To change the bottom 4 icons is easy

Just a slight addition to your review
To change the bottom 4 icons on the main screen

Go to the applications list menu, hit the menu/options button, then edit- then you can change them Smile
Its a bit difficult to get it to be as customized as you want, but it can be done- haha

Yes, changing the primary shortcuts is covered on page 29 of the user manual.

I wish the reviewer would have researched that a bit more before stating "These four icons can NOT be changed or altered..." I know there is a lot of stuff to cover with these phones, but if something can't be figured out, it would be better to state "I couldn't figure out how to change the primary shortcuts", instead of saying it couldn't be done and dinging Samsung. Or take the time to get it to work and say "yes, it can be done, but it took way to long to figure out and should be easier".

I hope he edits his reviews to fix his error.

A clarification:

You must have the Application Menu in customizable mode. Do this by opening the Application menu (with the bottom right home screen icon), then hitting the physical option menu button on the phone, finally click view.

From there, as said above, you can use the option button to access "Edit," which will allow you to change the botton four buttons.
