Removing Some of the Choices from "Home" Screen - "All", "Favorites", "Media", "Downloads", and "Frequent"

I did a search but couldn't find an answer. Apparently I'm not the only one who would like to get rid of some of the options on the "Home" screen - the "All", "Favorites", Media", "Downloads" and "Frequent" selections located above various groups of icons. Is there a way to remove these choices so that you just have "All" ? or perhaps "All" and "Frequent" or "Favorites"? It is very irritating to have to keep scrolling through these options.

 

Thanks

No, not currently, those tabs are standard and can't be edited or removed. I, too, am hoping those become optional in the future.

Thanks, .....I guess. But it would be nice if someone from RIM could explain why they did this. Why do you need Favorites + Frequent + Downloads + Media? Really dumb!!! And set up so you can't even change it? Really irritating!!!!

I bet RIM never explained nor have they fixed it. Can it be any surprise that they are losing market share?

Yes, they did. Bet you don't ask before speaking, either?

 

The upgraded OSs allow removing or hiding of all but the ALL tab.

In that case, you lose the bet.  Of course I asked, but answer got I none.  Despite searching on the forums, all I found were requests that this be possible.

I am grateful for you for pointing out that "the upgraded OSs" allow this to be done.  However my BB tells me it is fully up to date.  What are these upgraded OSs and how do I get them?

You chose to post in a year old thread.

How about being nice around here?
