Default Change Main Screen Icons/Shortcuts?

Please Login to Remove!

Hey guys.

Ok I searched on here, didn't find anything conclusive. I looked through the instructions and didn't see anything so I'm hoping you all can help me out.

Currently on the main screen of my Pearl (with Rogers) are the following icons/shortcuts;

Do More
Setup Wizard
Messages
My Blackberry email
Call Log
Applications

I was wondering if it's possible to delete some of those and put different ones in there place. I would like my main screen to have,

Address Book
Bluetooth
Messages (already there)
Blackberry Email (already there)
Blackberry Messenger
Camera

So is this possible and if so, how do I do it? I'm still new to the Blackberry so if you could be a bit descriptive on how this can be I'd REALLY appreciate it. Hopefully it's an easy process and big "how to" isn't needed .

Thanks in advance.

Cheers

You can either hide icons or move them!

Highlight icon then press berry button should give option to move or hide icon! Arrange accordingly

Ok that works on the screen that displays all of icons when I push either the Applications icon or the berry button. I'm talking about on the screen that has my clock, date, service provider, signal strength and what not. Maybe it's called the Home Screen, I want to change the icons on that screen. Does that make more sense?

You should be able to press the blackberry button to get to the second main screen (the one the shows more than just the few icons on the left of the screen) and then find the icon you want to have listed on the first screen and once you scroll to highlight it, click the blackbert button again and you'll have a few options there, one should be 'move'. Just select that one and drag the icon to the top line of icons and it should show up on your main screen.

Tried that with the 8130 and didn't work...next

Also, when I miss a call it shows up in "Messages" and "Call Log" why?

To change calls showing in your message list, go to your call screen > Options > Call Logging, and change to "none" (or "all calls" if you prefer).
