    My 22 month old likes to move my icons or delete them while using my phone. Does anyone know of a way to not allow this on iPhone 4 - do not want to jailbreak phone

    I could have sworn there was a way to lock your apps so you could t delete them but I can't find it. Will look again.

    Settings>general>restrictions turn deleting apps off. Of course restrictions itself will be on. The apps can still be moved but not deleted.

    Wow I never knew you could do that. I have a daughter who loves iPhones too. This forum's just great!

    That's great. Didn't know that and our two year old does the same thing.

    I wonder if that would prevent my apps from returning back to page one, (which I'd prefer to keep blank except for the dock), after turning off my iPhone ?
