Please, how can I delete non-orange apps from my San Diego phone?

Do you mean apps that you downloaded from the PlayStore? => settings => manage applications => scroll to the app you want to delete, click on it, then click on 'clear data/cache' (to get rid of any folders/files the app created), and then click on 'uninstall'.

You can also open the PlayStore, hit MENU, then My Apps. Find the app you want to get rid of and hit uninstall.

If you meant apps that are part of the OS/system... YOU can't uninstall them. You'll notice in "manage applications" that the 'uninstall' tab is greyed out, or missing.

Thank you so much - problem solved. I couldn't do it via 'settings' but managed it via playstore.

By the way: what do you think about the phone?

This is my first venture into the realms of smartphones. I had a very basic Nokia before. So I can't offer a very technical opinion (I'm 64!)
The phone seems quick. It has intel inside. However, the main drawback is that the Orange support people, though very willing, don't seem to know anything about it - and there isn't a decent fliptop carry case for it yet. There is still the usual problem of unerasable apps which came pre-installed. I've also had a terrible problem in that my BT emails were arriving in the inbox and then promptly disappearing into the recycle folder. Very annoying. I'm having to divert them via Googlemail, which seems to work. Both Orange and BT denied responsibility, though.

that email thing sounds like an odd software glitch?!
Have you tried looking for cases for "lava xolo x900"? That is the non-Orange name for that phone ;)

I've about had it with glitches - my gin consumption has rocketed.
Thanks for the tip about the case. I'll check it out.
