    I AM A NEWBIE TO THE DROID. LOVE IT! But i can not move any of my widgets around on a screen or from screen to screen. Probably a user error but I can not figure it out. Longpress turns widgit blue but can not move it. Please help.

    Welcome to the site!

    Typically on any Android device as long as you keep your finger on the widget after the long press you are able to move it around the scree freely. It also depends on the size. If the widget will not fit where you are trying to place it it will snap back in place.

    I have this issue too. The picture widget on the second screen to the right was mistakenly moved to the third screen and now it refuses to let me put it back. I have not resized it and i even tried moving it all the way to the furthest left screen and when i let go it jumps back to the far right. ????

    Thanks for the quick response. The long press will not allow me to move any of my widgets. It will highlight the widget but i can not move it.

    This might be dumb but did you try removing it and readding it to the screen you want?

    Thats a good thing. And sometimes weird stuff happens and its just better not to ask why :)

    If its a big issue well that could be a different story.

    I have not tried deleting it and readding it. After reading the above post I tried again to move it and it worked fine.
