How can I uninstall applications that are locked by phone vendor?
I want to uninstall the facebook app, as I don't use facebook. The phone won't let me uninstall that app.
I have a Droid Eris and a Motorola Droid. I want to get rid of it from both these phones.

unfortunately you need root permission to uninstall system apps. If you are rooted you can use ADB and type
adb uinstall <package name>

Titanium Backup actually has a convenient interface for doing this. Requires root though. Be careful not to remove something important (I removed com.android.mms and was unable to receive sms messages).
