    i dont know the answers to all of your questions so i will just answer the ones i know.. to bring icons to your home screen just press and hold the icon and you can move it anywhere. to save pictures and ringtones from your MMS just press and hold over the picture or song and select save to memory card.... I would use wifi anytime possible its usually faster then 3g but if you have full 3g bars i wouldn't bother with wifi.. the performance difference would not be that great and you save battery with wifi off.

    To hide icons, you can download the homescreen replacement app Panda. In their settings, you can hide the icons you don't want. To prevent the screen from locking every time it goes dark, install the Screen Mode Widget. It's a little widget that toggles between three modes: Sleep Auto: Normal screen action, only power/lock button locks/unlocks phone, still slide Awake Stay: Power/lock button, camera button, or volume buttons wake and unlock the screen, no need to slide (sliding is unnecessary IMO, never hit the button accidentally). Also great because if you just slide the keyboard out it's already unlocked! Screen Stay: Screen never locks, just stays awake unless you lock it with the lock button
