    Hey!

    New to Android as of the release date of the captivate...came from a 3g and am enjoying the switch so far.

    When the home (soft key?) key gets pressed the phone used to take me to my middle page (set for 3). Woke up this morning and it's now taking me to the 3rd page, and I can't find a setting that pertains to the behavior of those keys anywhere. It's hugely annoying and I need help.

    I thought it went back to the last page you were on.

    This happened to me because I deleted my "empty" screens. If that's what you did, here's how to fix it:

    There are seven screens to chose from. Add screens until you've reached the max (7). Screen "4" is the "home" screen - the screen that will be displayed when you press the home key. Arrange your icons in a manner taking into consideration that this screen is your home screen. So let's say you have two empty pages, they should be page 1 and page 8. If you have 4 empty pages, they should be pages 1, 2, 6, and 7. Delete the empty pages.

    In case you don't know the key presses to do this, from the home screen:
    -Menu -> Edit
    -press '+' to add screens
    -arrange them so that the blank screens are on the outside (as mentioned above)
    -make your home screen page 4
    -delete the empty pages
    -Menu -> Save

    I hope I explained that right :)

    I am new to Android/Captivate too. BTW, did you know that if you press and hold Home button, the phone displays the list of recently used apps?

    I took that into account, I have used just the 3 screens since like day 2. I will have to double check to make sure though...thank you.
