Not sure how to hide them all at once but ALT-TrackWheel brings up the Hide Application menu.

IIRC you can't hide all icons without a modifed theme.

Could it be a older os/theme version that allows it cause he didnt modify anything.

This is possible only in overlord. If anything it's probably a bug.

Which icons are *hideable* strictly depends on the theme. If you alt+click on an icon and the "hide application" menu item doesn't come up then you can't hide that icon. I've seen the same icon hideable in one theme but not in another.

Overlord theme is available from BlackBerry HELP!. It's not available there if you're running 4.2.

It shouldn't make a difference. The functionality is dependant on the theme not the OS
