    You can't turn it off unless you get a custom rom or an alternative home screen off the market.

    Do you mean default as in 2.1 default?

    LauncherPro is pretty slick and basic.

    I personally like GDE a lot, since it has some nice added features like the cube effect, and application tray widgets.

    and with GDE, it doesn't seem the color of the notification bar will change...is that always that way or am i doing something wrong? i installed a few themes that show a different colored notification bar, but mine is always black...

    GDE has the most themes available, many of them free.

    To the OP: As stated Sense cannot be disabled on the Incredible. It CAN however be turned off on the EVO.
