Default Changing displayed icons on main screen

Please Login to Remove!

Hi,

Just wondering if its possible to change the icons that are displayed in the main screen of my blackberry. Some things I will just never use. In fact the ideal thing would probably be if I could just change the order?

Cheers.

It is very easy to move or hide icons on a BlackBerry.

From the main screen, press the ALT key and click the Trackwheel. You will get a menu with the options to Move and Hide an icon. You can not Hide every icon (like the Messages icon) but you can move them.
