app to a different page and don't look at it.
    :eek:

    SSH stands for secure Shell
    RM is the remove command from a secure shell...

    basically you open up the command line and login to your phone.
    like so: (this will not work on your phone, it is just to demonstrate...)

    To do this you have to jailbreak (hack) your phone.
    a lot of trouble to go through just to get rid of the stocks app. A little dangerous is you do not know what you are doing.

    Just move the stocks app to a different screen and forget about it. :cool:

    you could always ssh in and do an "rm -vf" command, that would sure get rid of it :)



    (DO NOT actually use that command, it will wipe all data and programs from everywhere. It's just a joke)
