Welcome to BB Forums.

A very popular question; probably only answered 100 times already (hint: search is your friend).

Anyhow... scroll to the icon you want to hide.

Press the <ALT> key and click the trackwheel. A menu with a move icon and hide icon will appear.

Good luck.

OR, you can use Plazmic's theme builder and remove all the icons and only show when you move the trackwheel around.

And then when you pick the blackberry icon on the home screen you get a nice list over everthing eles. Which is easly moveable & hideable.

Zen isn't the best theme, I know some here disagree, but your best bet is to simply hide the Icons you don't want to see.

...sorry Zen lovers.

I am a fan of BB Insight-Icon. At 293944 bytes, net_rim_theme_blackberry_icon_240x260 (4.1.0.327) is the smallest available default theme module for our devices.

No need to apologize. It's completely subjective (you know, the whole "fact" versus "opinion" thing). And I disagree. Zen is totally the way to go -- particularly if you're going to go through the hassle of adding a wallpaper and you primarily only use a few number of apps on your BB.

LOL, true, fact is Zen doesn't work for me and opinion says you like it.

It's all good: one man's trash is another man's Zen.
