    I received this phone yesterday. Upon activation, I immediately was upgraded to 4.04. I notice that I am unable to drag and drop the app icons to create a folder specific to the apps as I was on my last phone that had ICS which was the HTC EVO Design. Is it the Samsung phones that don't give you this ability with ICS? If so, then how do you all create folders to clean up your desktop? I like to have all of my news apps, productivity apps, etc. in one folder.

    Right now you are using the touchwiz version of ICS. If you want to have the stock version, you need to go menu>setting>applications>all>twlauncher>clear defaults. Then the next time you press the home button, check the box that says set as default and choose Launcher, not TWLauncher. Some folks will tell you to use Sprint Id, but I find this way better if you don't plan on switching back to touchwiz.

    Thanks for the info. I have one question though. With touchwiz when you long press on the home screen, you have the ability to add widgits. With the stock ICS launcher, all you get is wallpaper. I forget how to add a widget. Also, do you recommend the Boost ID's?

    I will assume that Boost Id is the same as Sprint Id, in which case, no, I do not recommend it. But it is kind of a personal preference thing. In the stock ICS, the widgets are in the app drawer, and you just select the widget you want, long press on it, and then drop it on the home screen you want it on.

    Thanks for all the great info. One more question...now that I switched to stock ICS, I can't get rid of the Google search widget at the top of my home screen. Any thoughts?

    It's part of the OS. You cannot get rid of it. I'm not a fan of it either, but it isn't going anywhere without using root and a ROM.
