    So does anyone actually use the "Scenes"? For those that are unsure what this is, its where you can setup different profiles so that on the weekend you have a different set of 7 screens than you do during the business day and etc.

    Does anyone actually use this? I have never touched it in my phone since I have owned it. Its hard enough for me to keep up with what I want on my 7 screens let alone switch them up for different profiles.

    hahaha, GREAT question. I actually set like 3 different Scene's up when I first got the phone, but have found that I stick with the First one I did, I use all the real estate of the 7 screens and that seems ok. I set up a cool scene with everything nicely organized but still stick with one. I think those with specific uses for it will use the scene's (work, home, etc.)

    lol, I'm interested to see how everyone else uses theirs...

    :cool:

    You know, if I had certain apps or whatever for a job or something, I'd probably use another scene.

    Otherwise, nope. One scene. I don't even save it lol. I think if we only had 3 screens, I'd use scenes. But I've just got it set up so my main things are on the first screen, and the rest are in the surrounding screens. It's about as efficient as I can get it, so there's the fewest touches possible to get to the particular apps or widgets I use most often

    Yeah, I'm in the same boat as Cooolone. When I got it, I spent quite a bit of time thinking through the various scenes and setting them all up. Haven't even looked at them since something like week two.

    I don't use them from place to place, but I have 'themes' that I spent long time setting up, so I can change the whole setup when the mood strikes me :)
    I LOVE that I can change my themes as I feel fit :)

    If I could modify/remove the default scenes I probably would use them a little more. As it is, you can only create new ones and modify those.

    Yeah, you can start out with one of the default ones, then change it however you please and name it whatever you want so you can get back to it whenever you want :)
    I adore this feature. It's like themes on my Blackberry <3

    Same here. I dont like everything being cluttered up. Just pretty much the browser, messaging, email, music, market and calender are it for me.

    I use a scene for work that is full of alot of widgets and apps on about 4 screens. And I have a different scene for when I go out at night, more jazzy wallpaper, less apps, different clock. Just kinda jazzy looking. But thats about it.

    I have 2 scenes saved when I first bought the hero. Only use 1 and I only use 5 of the 7 screens at that.
