    so I just woke up and turned my iPhone on from standby, then all the icons started shaking and no buttons were working. And it was no apps because I only have the aim app right now.

    hit the home button and it should stop, if you tap and hold an icon they will all shake, this is how you rearrange your home screens

    Look at page 20 of the:

    iPhone User Guide pdf

    "Customizing the Home Screen"

    Not really. There must be thousands of users who wonder why their icons wiggle. It's just another example of the non-intuitiveness of some of the UI.

    Normal people, with real lives, who don't hang on forums, would usually not know about many features... especially new ones.

    I love it when people discover stuff we've known for so long.

    Does it make us elitist if we laugh?

    I guess what gets me is that people actually purchase a $200+ phone and agree to invest thousands of dollars in a contract and yet can't be bothered to crack open the quick tips guide that comes in the box, go read the user's manual, or even watch the guided tour.

    I mean, is it me, or isn't it a little odd that people take the time to sign up for a macrumors account and post a thread before it occurs to them to look at the published support material? :eek:

    doesnt the iphone have a pop up that says how to customize the home screen when you first sync it, or is that bypassed when the iphone is activated at the store?

    ^^ No, you're right. Everytime you restore and then sync up again. It pops up a Customize your Home Screen screen.

    One reason is because Apple pushes the phone as being super easy to use.

    But, especially as more and more options are added due to customer pressure, it will get less and less intuitive. So it goes.

    For that matter, I've seen smart people unable to use it at all, without being told that you must hit the Home button to get a menu again, since there's no visible way to back out of an app, like on any other OS.

    Few people take the time to do any research before posting. It's just easier to ask others with more experience. Once in a while that's understandable. For instance, if a friend asked me a question about a phone I didn't know, I'd probably suggest that they go ask on a forum.

    Actually, I would say, "have you punched it into Google?"

    Google has answered almost every question I have ever had about a device, or a problem I was having installing or using something. From the link above, the question would have been answered in 0.22 seconds. :)

    That might not happen with a brand new device, but with something a few months/years old, almost every question can be answered with a simple google search.

    A little bit harsh I think. It's like buying a Ferrari, and not reading the manual to work out how to alter the differential settings.

    You might want to save that little lecture for the features that AREN'T explained like this when the phone is first used:

    I know how to use my iphone I did the research, but you know I wouldn't have got a phone which would end up costing me as much as the iphone will if I didn't think that it was cool. I'm willing to bet a serious amount of money that I'm in the majority.
    Critise the guy for not doing his research, but not for buying because it is cool. If people didn't think the iphone was cool it wouldn't sell.

    Same thing happened to me this morning, right after I realised only one of my speakers worked :( I'm going to demand my iPhone be replaced.
