how to move the apps on iphone screen to different location

I have tried to search for this but to no avail.

I used to be able to move the apps around on MY PHONE under applications to different locations on the given screen or one of the other screens showing applications. Now all of a sudden I see the applications and the 4 screens but they are not "active" and I can no longer put apps in the order i'd like on the iphone.

I am hoping it's a simple explanation. I did a reboot but it didn't help.

thanks all.

just press on the screen on one of the apps until they all start shaking. the preinstalled apps will not have an X but the ones you installed from the Apple Store will have an X so you can delete them if you want. while they are shaking just hold one and move it wherever you want.

If you read his post carefully, you'll notice he is talking about in iTunes. It's inferred, I know, but I don't believe he's talking about such a simple fix. He seems to know what he's doing, and is saying that he can't move any icons in in the iTunes screen for apps. I'd answer him, but I've never run across the problem.

Perhaps reinstall iTunes?

I see and I believe you are correct!! but now that you mention it at one time I could move them as well but I tried a couple of weeks ago when I got my new phone and it would not work!

Do you have more than 1 iTunes account? When I'm logged in under the iTunes account my iPhone is under I can move the apps in iTunes, when logged in under my other iTunes account this is grayed out.
