Do you mean the 3 "hidden" pages or is there another way to get more pages (without Jailbreak ;D ?) ?

Probably isn't the right place to continue this, but non jailbroken (currently there is no reason for me to jailbreak, I have to much stuff I can't get to now) method to add pages, which I didn't come up with.

I currently have 18 pages on my iphone, which can be seen on the bottom. Ive heard of people doing more, you can still page them but there won't be a little circle on the bottom that you can view.

In a nutshell you need to make sure that the first page and the last page (starting with page 11, then when you add a page, page 12) are full of apps. The voice memo default installed app is the key here. Move it off the first page and fill in the first page so it is still full. Now move the voice memo app to the last position of the last page, then bump it off that page with an app from the previous page. Then just press the home button once to get out of move mode and reboot your iphone. When you come back the second page will be new and contain the voice memo app only. Again add another app here so you can move the voice memo again. Repeat as many times as necessary.

A semi short cut is you can use the bottom 4 icon spots to move things easier, but leave at least one default installed app here, otherwise you can't move anything back to it unless you on the first page and its an original app . I leave it up to you how to figure it out efficiently.

Now how cool is that. I know it doesn't take much, but hey now not only can you install Car Mania, you'll be able to see its icon also without having to do a search for it.

I thought I better add the following to this post as an edit:

oh yeah one more thing...there is a gotcha with adding more pages. Nothing I can't live with, but when you sync with itunes, you can't go to the applications tab and move the icons around. It will revert back to 11 pages. I never read anything about not being able to select/deselect apps tho and I haven't actually tried this yet.
