    I've just searched around here but can't find an answer. I know how to move icons around on a page although I'm still not sure exactly how it works. It's almost like playing Puzzle 15!

    For example how do I move an icon from the first page to the third page? And if the third page is full which icon does it displace? I can sometimes get it to move from page 1 to page 2 by moving it close but it's hit and miss.

    Very frustrating.

    Is there a manual authorized or not for 2.0?

    Thanks

    ummm... hold your finger down on one of the icons, then it will start to "wiggle" and then drag the icon you want to move to the page you want to go to.

    Hold your finger on the icon you want to move until they start to wiggle and drag the icon to the left or right side of the screen and it will go on to the next page and simply let go of the icon when you find the place you want to put it, after you're all done, just click the home button to stop the wiggling.

    Thanks. I sort of knew that but I was hoping that there was an easier way to change pages.

    Here's another two questions along the same topic:

    1. What do the X's mean on only some of the icons?

    2. When an application is updated it seems to be moved to the very last page. Is there a way to lock an icon into a specific position?

    Thanks again for all your support.

    1) the x button means the delete button, but dont worry, if u press it by accident it askes u are you sure you want to delete it
    2) no, it will go to the first available blank space that is not covered by an app

    1 - X's mean you can delete those apps. There will be no X for example on the Music, Video, Itunes, icons etc, that are part of the software.
    You can also delete web pages you've saved on your pages...

    2 - I'm not sure if 2.0.1 updated that very issue, but that's a common complaint that when updating, it moves it to the very last page, and nothing can be done about it (unless 2.0.1 fixed that)
