    Hi - is there a way to move the icons without having to remove them and then pick a new place? If not - why with the nice slide functionality, can you not just slide them around on the same screen or the the next?

    I am a newbee to this forum... :( I will make sure to post on the correct place! However - I can now move the icon on the same screen, and make it "slide off", but when I let go on the new screen, the icon just pops back to the original one :eek:

    This is what I found in the UG:
    A Widget cannot be dragged from a current screen to
    an adjacent screen. It must first be removed from its
    current location, then added back to a new current​
    screen.

    Each device seems to be different (or maybe it's the HTC sense UI) because you can move them around on the Eris.
