    Ok I pretty sure I didn't change my home screen settings to 7 but now it will not allow me to uncheck the box
    I asked TMO but of course they gave me the standard "I'm sorry you will have to do a full factory reset"... It takes me like 3 hours to get my phone set back up the way I want it
    Any help would be greatly appreciated

    Leave it be. There is no difference in speed from 5 to 7 screens!

    Well here are you options

    Either A) let it be and enjoy 7 screens, I'm sure when you go app hunting, you will find things or widgets that take up a lot of room.

    B) Do a factory reset and have fun installing all those widgets and apps.

    or

    C) install a home replacement launcher, like adw launcher from the market. Just to be fair, there are others like launcher beta pro, helix, zeam, and aHome.

    now I have adw launcher and its new update allow skins, which are sweet by the way.

    Well anyways, I know that adw launcher allows you to choose your screen at anytime. I can go from 7 to 3, to 5 to 6 in 5 minutes WITHOUT factory reset.

    so there you go, have fun :)

    Which brings up the question: Why I'm the world does it require a factory reset to go back to 5 with Espresso? That just seems strange...

    When you check the box to go to 7 screens, it brings up a message telling you that the only way to go back to 5 screens is by doing a full reset of the phone.

    Its just the direct connection that HTC has put to link directly to the Android OS system.

    Its a flaw really, but not a "I hate this phone and I"m gong to samsung" flaw.

    It can be fixed with an easy and FREE app.

    Its very strange that this has to be done. I guess that the UI can add on to itself, but cant delete anything about itself unless through the factory reset.

    Ohhh, just the record, whenever you are on the ADW launcer and change from 3 screens to any number, it does restart itself, but like i said, since its just an overlapping User Interface, it can do that easily.

    sooo everytime you chance the number of screens, press the physical home key, and you will have a popup that comes up asking you if you want ADW as your default, or Htc sense, pick adw, and tada, your good to go.

    I second that comment before me about the support sucks from samsung

    (I would have said it first had I gotten on here earlier).

    I mean come on people.....

    Froyo is out already, why didn't samsung see this coming and just ship their new phones with froyo?

    Why did they have to do the same thing with the behold, and ship it with an older version, and promise a new one.

    Hands down, the samsung vibrant is a good phone.

    Its fast, its sleek, its beautiful, but the company that makes it screwed some people with the behold II.

    The know they screwed up because then why dont they release the source for the behold drivers?

    Because they know that we can put 2.1 on there and make them do the right thing.

    This android experience was suppose to be the spawn of something great, but samsung is basically trying to do a "1 upgrade per ever 200 dollar phone" deal.

    I wont be suprised when history repeats itself.

    That why I went off course and when with a HTC slide

    It didn't ship with froyo because google release the source well after the gs was built and in testing in the US and released in Asia and Europe! Not that I like samsung but c'mon guy use an argument that makes sense
