    I just got the phone today, and must say that I am very pleased with the phone! It's got a great feel in my hands. Also it has more bars than my wife's Nexus S. I'm more than disappointed with the lack of Google voice integration, but that's Boost's fault and no one else's.

    My question is how do I change the ID badge from the launcher? I want it to access the internet like stock android.

    I am just a little anal about crapware. TIA

    Ask the guys in the boost store, they can help you maybe also can let them know how ugly is the ID on the dock. lol.

    PS: Pandahome apps should give u more fun as I'm using it. or root it!

    Wait, what's this about Google Voice integration? Does it not work on Boost Mobile?

    Just use a different launcher.
    Launcher pro is what I am using right now.
    AWD Launcher and Go launcher are also good alternatives. There are many more on the Market.

    Many of them give you the option to use the 3 icon style dock.

    Correct. Apparently google voice doesn't do the call forwarding. IE you can have incoming text and calls from GV, but if you reply/call back it comes from your boost number.


    Exactly what I was looking for! Thanks

    I emailed boost about google voice last night. I was mildly impressed when I got a call this morning about the email. He apologiesed about it, and said that they don't offer the full service, butt would escalate the issue for future consideration.

    I was very hesitant about switching to boost, but this is a good first impression.
