    I'm looking for an app that will show me the number of texts over the little message icon in my home screen. For example if I recieve 3 texts while I'm away a little "3" over the message icon. Same for email. Does anyone know of an app that does this?

    Not sure of an app forthat, but if you use LauncherPro, if you go into the settings for it and click on dock settings, you can have it do exactly what you said (assuming you have the mail and text messaging icons in the dock).

    Here's an image I found online that shows what I'm talking about:

    Ah, awesome. My only question about Launcher pro is - if I DL it now, will it totally erase the way I have everything setup on all my pages?

    handcent is pretty cool. I would recommend it. I just downloaded launcher pro and yes it will change your home screens. Totally changed all of mine. I spent like 30 min getting stuff back how I wanted and it was totally worth it. It is a lot better than the stock home.

    Well, you can always go back to the stock launcher and your setup will be the same as you left it, but upon installing launcher pro and using it, yeah you'll have to change things around.

    Cool, thanks. One last question - sorry, been a long day of trying to figure out my new Droid. My buddy said all he did was download the FB app from the store and he had an option to sync his pictures with contacts or whatever. I downloaded the FB app from the store as well instead of going under my accounts and adding my facebook account. However, I don't see that option in facebook when I go under the menu. Any ideas?

    Hm, not sure about that one. All I remember doing was logging into facebook and the first screen after you log in asks you if you want to sync your facebook contacts. Maybe you hit next too fast and missed it? No idea man, sorry.

    Only thing I can think of is going into your apps and clicking on the "Social Networking" one and find facebook on there and log in through that and see if it gives you the option to sync after logging in.

    Or you can go into settings from the home screen, going to accounts and selecting facebook. If it doesn't already have one set up you will log in and then it will ask if you want to sync. I'm pretty sure that's the same thing the facebook app does.

    Thanks, I'll try that. I'm also having a problem where my Gmail isn't pushing emails. I go to a major college and they use gmail as their email, but I can't log in directly using gmail, have to go in and set up the imap and smtp addresses and such. However, if I use the built in Droid email with all those settings it pushes fine. Maybe just some kind of Gmail bug? I'll post if the FB problem gets resolved, thanks for the help.

    I go to North Carolina State University. I'm still having 2 big issues if anyone has any advice. My gmail won't push my emails. If I hit refresh, they come up, but not push. The built in Droid email service works with the same email, so not sure why gmail isn't pushing. Also, I have no facebook option to "sync with contacts" to get the pictures. I've downloaded and uninstalled a few times, and I never get the option to sync at all. Has anyone else had this happen?
