    Hi,

    Until yesterday the s2 home button always took me back to the main screen (7 pages, <Phone><contacts><messaging><apps> buttons on the bottom...etc)

    now it takes me to a screen that I haven't come across in the three weeks I've had the phone. By default it's a similar blue to the background of this website, the menu button allows edit->add shortcuts hide/show shortcuts scroll bar at bottom of page and settings which has time and weather options.

    there is a cross to close it down in the top right corner and another symbol which swithches between maybe silent on&off??? I can't work out the hyroglyphs....

    I don't like it... how do I change where the home button sends me?

    ~Thanks for your time...

    Can you do the homekey+power thing to take a screenshot and post it?

    I've seen a thing that looked like another lockscreen, similar to the ones you see on an android emulator.

    What you want is Home Manager in the Market. It's free and allows you to set your home button function as you wish.

    I am experimenting with Go Launcher and this is how I switch between launchers.
