    Re: Gmail app is unable to get delete on Samsung Captivate

    Hello Friend,
    The gmail application in an android is a preinstalled application, all the preinstalled applications can not be uninstalled or deleted from the phone , that is why you are facing problem when trying to delete the gmail application.

    Hope this helped.

    Thank You

    If that Gmail app is pre-installed then you can not delete that from your device.If you have installed from play store & or from any other source then you can un-install the app.To uninstall MENU-SETTINGS-APPLICATIONS-MANAGE APPLICATIONS-GMAIL APP-UNINSTALL-OK.Once done app will be un-installed if installed from play store or other source.All the inbuilt apps can not be uninstalled,you can also delete Gmail account from your device if you have added.For that MENU-SETTINGS-ACCOUNTS & SYNC-GAMIL ACCOUNT-REMOVE ACCOUNT.

    My dear friend.

    As you have said that the Gmail app is pre installed there is no way you can delete it.

    It is a system app my friend.

    If it would have been a downloaded app then it could be deleted.

    But now as it is preinstalled app i am sorry to stay it will remain there forever.

    Regards

    Dear friend

    you cannot delete the inbuilt apps from the device
    so you can only clear the data from the app
    follow some steps to clear the data and cache
    1 tap on settings
    2 then application
    3 now select manage app
    4 then select the gmail app
    5 tap on clear data option
    6 or reset the device to solve the problem

    hope this will help you
