    Press and hold them. Then move your finger over to the edge of the screen. assuming there is space on the other screen it will roll over to show it.

    Yes.

    I'm not quite sure exactly what the trick is, but if you keep playing around with it, you can get the screen to flip.

    Maybe someone else can post exactly what the correct process is.

    I got it.

    Press and hold until it vibrates.

    Then slide the icon over to the edge of the screen and hold for a second.

    After a second it will flip the screen and move the icon.

    Thanks for the help

    If your phone has a trackball or other scrolling device, you can also hold the icon down with one finger and use another finger on the trackball, etc. to scroll to adjacent screens.

    I'll try those. I never exactly figured out how I got it to move, I just played with it until it did.

    You can also "park" the icon if you need to move it several screens at once. To do so, longpress the icon you want to move, then move it over another icon on the current screen and stop pressing on the icon. Now you can flick-scroll pages until you get to the page you want, then grab the icon and drop it in an open slot.

    This is for SenseUI phones, not sure if this works on straight Android UIs.

    Is there an easy way to move multiple icons or shortcuts at once.
