    That's one best left to the other LG phone owners as changing shortcuts in the dock bar is handled by the default launcher. I don't know what LG uses or if they permit changing those shortcuts.

    If they don't you could always use an alternate launcher like ADW, Go or LauncherPro.

    Nope, every launcher has that option in a different location. I have an HTC Phone running ADW and a Samsung with TouchWiz and LauncherPro so I can't tell you what LG's options are. Hopefully someone will chime in and give you directions.

    I figured this out by mistake. Go to applications and menu > manage. The dock follows you there, but becomes manageable -- just drag apps into the dock. You only get three, though.
