    You can not delete them.

    I wish I could delete some of them.

    I recall reading that a jb'd device can hide icons of builtin apps, but I don't think I read anything about removing them.

    I dont think its possible to remove them. Although you can move the to a page you dont use. If your phone is jailbroken you can use categories to create a folder and put all the unused icons into one folder. This way all my unused icons only take up a total of 1 space on my springboard.

    You cannot remove them, but you can hide their icons:

    1. Jailbreak
    2. Install SBSettings
    3. Via SBSettings > More > Hide Icons, choose which ones you would like to hide

    first you might need a jailbroken ipod download a file manager i prefer ifile from cydia
    open ifile carefully delete the apps you dont want from applications and trash.
    you may also delete temp files to reduce memory usage.

    The built in apps don't take much space. On my iPhone, iBooks is the largest at 23 mb. Next is the Health app at only 2 mb. We're not talking about a lot of space here. There's other things you can do to manage storage.
    Delete messages
    Delete emails with photos
    Delete any 3rd party apps you don't need. Especially large ones.
    Upload photos to Box or Dropbox

    I put all of the standard apps into a folder and keep it on the last desktop screen.
    Not pretty but they dont bother me directly anymore
