I just purchased a 7130e and have been messing around with it. Downloaded a few things and found that setting a profile was needed right away since I had no "ring" for incoming calls and spent 1/2 hour looking in the tools section were most mobile phones keep those settings. Anyway...

Is there a tool or program available to control the main screen? I have about 3 games on there now and it would be nice to place them into one folder. Is this possible? What about deleting icons which I will never use?

Thanks in advance.

There's no way to create a folder in the home screen. You can delete icons on your home screen by going to options -> advanced options -> applications and then select the program you want to delete. Hope this helps.

That will delete the programs, not just the icons. To hide the icons (in case you need the program later) press the ALT key then press the trackwheel button. An option to hide or move the application will appear. Scroll to the choice you desire and click the wheel again.

It would be nice if you could actually put things in the application folder.

So no matter how many applications you have they are all going to be on the main screen? Boy it would be nice to slide similar applications into one folder to limit the scrolling.

Thanks.

Different themes handle games/apps differently. Some themes put apps in an Applications folder. Others don't.

However, today it is not possible for you to move applications from one folder to another.

Yes, all icons will appear on one screen. And you can hide those you don't use and move the others around.

You can switch to a list-based theme...this usually places most items into the Applications folder. Otherwise, you will need to hide/move icons around to suit your liking.

as was posted a post or two above this...you can hide the applications on the homescreen that you want. just press ALT + click the trackwheel, and then "Hide" the application. if, you decide later on that you actually want to see those icons again, then just click ALT + trackwheel and then "show all" i found this to be really useful, and now i don't have that much "clutter" on my screen

hope this helps
