    Welcome. Congrats on a fine purchase. Simply long press the widget. It should give your the option to resize. :)

    Widget is any program on your desktop that independently performs a function, rather than just opening up another program. Examples: clock (tells time) weather (shows weather report), battery widget (shows changes in battery power and sometimes phone temperature).

    What bbuck is referring to is this: Beautiful Widgets - Android app on AppBrain

    make sure the area you press on the homescreen is empty to begin with. if it doesn't work, reboot and try again?

    It is indeed sad, because YOU HAVEN'T EVEN ROOTED YET! Wait until you're playing with root until 5 in the morning! ;)

    You are asking questions because you are not afraid to learn. That beats the heck out of someone who just sits there and complains about the phone not working. You will get great advice from very patient people.
