    Hi Guys,

    Just bought my Iphone 3 GS, now i am trying to delete some apps but there is no way to proceed with it.

    The 'x' isn't red, its black, and only appears on user installed apps, not Apple apps.

    What exactly are you trying to delete?

    There is actually a way to hide the itunes store. If you turn restrictions on (Settings -> General -> Restrictions) and turn iTunes off it will hide the app icon altogether.

    Or you can dump it past the last screen.

    Do you know if there is a way to do this if you don't have 11 pages of apps?

    Well, you don't need to have 11 pages FULL of apps, just a single app for each page. Then you can dump it to the 12th page. I don't know what will happen if you then move apps from the 11th to the 10th, 10th to the 9th, etc. (hope that makes sense), since I never tried it.

    That to, but it would be a major PITA.

    I think jailbreaking would be a major PITA! :D

    I just un-jailbroke today. It was a PITA. Not jailbreaking itself, but that fact that my phone died every five minutes was.

    EDIT:
    Apparently you do need full pages. I can't move the icon to the "12th page," or out of sight. Hm, that sucks...

    I'll jailbreak my 3G when I get a new model, but not before. I've just seen too many people have problems to want to go experimenting. Once I have two iPhones, then no problem.
