    Any way to get rid of the 3 things at the bottom of the home screen?

    I hate having all this junk on my phone, but have come to accept that there isn't much I can do about what's preloaded on the phone. NOW they've decided that I MUST have crap at the bottom of my home screen. The button to open the app drawer, I get that, but why do I have to have 3 other things there. I can change them to other things, but I just would rather have them gone. This is my biggest issue with the phone. I want what *I* want there, not forced to have some stupid widget or whatever it is there.

    The only thing you can do is install an alternate home launcher that allows for customization like adw launcher.

    Not sure why anyone would be opposed to having 3 additional launchable items on the screen that don't take up the normal screen real estate, but whatever floats your boat.
    I have CDO. It's like OCD except the letters are in alphabetical order, as they should be.

    I just don't like to be forced to have something on the screen that I don't want there. I want to take them off, but when you do the long press, instead of the trashcan it brings up a list of things to change it to. I hate having them there, 99% of the garbage in that list I'll never use. Just like having all that bloatware on there irritates most of you, having stuff I can't remove on my screen irritates me.

    Only option is to use adw launcher as your home replacement and it hads a customization to hide the dock.

    If they were of MY choosing I wouldn't have an issue with it, but it is items of THEIR choosing. That is my whole issue with it. I can only change it to something else of their choosing.

    You can change it to any app you have installed. Not sure what you mean?
