    Hold one until they start jiggling. Hit the 'X'. Confirm.

    You obviously haven't searched everywhere since it's right in your manual on your iPhone. Just tap and hold an icon until they start shaking, then tap the x. Deleted. This is a late night freebie. :)

    If you want to mass delete apps from the phone, you can always uncheck the boxes in iTunes and then resync.

    Is there a way to move them around? On the 1st page I have an empty spot and on the 2nd page there is only 4 apps and then there are 2 more on the
    3rd page...

    Same as deleting them, just drag them around.

    Thanks again! I love this place! Seeing as I bought the phone and stuff in Japan, I can't read the little tutorial thing that came with it! LOL

    I always suggest one only put 3 apps in the dock. That way it is really easy to move apps (just move the app you want to move to the dock, swipe to the page you want, and then bring it out of the dock). Just my opinion.

    Good tip, I just did that. Thanks for all the help. I am sure i will have plenty more questions!

    I was told i could get my phone unlocked for pretty cheap, but what good would it do me? I still won't be able to Voip ove 3G. :mad: Are there any other tangible benefits of doing it?

    You can unlock your phone easily and for free by jailbreaking using redsn0w and then just download ultrasn0w, and you phone will be magically unlocked. And you can download "3G unrestrictor" from cydia and you can do VoIP on 3G or any "wifi only" app over 3G.

    I wish it was that easy jmann. I do not have a good internet connection for my laptop here and I would end up screwing something up bigtime! LOL I am going to print out what you said and see if the guy can make it happen for me. I just need to find out if it will work with SoftBank (if it even matters what carrier I use anyway).

    Once it is unlocked by ultrasn0w, it will accept any sim card regardless of carrier. Here is wonderful step-by-step guide.
