    I have a couple of questions about layout.

    First, is moving things I don't use from where they are. It is possible to move the Browser icon off the home page?

    On the first tap to the right I have the music application, and I never use that. I would like to use that space for App icons. Can I move that?

    Finally, two taps to the left is the calender. Can I move that?

    Thanks

    Long press on the icon and move it to another screen or delete it all together. You can then long press on the blank space and add whatever you want.

    Anything on the home screens can be moved and or removed from the home screen with just a long press, then drag it down below to the big remove icon!
    If you want to just move something just do a long press and drag it where you want it to go!

    Hope that helps ya!

    Press and hold the icon that you want to move. It'll "lift" from the current screen and allow you to drag it somewhere else. I prefer to use the trackball to change screens.

    You can also drag the icon down to the bottom of the screen to remove it.

    Long press the icon (hold) and drag it where you want or to the bottom of screen for delete. To add an icon or widget press the (+) plus symbol. Check out the premade scene's. Have fun!

    :cool:

    hahaha, Kel, beat me to it. ;)

    I never thought about doing that until about four days ago and it's such an awesome idea...can't believe I've never thought about it before.

    There are multiple ways to do just about everything on the phone, just a matter of finding the one that works easiest/best for you!

    Thanks for the help. I've only had the phone 2 days but it's frustrating when I hadn't even learned enough to be dangerous on my Blackberry when the white screen of death appeared. I'm so glad my boyfriend made me aware of these types of forums. Thanks everyone!

    The track ball thing works great. After five months I'm still learning every day. I was always pressing and dragging. TC

    Found a new way to do this as well!

    Press and hold app so that it "floats" above the window and drag it to the very TOP of the screen and let go. It should stay at the top of the window.

    Swipe screen left/right to the desired page.

    Press app and drag it to the desired location on the page.
