You can't they are pushed from your carrier, you can delete the service books but they will just come back.

Thanks, How do you delete the service books though? Cause I can't delete the trial apps now can I change the browser that downloads them.

You are not being downloaded apps as such.  The are simply icons.  It is going to be an exercise in futility to remove them by going into Options>Advanced Options>Service Books and deleting the ones for these icons.

 

They will come back continually!  Nothing you do with the browser will have any bearing.   Your carrier pushes them to your device. 

 

There is a minuscule memory footprint for them.  Two options are easy enough:

 

Menu>Add Folder

 

Establish a folder for all the pushed icons named however you wish.  Mine is "Junk"

Move all the icons to the new folder.

 

Otherwise you can simply hide the icons.  You can combine both options:  Establish the folder move the icons to it and hide the folder.

 

Again deleting the icons via service book deletion will be an unending task.
