What do you mean by glitch ? and why would they not just give unlimited pages ? Would it slow things down having too may apps installed ?

I currently have about 21 pages of apps taking up a little over 5gb on my phone with about 4gb free...i don't understand why we are limited in pages either. I can see a limit to keep a certain amount of memory free but that should just be based on memory occupied versus number installed.

Anyway to glitch pages, you need to move your voice recorder icon to your last page and it should be the last icon to go there. You need to have your first page of icons filled so put something there to make it full. It doesn't matter how empty the other pages are as long as they are occupied with something.

Now move your ipod icon from the bottom bar up to the left of the voice recorder icon so it is pushed to the right into the next page and you can't see it anymore. Now reboot your phone and you should have a nice new page empty of icons except for 1.

Yeah this trick is fine. I have 14 pages, it sucks though I can't use the itunes organizer or the applications page to add and remove games or it message up your pages.

Or you could just jailbreak and install categories - it makes the springboard look much nicer imho
