    Here's a follow-up for what I've found that triggers the ICON problem. (iPhone 3GS and/or 3.0)

    Hard-Resets (Power button and home button together)
    More than 4 total pages of apps (including the default iPhone apps).
    Installing a single app that went on the 5th page and then reducing it to 4 pages again caused a problem upon reboot.

    This is alleviated in the short term by keeping only 4 pages of apps, and not doing a hard-reset.

    If you need to free-up memory, turn off the phone and turn it back on again. (I have found apps that show memory usage is freed up this way, thusly NOT requiring a hard-reset which may cause icon's to be screwed up.)

    Powering down and up several times has not caused an ICON problem - just keep it to 4 pages of apps or less and no hard-resets.

    I am having the same issue; Many of my application icons are either the wrong icon, or a combination of tho incorrect icon.

    Same problem here too. Happened to me once on Beta 4 with Bed Bugs, and now again with Rolando 2. All I had to do was a reboot and it fixed the Bed Bugs icon, but Rolando 2 is giving me a lot of trouble.

    I did that procedure to restore my icons and last night and it worked. Then I did a hard reset today and my icons were messed up again. I too am hoping that the 3.1 update addresses this.

    I'm experiencing same problem. Mine started when using the reQall app and I accidentally pressed the home button as the app was saying it was syncing. After that the screen scrambled, and the iPhone reboot itself. When it recovered, my Newsstand app (first page, second row, right column) was showing a darkened Tap Tap Revenge app icon instead (though Newsstand icon name was fine). Incidentally, the Tap Tap app is on the fifth page, first row, right column.

    Marksf is a genius

    This solution worked for me.

    Choose an app with an incorrect icon, ideally a free one, and delete it with the x in the corner. Then download the app again from the app store, but before it finishes downloading, turn the iphone off using the top button (not hard reset). Turn your iphone on as usual, and you should have all your icons back to normal, and your deleted app re-installed, again with the correct icon. Only takes two minutes so its worth a try, worked fine for a few hours now.

    I can confirm this works as well. Did this on one app and it "fixed" all that were messed up. Still waiting to see for how long . . . .

    To fix the icons, I just sync with iTunes, then remove the impacted apps by unchecking them in iTunes and resynching. Finally, rechecked them and resynced again to put them back. When I put them back, I grouped them in 1 or 2 at a time (there were about 7 total), but I don't know if that made any difference.

    Otherwise, I did the tips above. I only have 3 screens of apps. The thing that was catching me until I read this thread is the hard resets. I do leave my phone on 24 hrs and it charges in an iPhone alarm clock at night. So, I do a hard reset each morning when I first pick it up. I just tried a normal off/on and the icons stayed. for now. I'll report back if they go bad during the day.

    Thanks everyone for the great tips. This is really annoying and I hope it gets fixed with the next update ..... and soon.

    I followed your suggestions after experiencing the same issues with my iPhone 3gs and it corrected the icons perfectly back to their original program. Thanks for the resolution.
  • Steven Cyrway Level 1 Level 1
    What fixed it for me was going into resetunder settings and erasing all settings, but careful do not erase all content and settings only settings, the phone rebooted and bam! Fixed icons, This was done on an iPhone 3Gs

    I'm writing a new app called iCryingTowel. Perhaps that will help until Apple releases the 3.1 OS?
  • ARobbins Level 1 Level 1
    Some sounds (incoming call, email, text, video record and playback, key clicks) stopped working. Testing ring tones worked fine, so I did a hard reset. Now sounds work fine but the last two added apps have lost their icons. The apps work fine. I have 2 1/2 pages of apps. 10 have been downloaded from the app store, but only the 2 most recent adds have this problem. One of these has data stored. If I delete it and redownload, I'll lose that data. Is there any other way?
