    I have never used Widgets before I thought the icons were those LOL. I now have an SMS widget on my main screen along with a lot of others. My phone is also set to 5 pages. Now my phone is suffering major slowdowns. Is it a bad idea to go over 3 home screens and is there a program to monitor for Widgets using to much memory.

    Since you have 5 screens I assume you're using openhome or a similar app? I haven't used it myself but others reported an interface slowdown using it. If so I'm betting all slowness is because of that.

    Ya it wasn't to slow earlier. I'm wondering if all Widgets running are doing it. Odd though because still says I have 39 program men left. The processor must be maxed. Is there a program that shows CPU use?

    Yep. Open home has been my enemy. With open home running my phone memory was at 39mem. After I uninstalled open home I now have 91mem with all widgets running. Open homes mem cost is not worth the slowdown. The changes it does just sint worth sucking up over half my mem.
    It was also the cause of my slow keyboard responce in browser!

    Slowdown? Get some kind of task killer to kill shit running in the background.
