To delete unwanted apps, just hold down your finger on any app icon for a few seconds. The icons should start to shake, and a black "X" will appear in the top left corner of the apps.

This black "X" should appear over some apps.
Just tap on the X and confirm that you want to delete the app, and it will be removed.
You can reinstall it here:
Download and install the app, enter your gmail and password ***** follow on screen prompts.
You can also use the email client on the phone if you want to add it that way.
But first, you MUST confirm in a browser you can log in with your email and password ***** you make
changes in case it turns into a password ***** We dont want to do that yet if it is related to password.
