    Okay I downloaded OpenHome, now curious as to how I go about getting more than the three screens. I've searched, but found minimal information as to how to do it...

    With Open Home running. click settings, more, open home settings, number of screens, 7. Once it loads go ahead and place something on each screen. It does not seem to be smooth flipping through screens until something is on each screen. Then restart your phone. If you don't select Open Home as default the phone will restart with the 3 screen default. Then you can switch between using or not using Open Home. I prefer it this way so I can have to different setups.

    Menu -> More -> Open Home Skins -> Android default skin
    You get stock android look with 7 screens. You can download icon packs but I'm not sure if any look stock.

    I have a question, am I the only one having issues with force close on Open Home?

    No problem iawd1. I've found this to be the best place to get answers for the phone.

    Thanks michaelkahl. I couldn't figure that one out. I've only seen the force close once. That was after selecting a new theme. I downloaded more than ten free themes and just kept changing until I saw them all. It forced closed once. I couldn't figure out how to get back to the defaults.

    Is there a way to make the Open Home screen stay there? Because when I press Home, it goes back to default. Can I change that?

    While in Open Home, click settings, more, task manager. look for Home. There you can clear defaults. then back out and the next time time you hit the home button check the check box for default and select open home.

    Good question by the way. that actually helped me. thanks.

    Ha! I've been attached to this phone non-stop since last Friday.

    If your into video games check out SNESiod. It's so cool to play the old school games.

    Where do you find Open Home to download it. Did not see it in the market. I am using the Motorolla Droid.

    I did a factory reset today and Open Home stopped doing the Force Close. No crash since.

    What can I search for to find the Full version of Open Home, without having to scroll through the 100s of skins?

    Never mind. I realized as I typed this question that maybe searching for "Open Home full" might work, and voila! lol
