    I was just realigning my apps and wanted to move some from the 2nd page to the 6th. while doing so, i had to drag and drop the app on every page from 2nd to 8th before i could drop the icon on the 8th. is this a limitation on the iphone? or is there something i dont about moving an app mutiple pages further down?

    You know how you get the page to scroll by moving ot the end and holding.

    If you keep holding on the application and pull away from the edge a tiny bit and the move back and hold the page will scroll again.

    Remember, you ONLY have 9 pages for apps....unless its increased in the
    upcoming 2.2

    You can always drag it into the dock and then flip to page eight and pull it out of the dock onto the page.

    If you are jailbroken, download the 5-icon-dock (don't use it), but when you want to move an app just pop it in the dock then flick to the page you want and drag it off.

    If you are not jailbroken, you acn achieve the same effect by just replacing one of your dock icons temporarily.
