    Hey, people:

    I just wanted to share with you a very strange behavior I have noticed lately on my iPhone:

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_zK1koKcj4Y

    About two days ago, all my apps, wich I used to have perfectly organized in folders, appeared totally spread through 8 desktops. I was new to such cuantity of different screens, and started to play moving around them. This afternoon, I still don't know very well what I did, anyway I wouldn't be able to describe it with my poor english (maybe if I improve the technique I will record it), but I made the 'Messages' app dissappear. After freaking for a while, I tried to do it again, and 'Maps' walked away. I noticed that starting the apps was still possible trough spotlight. Did it again, and this time very strange things happened: Two 'Contacts' apps, transparent icons, phantom apps, things leaving screen when unlocking iPhone (or when they wanted to), and so on. The video only shows a very little portion of the insanity I saw before...
    I synchronized with iTunes, and nothing changed.
    Finally everything went back to normal when I deleted one of the 'phantom apps' trough iTunes.

    Maybe more people have commented here about this, Im sorry in that case, but I was so amazed and I had to tell everybody about this!

    Keep doing so well, guys!

    I have been having the same problem. It happened 3 times now over the last month. I think it has something to do with Infinifolders.

    EDIT: nevermind, I didn't really understand what you were talking about until I watched the video. I am having that problem.......NOT! (Borat voice)

    I could record how I did it:

    Sorry for the quality, it's recorded with an old Sony-Ericsson C905 and I couldn`t focus. Don't expect to see anything until 1:10...
    The solution to all the mess is very simple: settings->general->reset->reset home screen layout;

    I have tried with my girlfriend's iPhone 4, and happened exactly the same, but a friend with an iPod Touch 3rd gen has been all the afternoon trying without results xD.
