    All of a sudden I can't delete apps!?

    I'm hoping that someone can help. All of a sudden I am unable to delete ANY apps through the "wiggle" method. When I hold an app down I get the wiggle but no X in the corner. What gives?

    Goto settings-General-restrictions and make sure the deleting of apps is enabled.
