    Can you use Beautiful Widgets on a stock phone?

    Also, I use "My Tracks" for tracking. I'll have to check out AllSport.

    Pandora will be my first... ;)

    Yes, BW was the 1st thing I installed on my Epic 4G and it was just fine, even when I had my phone completely stock.

    and some kind of caller ID.

    I'm running Android on my old Touch Pro 2 right now so I'm willing to give stock search engines and keyboards a try before I decide to install apps.

    I'll check out My Tracks. AllSport was a free app of the day. (That's why Amazon App Store is on my list.)

    What's that going to take -- 30 seconds?

    I'll play around with the stock browser and music player, but I'll probably end up installing Meridian Player and Dolphin HD.
