    Curious as to how many pages you guys use on your homescreen?

    I find that 3 is a good amount for myself. It allows me to have a nice and simple homescreen, and a couple of pages with all the widgets i need for my daily tasks without being too cluttered and too tedious to scroll through all the pages.

    7 for me, I have plenty of stuff to put on them but often find it hard to find a complete set of icons that I can use for all my apps.

    I went from 7 to 5 and then down to 3, although from time to time I go back to 5. I just like things to be really simple, with very little clutter.

    7 for me. I use all I can get, if they aren't full of apps and stuff I need they'll be full with news and RSS feeds.

    3 at the moment. What I don't put on there I can easily access through app launcher.

    I'm only using 3 at the moment. One is my homescreen, with just extended controls and time/weather. One has my media, social networking, and games. The third houses utilities (market, maps, nav, barcode scanner) and access to my various accounts (DirecTV, State Farm, Verizon, etc).

    Folder Organizer really slimmed my homescreens down. I started with 5 and just couldn't fill them up. Widgets just aren't my thing. Tempted to go back to the Gingerbread launcher but not enough buttons on the dock. Need a custom launcher for that.

    I use 3 but could get away with 2. I have things categorized in folders with only what I use regularly on my main screen, widgets on another and misc apps on the third.

    Okay, don't laugh.....I probably only really need 5, but I use 7 because I want a couple of pages blank so I can appreciate whatever amazing wallpaper/theme I am using at the time.I don't want a bunch of junk covering up ALL of the pretty wallpaper.:) Does that make me a girly girl?

    I have 3 but one is empty. Been the same for a few months now so I think it's going to stay that way for a long time.

    Just 3 for me. Customised folders make up the difference.
