    Probaly not but it's a waste of space. I don't use it , never looked at it, don't care for the stocks. So anyway to delete it ? Thanks

    ouch.


    anyway.

    if you jailbreak and install SBSettings you have the option to Hide Icons (in which i hide Stocks and iTunes + a few others) OR add icons that "dont deserve a spot" on the springboard to a secondary dock you can open via the app.

    Yes.

    If you are Jailbroken, you can essentially do anything. Jailbreak, navigate to the Applications folder of your filesystem via SSH, and delete the app you don't want. Simple.

    Yes we do understand that's why it was suggested you jailbreak. If you're not willing to do that the best you can do is put it on the last page.

    I doubt the stocks app takes more than 300KB of space. That's less than 1 picture taken stored in your camera roll which average around 400KB each.

    He said:

    To me, since he is referencing that it might not be taking up a lot of space, that indicates that he's talking about storage space. Why else would he mention that? Every single icon takes the same amount of screen real estate.
