    I was reading up on the Nexus One the day it launched and found out Verizon wouldn't carry it until later I bought the Droid that day.

    but on google's website it says Android 2.1, which I believe my phone upgraded to the day I got it, would have 5 home screens...

    I still only have 3, how do I get 5?

    you upgraded to 2.0.1. from 2.0 like the rest of us.

    go to Menu--> settings --> about phone and scroll down to "firmware version"


    we're getting 2.1 "soon" so we will get 5 home screens

    You are running 2.0.1 right now.

    Soon 2.1 will be released which supports 5 homescreens

    No problem! Glad we could clear that up for you.

    Just to let you know there are a couple of threads regarding 2.1, so I recommend you go check those out. All news about 2.1 is covered there.
