Can't change bottom dock icons
I have had an S4 since launch and never had any problems with it...until I dropped it in water and managed to kill it of course.
So I've bought a new one from Amazon UK, SIM free and whilst setting it up I realised I can't change the 5 default dock apps at the bottom of the screen (or 4 as I guess you can't change the 'Apps' icon anyway.
On my old S4 this was a simple case of dragging another app down into the dock and replacing one that was already there. However when I try that on this S4 I immediately get the message "You can resize widget sand reposition widgets, shortcuts and folders by pressing the menu key and and tapping Edit" as soon as I longpress on any icon.
However when i do that, it still doesn't allow me to change the dock icons.
After googling, I've also tried going into the App drawer, changing Viewtype to customisable grid and then editing from there - but the bottom docks are missing meaning that won't work either.
Does anyone have any ideas on how to chang the dock icons? This is driving me crazy.
I know I can use another launcher, but surely this should work since it worked ok on another S4, and by all accounts almost everyone else's S4?
