    I have a 64GB WiFi and I'm having trouble moving home screen icons to different pages. As soon as the icon would reach the edge of the screen it would just drop back into it's original place.

    I am successful 1/10 times or something and it's getting annoying, can anyone else confirm this?

    Happened to me yesterday. Hard reset fixed the issue.

    The video is still processing, but I had the same problem until I stopped dragging completely to the edge. I stopped slightly before (possibly where the touchscreen ends). I assume by dragging it off the touchscreen it thought I removed my finger and snapped back into place.

    I've noticed if you slow down while approaching the edge it works just fine. But going to the edge fast will drop the App back.

    This problem DOES NOT occur on the iPhone 3GS.

    That's a bummer. It was really annoying. At first I thought the home screen was protected or something.

    I had this problem yesterday, and it seemed like when I approached the edge, I needed to be sure my finger was IN BETWEEN the rows of icons. If I was ON the row, it wouldn't flip.

    Seems to be fine now though, so maybe there is an intermittent problem...

    Moving slowly is the key. Haven't had a problem since I figured this out. Try it.

    Same problem here. Seems like a bug they need to fix. Moving slowly helps, but it still doesn't work every time for me. Also wish there was an easier way to move many items between screens (on the device, you can multi-select and move in the iTunes interface).

    THIS


    Just like the iphones, you have to slowly approach the screen edge and give it time to interpret the action as an intention to advance screens.
