    Welcome to the forums!!

    Not really - you have 8 gb of internal memory and I think you would have to have more than 96 to fill that up...however, not all apps play well together so that would be where an issue could arise...it is few and far between but it can happen...

    It will become an issue when you go to scroll through your apps in certain programs. I have around 150 apps and it can take a full 20secs for me to pull up a list of all my apps, depending what program I'm in. It's usually much shorter than that but it's definitely not as quick as when I has only a couple dozen apps.

    I have about 402+ apps and growing and I have no problems uses about 402MB for all. As bowie was saying it takes a while to scroll, however, I have my apps in categories in the app drawer using the DXTop home replacement app, so it takes about 10 second, if that, to load all of mine lol, and with them in categories it's easier to find, just a suggestion from an Appoholic lol, for when you get your phone.

    LOL wow 400+!! I thought I had a lot at ~75 but that takes the cake! How's the phone running other than slow to load all the apps in the drawer?

    AppOrganizer is another alternative to a home replacement. It does the same thing...organize apps into categories, change the icons and put shortcuts on your desktop if you wish.

    Is there an app that can allow me to have folders, and move my app buttons in those folders?

    mmmm.... I thought folders were default but it maybe a feature of Launcher Pro.

    I know I can make them.

    Did they update the folder feature? When I first did that, I could re-order the icons within the folder.
