    So here's something odd - when holding my phone vertically - the home button, and all widgets that reside in what I suppose a person would call row 3 - just above the home button - are disabled. Can't open them. Can't move them or delete them. If I DO try to click on one of them - it opens the widget to the right or the left, but does not recognize the row 3 widget.

    If I turn the phone horizontal - I can use the row 3 widgets - but if anything winds up residing in that vertical set row 3 - it will not work. If I try to update my status on facebook with the phone horizontal - it will not work, as the share button is right next to the home button - in row 3.

    I have shut down, restarted, popped the battery loose and restarted - all of that. Anyone have any ideas on what I should be doing?

    Thanks! Starla

    Hi, StarlaE, and welcome to the forums.

    Have you tried removing those widgets and then adding them back to your screen, or is this regardless of which widget you put in that particular spot?

    If it is regardless, are you on 2.2?
