    hi new user here, just got the phone over the weekend and love it! so far the best phone i have ever owned. is there any way to make the notification bar bigger? i have big fingers and so far that seems to be my only problem is trying to drag that bar down to see my notifications. if it could be like 5 pixels or so wider it would be much better.

    you dont have to tap right on it, start above it and swipe down. like touch the speaker grill and swipe down, it should "catch"

    Also you can press Menu/Notifications - you might find that easier.

    this can be done with reskining once we have root but you'd have to probably rewrite the the size values to make it work. it's been done with other skins so it should not be that hard for a skinner to retool.

    Thanks! I too am of the "big finger" persuasion and that's truly a frustration saver! :)
