    Does anyone know of a way to modify the default HTC Scenes? Whenever I make changes and try to save them, I cannot overwrite the default scenes. All I can do is create a new scene with my modifications.

    good point, but there likely isnt a way to overwrite them. i never use more than one anyway.

    I tried the "scene" for work and "scene" for play, etc. Still using the same one :)

    It's not so much that I want to use different ones (at this point anyway). I assume that any widgets that are set up in those scenes are running in the background. If so, then I'd like to remove some of them since I am not using them. If they AREN'T running in the background, then I suppose it doesn't matter.

    I would like to be able to delete some of the custom scenes I've saved, but there doesn't seem to be any way to do that. I actually do use more than 1 scene -- I'm surprised someone at HTC didn't think to add a "delete saved scene" function.

    You can delete custom scenes. menu>settings>personalize>scenes. hold down the scene you wanna delete and a pop up menu will ask to either rename or delete. too babd it doesnt work on htc sceses.

    you used to be able to edit the htc screens when the hero was still a beta but i guess htc locked it out when they went official i used to have hero loaded on my g1 and that used to help with the lag time. blow up the HTC site with request for that feature to be put back in. they do listen i swear i get a nice twitter message from one of the htc devs everyday about what's going and when new patches are availible for each carrier and model. but he ussually keeps things hush hush till he can officially tell us but it's allways good to have an inside source even if it's only on the day it's officially released.

    I think this is the answer to the post I did yesterday. It is my finding too that HTC Scenes - once altered can only be saved in a new name. I did not find a way to delete or edit these scenes, to remove some widgets in those scenes.

    I wanted to do the edit or deletion purely to make the calendar, GMAIL etc inaccessible if I lose the phone and block someone finding the phone to view them by changing the scene to HTC WOrk or Travel for example (in these scenes, GMAIL and calendar are getting displayed).

    The App Locks are not giving opportunity to password protect those scenes. The locks (password protection) applied on the GMAiL/Calendar through App Lock Apps are not working (at least the first time one goes into those home screens after the change of the scene). I tried at least 3 app lock applications with the same result.
    The above is true also in respect of Call History and People. Though app locks work on Call History and People when accessed individually, if they are accessed through Phone, they are coming up for display (I do not intend to block the phone also to address the issue).

    If my above observation is correct, HTC left a hole for a back door entry to some of the apps I mentioned above (GMAIL, Calendar, Call History and People).

    Appreciate if someone who has found a solution or an app to address the above can respond (e.g. an App or method that can lock the HTC Scenes or an app that permits deletion or changes to the HTC Scenes, without of course screwing the phone functioning).

    My observations are in respect of Evo 4G (Sprint).
