    Pretty much like the title says. I have beautiful widgets and want more than just 3 screens. Any opinion would be appreciated!!

    no you dont need root.. there are home replacement options, such as home++ or gde or openhome.. also there is an app called Launcher++ that gives you 5 screens.. all these are available by simple download in the app market. launcher++ does nothing but gives you 5 screens, the other replace the whole home screen system

    Why would he have to root his phone to get more screens? A "home replacement" app will achieve this. Home++ seems to be the most popular around here. Then there's also GDE, DxTop, PandaHome and a few others.

    Update to 2.1. I tried a couple of launchers, and the only one I liked was the 2.1 launcher I got from this board.

    http://www.droidforums.net/forum/droid-applications/12239-new-apps-2-1-a.html

    I was lucky and never had an issue with the launcher. Since then, I have rooted, went with BB v1.1, and overclocked to 1GHz, and havent looked back since.

    While we don't know what is in the next OTA update, which will bring us to 2.1, there is a good chance it will come with a new launcher that will give us more than 3 homescreens. The update is not out yet. It will be out "soon"....as of a week or so ago.

    SG4.5 was my first rom after I rooted. Haven't changed it yet. It came with 5 screens. I also sometimes launch home++ which lets you choose 3, 4, 5, 6, or 7 screens.

    Trying to figure out how I can work in a "Bob Dammit, Bob" into my reply but I'm not sure if I can.

    nm..figured it out:)
