    I've had the same problem! I cannot describe how unbelievably frustrating it is! this is an extremely simple function, and an absolute necessity, its not like some luxury feature isn't working. This is mandatory!

    ****ers need to fix this!

    Switch to GO Launcher. Easily move apps from screen to screen, or to dock (if a blank space is open).

    This is a bug with the optimus v, but it's easily fixed. Go to Settings > Applications > Manage Apps > All, and then force close the launcher. Press home, and then everything should work again.

    I don't have this issue on mine. I just longpress the app on the desktop shortcut till I feel it vibrate, then I slowly drag it to where i want it on the screen. Works perfectly.

    If you are going to uninstall an app that currently has a shortcut/widget on the screen, you need to remove it from the screen first. Then uninstall it.
