    I use to have an x in the upper right corner on my icon when it was wiggling and then I could remove it. I no longer have the x present when it wiggles. What is wrong and how can I fix this problem? I currently can not remove any apps from my phone.:confused:

    Dear Blue room

    Thanks for your reply. I not very knowledgable when it comes to the world of technology. I powered off my iphone4 and waited about a minute. When it came back on I tried holding my finger down on the icon again .It wiggled but no sign of any red x. I use to see the red x in the past but lately when I have tried to delete unwanted icons the x doesn't appear. Any other suggestions? thanks ml

    It is not jailbroken and I'm not sure what iOS is but that last update I got was 4.3 ? I think. It took several attempts before it would download.

    ----------

    I just reset my phone and nowI can delete apps but the x is now in the upper left and it is black. Just wondering why the change from uper right to upper left corner and from red to black..is this just the new version?
    thanks agaoin for any help, ml
