    Is there a way, or an app, or a launcher that will allow me to change the grid size on the home screen? WidgetLocker allows me to do this on the lock-screen and its so nice. There's too much wasted space between Widgets / icons as it is stock.

    I just tried it. Not quite what wanted but it might be helpful in the future. Thanks for the suggestion.

    I'm more looking to change the native grid size so that I can space out calendar, weather, and toggle widgets the way I want. Specifically, I want 5 rows instead of 4.

    Go Launcher EX can do this as well: your options are either 4x4, 4x5, or 5x5...

    LauncherPro Plus.. some things aren't available in the free version, but I believe the row/columns options are.

    Launcher pro did it. Thanks guys.

    Now, can anyone recommend a replacement for moto's 1-touch txt/caller widget? Moto's doesn't work real well in launcher pro.

    I assume you mean the contact quick tasks and how the pictures are constantly getting zoomed in? I just deal with it and resize them, much to my annoyance after all of these months. I've searched the market a little for an app that can do what you've described a few weeks ago, I came up with nothing.

    I use a program called 'Elixir' I found for free in the market. Create a widget with your desired dimensions, icons, ect.

    ADW launcher lets you change the number of columns and rows for homescreens and the appdrawer.

    I like it quite a bit.

    go launcher ex

    will allow you to change the grid size e.g. 4x4, 5x5, 6x6, and even more I'm looking for a rom that does this because I'm sick of motoblur and I can't stand 4x4 grid sizes anymore...eclipse rom would be better with the custom grid sizes.
