    Hurrah! someone actually had some help dealing with the iPhone home screen. The Apple web site was less than helpful for a very new user.

    Your site is now permanently bookmarked on my notebook.

    Thank you.

    Yeah, thanks….I was about to smash this thing if it kicked it back over one more time. I didn’t realize you had to kinda hover at the screens edge for a bit for the next page to roll over.

    This should be a lot easier than is. I know HOW to do but still can’t do it. My fingers are too fat to type much less exercise this kind of fine motor control.
