    Go to the market and download Panda Home, this will give you a nice stock android feel, and it makes the settings menu return to stock form :) Part of touchWiz is gone, looks like its not as tightly integrated as I thought :)

    Thanks for the info. I really like this, Especially the side dock things. And It's much quicker to change panels than TwLauncher.

    Is panda home free?
    Is Dx top free?
    Also I heard about Open Home, but when I look for it in the market i see a thousand Open Home skins, but not the original Open Home that needs to be installed - does anyone know how to look for it?

    Panda Home is free. It's the only home screen replacement I've used, but I love it. More like the default Android. Also, it's a lot quicker and snappier than TW.

    I've heard good things about Open Home. It is $3.99 in the market. Best way to find it is to search for "open home full". Comes up second on the list for me.

    dxtop I think was $2.99 or $3.99, either way worth every penny. Just bought GDE to check out.

    Interesting enough Every Home Replacement I tried the TW Settings menu was there. Is there something I'm Missing? (Tried aHome and Panda Home mostly)

    I feel dumb. I can access them using the Menu Button. Using the Settings icon in the Tray launches the TW Settings.

    when you say stock, do you mean by the android's default UI?

    I wonder how GDE looks on this thing. Once mine comes in, I'm definately giving it a shot.

    I hear using Panda Home and the like really means you are running two homes at the same time.

    But what settings are missing? This is my first android phone so I dont have anything else to go on(and I'm loving this phone btw).

    with panda you are not missing anything really.

    Just pisses me off the CONTACTS in touchwiz.

    Anyone found out a way to go back to original contacts?

    aContacts + advanced launcher from xda is the closest you can get
