Default Hide all icons?

Please Login to Remove!

I want to hide all (or most all icons) and then use shortcuts to call up email, calendar, tasks, search etc....

The closest thing I can find is to Alt-esc to get the last used apps, but it only shows the last couple...

any ideas?

Zen and Today themes are good for that. Your given a list of icons/apps that can be pulled up when you need it and hidden otherwise.

Wirelessly posted (Cingular-Blue 7290: BlackBerry7290/4.1.0 Profile/MIDP-2.0 Configuration/CLDC-1.1 VendorID/101)

I do that! Go to your phone app, use the trackwheel menu (push it in), then select options, general options, Dial from home screen: NO.

Then remember all the short-cuts before hiding the icons from the home screen.
