    Locking down applications

    So my 3 year old LOVES playing mommy's iPad, but I am having a horrible time with the fact that she can delete (or move) the icons for the apps...
    Is there any way to lock these down so they can't be manipulated???
    HELP!

    I think I saw that function in another program, and I can't remember where I saw it. Still looking!

    So much to read, so little memory left.

    Here's where you can download the iPad manual.

    Have a two yearold and those wiggly icons are a finger magnet. Preventing deletions and in app purchases is a must.

    The good thing is that those settings can be password protected

    Am I missing something, on my iPad and iPhone4 in "Restrictions", I don't see anything that would prevent a child from deleting apps. You can keep him from installing apps, or from using certain apps, but I don't see anything that would lock the delete function. What am I missing here?

    You do not have a option right below - installing apps that says deleting apps off/on ?

    "Cameras" is below "Installing" Apps in "Restrictions" on my iOS 4.1.x on iPhone4, and iPad iOS 3.2.x has "Location" below "Installing Apps". Maybe iOS 4.2.1 has that feature. Whatever, it is a very good idea, especially with kids, even big kids.
