Easy. You can try pressing the home button and see if it gives you an overview. If it does, then press the - button located near the screen u wanna delete.

Or, you could press menu> edit. This will give you an overview.

Or, you could pinch inwards.

None of those work.

If you tap the icon with the house which is the home button it just takes me to middle of the 5 home screens I have. The 2 on the left and right are empty.

When I tap menu these are my options--> Add, Wallpaper, Theme and Settings

If you mean pinching 2 fingers together on the screen until both fingers touch then that does not work either.

I'm not sure if you can delete unwanted home screens with the stock launcher.

You could always replace it with an alternative launcher one like Nova or Apex which do give you this option.

Well that sucks. The launchers you listed below what do they actually do. What major/important/usefull changes do they do to the phone? I ask because this is my mothers phone and I do not want change to much since her english is not good and is not tech savvy.

The launchers that the dude has recommended are viable replacements for the stock launcher that comes with the phone - that is the best thing about android - you can customize it as you please - if you download and replace the stock launchers with either one of the ones mentioned here or some others, you will have the option of being able to edit the homescreens as you please and delete the homescreens that you do not want - there isnt much complication to it so i am sure your mom will have no trouble with it as long as you download the launchers etc - besides if you dont like the replacements, you can always uninstall them and you'll be back at the stock launcher -
Each launcher has its own advantages etc and you can read about what each launcher offers in the description for it when you go to download them from the google play store -

The ARC S only has one camera - on the back.

I just got my first android device (Galaxy Note tablet) and had the same question on getting rid of empty screens. The pinch gesture worked great. Thanks!

I couldn't figure this out on my Galaxy S3 using Google Experience Launcher. I added a large widget to the screen that was blank and then when I tried removing the widget, it also removed that pesky home screen finally. Hope this helps others.
