    Best buy mobile said 12, he heard that from a motorola droid meeting. 3 screens doesn't seem like enough:thinking:

    im pretty sure you can... but i think the only way is to add an app... look for a home screen app in the market place...

    The Eris is running the HTC Sense UI, which I believe gives you 7 home screens.

    ahome and panda home can give you more as well as giving you very nice new themes.

    aHome and Open Home both allow you to add more panels. They also have a few other features as well. Be careful though... I'm not sure if they are tuned to the Droid yet.... (2.0 and a bigger screen). I think some apps will go through some growing pains while bugs start showing up with all these new users and their Droids.

    ok, i guess were stuck with just 3 home screens:(
     
  15. Once 2.0 has been on the market for a bit and gets a little wider audience, we'll see all these issues go away.

    I have no experience with the two mentioned add on apps aHome or Open Home but I did have a Sprint Hero with the Sense UI for a few weeks and although these UI overlays add a ton of customizations they also seem to slow down the phones a lot. Maybe with the Droid's processor or 2.0 it will be different but I'm sticking with and loving the speed and flow of stock Android.

    I have seen multiple screens on the store phone (Droid at verizon) but I don't know how to do it yet myself tomorrow, I hope the app is free unlike ahome, I will ask the Verizon employee that had it on his phone. Im sure if it's a Verizon app someone will make it available to the masses.

    Maybe there's 4 different "modes" (weekend, work, etc), and each one has 3 home screens, totaling 12? I know I read that the Eris has 3 modes, 7 home screens each.
