    All I know is one's more expensive then the other. Any reason not to go with the cheaper one (Better Cut)?

    That's why I purchased. The one thing that sucks is you can't change the message and mail icon without it reverting back to default. Other then that sweet. Basically a one times use once you get everything set up, but it's nice.

    Nope, it always reverts to default. Don't think they want us changing it

    I tried better cut and some of the icons only seem to change with sense disabled. Actually it seems more like the icons are being added to the default home instead of sense.

    well i gave up on bettercut, if i can't customize every icon i use on my homescreen it is kind of useless IMO. Having all the icons custom then the hokey mail box on there kinda kills it for me.
