    OK so i have searched this. No find.

    How do you change the way the home screen is being displayed?

    Not the wallpaper itself, but the size and shape of the clock and whether it's even there or not.

    the clock is it's own widget. to change it, you have to remove it first. long press the clock til it highlights, then drag down to the trash. then long press the empty spot and select widget-clock. there are a bunch of different styles.

    The clock and weather are a widget. You can long press them and drag them to the "remove" button. then you can hit the + symbol and add new widgets. The options on different clocks are as follows: Analog Clock (Stock Android Clock) or Clock (HTC). The second one will have lots of options for clocks and sizes. Only one has the weather on it that I know of. You can also add separate weather widgets as well and there are different options for that as well.

    Hope this helps!!!
    Also in my signature I have a "HOW DO I" settings forum running. If you ask there I will respond pretty fast.

    I found going under Setting/Personalize and then clicking the "Clean Slate" option is the best. That way you can add anything you want via apps/widgets etc.

    Is there a way of removing Sprint widgets permanently, not just from home screen, such as NASCAR, etc?

    Press your finger on the widget and hold till you see the remove option at the bottom of the screen and then drag to the remove. Gone! ;)

    As far as removing the application, you need to visit the root section. They can only be removed after you root the phone, I believe with the toast method atm, which you can only do if you didn't do the OTA update on June 4th.
