    That I can not delete. Aside from using folders, all the default apps takes over a full page of icons...not that cool imo

    I think aside from phone, messages,camera, and contacts (aka phone functions), every other app should be able to be deleted if desired (so be able to not have compass, stocks, weather, notes, reminders, voice memos, calender, clock, calculator, maps, iTunes, Game Center, App Store, Newstand, mail and photos if you do not want them).

    Why apple makes these icons unremovable kinda sucks. You should be able to treat them as any other app

    Ya...I don't see the point of compass as it is built into Maps. I don't see the point of gyro as it never comes in my use. I don't see the point of NewsStand on an iPhone as the screen is too small. I don't see the point of Stocks and Weather as they are in NC. My 2¢.

    mostly you are right, but they'd have to offer the option to reinstall them through the appstore, so you shouldn't be able to delete the app store. And if they ever did this, they'd also leave iTunes (1 because it is the only way to get music onto the phone without syncing with a computer or iTunes match, and 2 because it generates them money)
