This is my first post over here - I've only had my iPhone since Christmas and for the second time, I went to get it this morning and noticed that all of the icons were "jiggling" or "dancing" (I swear the only thing I've had is coffee this morning) Both times I have shut the phone off and turned it back on, and it stopped it, but does anyone know what this is? Do I need to have it looked at? Thanks in advance for any help.

    Hi, don't worry it's normal. If you press any icon for more than one second, they will jiggle to let you know that you can move them around if you want. Press the home button to stop them jiggling. Just tapping an icon will not make them jiggle, unless your touchscreen is faulty, or if you have sticky fingers.

    If you want to move any unused icons from the home screen to another screen, then drag the icon to the far right hand side of the screen.

    Hey, i just wanted you to know first that i dont own an iPhone, yet..

    Anyway, the jiggling is a new feature added to the iPhone softaware. When you keep holding your finger for more than 5 seconds, the icons jiggle, so that you can move the icon around and place them anywhere you like...

    Dont worry, the coffee's just fine
