You can't do it natively. But if you buy aHome or dxTop from the market, you can have i think somewhere between 5 and 10 home screens.

I'm running Open Home with 7 screens and it's been working pretty well so far. It will even allow auto-rotation on the home screen without opening the keyboard! Well worth the $4 IMO.

Panda Home is Free and works somewhat right now but they're coming out with an update to make it function 100%.

I liked Open home, but I noticed a slight lag loading up apps from the home screen. Not a huge deal if you want/need 7 screens. I guess its to be expected when running a full skin over stock 2.0

Default new folders

I quickly ran out of room on the home screen of my droid so I started to create folders to organize the apps I wanted on my desktop. menu >> add >> folders. To rename them just open them and do a long press on the folder name. After that just drag and drop, I have found it is quicker to just open a folder instead of trying to navigate to different pages.

exactly the developer created this app as a bare bones complimenting the full home ++ app. if you want or like the stock home but want more screens than this is your app.

I used Droid folders and BetterCut to create folders, which was great for a while, but wanting a few more widgets I installed Launcher+ which is excellent. I think I'll have enough room for a long while now.

Use Home++. It is a pretty stable home replacement and gives you many screen options, plus has a shortcut bar at the bottom and hides the notification bar(optional). I started with Pandahome, but quickly moved to Home++. I tried Launcher but it was laggy. I dont use Home++ anymore, because I am rooted and have 5 screens, but I def reccommend Home++. Try it, you will like it better than stock home screens, IMO.

Can you change the number of homescreens with root? Can you just add 2 to the default home?

if you go to droid-life.com, you can download FOR FREE the .....

2.1 launcher
2.1 htc launcher (with phone and browser tabs next to launcher)
2.1 music app
2.1 gallery (awesome)
2.1 media dock/clock (with night mode)

you'll have 5 screens. it's a bit laggy for some people, but it works fine for others.

I'm using the 2.1 launcher, which gives you 5 home screens and the 3D app launcher. Overall it's good but sometimes going back to the Home screen after being in another app will be laggy and it won't load anything, and I have to press the Home button a few times for it to load my widgets and shortcuts. But I like the 3D app launcher and the 5 home screens too much to go back to the stock Home.

Default adding homepages on Samsung Galaxy Player 5

I was just running out of space on my Galaxy Player. It comes with 7 pages. While on an application home page, I clicked on the menu button, hit "edit", and a new page was added.
