    Hopefully i have this in the correct category, if not then i apologise.
    Was just wondering, using SSH or DiskAid, if i deleted some original unused iPhone apps such as Stocks would this have any lasting effects other than the removal of the app.

    I didn't think they could be deleted (unless you did it from the file system?) but you can hide/unhide icons easy enough with sbsettings or just put them all in a folder with categories?

    yea i guess you technically can. I haven't done it before but it makes sense that you'd be able to in order to save room and have more HD space.

    My friend Charlie has a jailbroken 3g and has an app that allows u to place the icons in a stack in the dock... i'll find out the sources if you want?

    it wont remove it but it will move the icon.. :)

    You shouldn't try to mess with stock apps. I would just poof them if you don't want to see them. I have a sms replacement on my iphone (irealSMS) and I just poof the original stock sms.

    You can do what I did. Go into SBSSettings and hide the app icon from Springboard.

    To answer your question directly, no. There would be no side effects of SSH'ing into your phone and deleting those apps you don't use. My stocks and contacts apps have been gone from my phone for quite a while and I've seen no ill effects.
