Re: changing a folder name means you lose the icon?!

Hi and welcome to the forums!


Was this folder provided by the carrier or a folder you created?

If it's carrier specific changes are it will be recreated when you reregister the phone and resend service books.


Try this:

Go to options advanced options, Host Routing Tables, click to enter. DO NOT click on any listing.
Press menu key, and select register now.
You will get a verification message. Then go to email settings and send service books.
You will get an email per account. Once complete, check all folders to see if it has returned.


Personally I do not use the majority or the vendor apps. I create a folder for all the applications I do not use.

I place all the icon in it, hide the icons, and then hide the folder. This was I get a clean desktop and I don't

accidentally starts an unwanted app. I do the same with all the email icons for accounts. I just use the main message queue.

Let me know if this is what you were asking.
