    For those of you using an open home, which one are you using and what makes you prefer it? I am thinking of trying one.

    I used it for a while, and it's actually a pretty good home replacement. I still prefer Launcher Pro and ADW Launcher for the customization, but it's really not bad and runs smoothly.

    Some good skins are Darkstar (based off of http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=589409) and Dark Home.

    Thanks! I just got Open Home. I tried Launcher Pro but it wouldn't display my contacts... My contact list was empty?

    Was it giving you the message "That application isn't installed on this device" or something to that effect?

    If so, you just need to change the shortcut to the actual Contacts application. Long press the shortcut, select "Change Shortcut", select "Applications" and then scroll down and select "Contacts."

    Then just choose the type of icon you'd like.

    If this isn't the problem you are having, then completely disregard this. Otherwise I'm not sure why it wouldn't be working.

    But yeah, Open Home is a pretty good and well maintained home replacement.

    Thanks. That was the problem. do you have only one home replacement on your phone? I was wondering if you had more than 1 home replacement on your phone if it causes issues.

    I actually haven't had more than one installed a time, but I don't see it causing any problems since you can only use one a time.

    I had launcher pro and adw launcher to see which of the three I would like the best and so far Touchwiz is still slightly winning but I'm giving launcher pro the benefit of the doubt. I really do like Launcher pro b/c of the 3D app list though. I think that Touchwiz is winning b/c I'm used to it
