    I just got my first android phone, the Eris. It is a downgrade from my iPhone 3Gs, but any phone in America is if you iPhone is jailbroken, but I upgraded networks.

    Anyway, I am still trying to figure out the apps, widgets, and tweaks to get my phone to do what I want. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Here are the things I still need to figure out:
    -How to get my calendar on my lockscreen
    -Enable tethering without paying for it
    -How to disable certain aspects of a particular bluetooth device (ex, not stream music but still take calls on my car kit)
    -Shopping list (similar to shopshop on Apple's app store)
    -Rotate wallpapers (bosspaper from cydia)
    -An app that brings up everything around separated by categories (AroundMe in Apple app store)

    Please help point me in the right direction. Thanks Everybody!
