    Without rooting the phone:

    Is there anyway to increase or unlimit the number of desktops on the motorolla droid? :motdroidhoriz:

    Some of the widgits seem nice but take up way too much space. Thanks.

    Without rooting your best option is to try out some of the different home replacement apps. GDE, Home++, PandaHome, OpenHome, dxtop, or whatever else you can find. ;)

    You can try Launcher+ if you just want to add screens and not change the look of the UI.

    Thanks for the replies, Launcher+ is pretty good so far.

    Launcher+ made my Droid VERY slow and coming off the Dock and from other apps it would take as long as 5 seconds to reload all the widgets and shortcuts.

    Loosing the snappy speed of the Droid for the extra screens wasn't worth it for me, I can wait for 2.1 update to get 5 screens and still have fast response.

    If you try launcher (or other Home replacements) use it for a few days and then switch back to the stock home screen and watch how much faster it is.

    Try to remember you are using a hacked version of 2.1 ported from a different phone. I bet you $100 in Virtual money that when we get the official 2.1 for our Droids the native Home pages will be as fast or faster than what we have now with the offical 2.0.1 update.
