Please note: In order to delete a stock app from your phone, you will need to have two things:
1.Root Permissions (your phone must be rooted).
2.Root Explorer (or another file manager that gives you access to the root menu of your phone).

* Open Root Explorer (you can get a free version at phoneky.com)
* Find the “System” folder and open it
* mount as R/O instead of R/W
* Find the app you want to delete: I strongly recommend you don’t actually DELETE the app. Instead, MOVE it to another folder (like on your SD card) so you can move it back later if something goes wrong. If you delete it, and later find out that you needed it, you will have to do a factory reset
* restart phone

@op why didn't u warn on the damages of a careless removal. moreover this is a hardcore way of removing apps that was meant for geeks not novice.
to remove unwanted system apps with safety, download titanium backup. uninstall any system apps u don't use. note the apps on white texts are user apps, the apps on green and red are system apps. now green is safer to remove. never u in any case, remove an app in red text.
Note: backup the system apps u want to remove before u uninstall it.

ti e ti ba e.

warning to all, factory reset does not return system deleted apps by root users. onless u do a system restore.

to boot into recovery
1. calm down
2. PRESS and HOLD the volume up button only
3. While still holding the volume up, power on the phone.
4. keep ur hold on the volume up and power buttons only till u boot to recovery
