Re: Number of Icons in Home Screen.

[ Edited ]

Here's how to do it:

 

  1. Select any icon on the home screen.
  2. single click (or a very quick double click) the BB button (one next to the green phone button)
  3. select Options from the pop-up menu
  4. Set Homescreen layout as you like (1, 2 or 3 rows)
  5. can also select wallpaper and set the download folder if you like
  6. click the BB button again and select Save.

But yes, it only worked once. I had to reboot via battery-pull to get the "Options" option to work again.

Re: Number of Icons in Home Screen.

I'm not sure how to report the problem to the Blackberry Guru's. I will have to search around and get back to this post.

Re: Number of Icons in Home Screen.

This must've cropped up after the update to .75, when I was on .65 I was able to change my layout from 3 rows to 1 and to 2 and back to 3.  I ended up keeping it at 1 row, but in the meantime I updated to .75 and hadn't messed with it until I read this thread. 

 

I switched from 1 row to 3 to test it and and now I can't get the "Options" menu to come back.  (I click it and nothing happens)

 

A batt pull seems to fix it (of course)

Re: Number of Icons in Home Screen.

I'm sure it was in the update. I was able to change the rows as well with the earlier version. I just wonder if the update to .75 effected everyone?

Re: Number of Icons in Home Screen.

That was a great thread and tip.  I like the 1 row!  Thanks guys.

 

Now for a follow up.  Advertised is the lightning pic in the background for the wallpaper of the Storm.  I have VZW, so of course the put their logo on the screen.  I thought I caught a glimpse of the lightning pic pop up one day, but was never able to find it in the stock photos.  Is there an internal path to that pic?

Re: Number of Icons in Home Screen.

I have a torch and had this problem as well. I was told to go to home screen preferences and choose how many rows to show. I didn't have that option. Just by fluke I found that if you hold the part where it says "All" or "favorites" and move it up or down slowly (as if you were opening the tray but slower) it changes the number of rows that show on your homescreen!
