    before you finalize adding the widget, try closing the keyboard and making sure the layout is in the portrait view. THEN, do the final step of adding the widget. ive had the same problem a couple times and this helped me out

    Or make a couple of folder, put some apps in the folders and free up home screen space...

    I put all my media apps (camera/gallery/music/pandora/etc.) in one folder to make room on the home screen...made a HUGE difference!

    It just IS in portrait view. As in oriented so that it is vertical and not landscape as in when the keyboard is slid out.

    Try pulling the battery, and then putting it in. Which clock are you trying to use? You have NO icons on this screen? No phone, nothing?

    Wow, thanks for this tip! I didn't even think about this and I've got 3 full home screens now. It's my first Android device, and I'm still getting used to the customization possibilities. Good, good, good. :rockon:

    stdesign... you're SO welcome! I love the feature so I can still locate favorite apps easily, but I might not use them everyday, so I don't need them taking up a lot of space on my home screens. Best of both worlds!

    Portrait view, no keyboard. Can't add calendar widget. Same error message. Have plenty of open slots on home screen.

    Tried pulling the battery. Didn't help. I have a motorola droid and lots of available slots for widgets and shortcuts.

    I was going to suggest this, I have the free version, haven't tried to implement it yet because I really want the symmetry of the 4icons per space of the paid one, but going to wait for 2.1 to see if they roll out unlimited home screens.

    The free one(more icons widget) will let you put four icons per widget, you just replace the settings icon.

    Plenty of available slots does not mean anything. It physically has to be able to fit in that specified area. Some widgets can take up many more slots than people realize. Many also come in different sizes for this reason. Try adding this same widget to another page with more area.

    Sorry...but the only time it will say this is if there is just not enough room.

    It's just the calendar widget that came with the phone. It has fit there before without problems. I simply wanted to move it from one screen to another, and now it won't fit anywhere. I have 3/4 of one page totally empty. Shouldn't it fit there? Some widgets take up 2 slots without a problem but the calendar widget will not. (It only took up one slot when it fit there before.)

    "no more room ...." beautiful widgets

    I purchased beautiful widgets, but can't download them because my droid says "no more room on the homepage." I only have 4 icons on the home page. What should I do? Should I remove the wallpaper? How can I remove the wallpaper without deleting the photo from the gallery? Help !!!!
