Sorry if I don't understand the lingo, but what is a scratchbox? In my word we call a test area a sandbox, or PoC(Piece of Crap) Box. I think that's what you mean.The Storm has cleared to an Incredible day! I ate an IceCream Sandwhich. Still needed JellyBeans. ;-)NEXUS!!!!!!

1. It's annoying and I'm obsessive with having my devices customized to the hilt.
2. Long-pressing home icon brings the "card deck" of homescreens up, and it would be great to only see the four I'm using and make it easier to see the small images in card-deck view.

My question is a little different. Two of my home screens are taken up by message and email. In other words, one home screen displays my most recent email and one displays my most recent msg. I would rather use these screens to put apps and widgets on like the other ones. Is that possible?

Just tap and hold the mail or message widget until it "lifts" off the screen and then drag it to the trashcan. You can now install whatever you want on that home screen. I did this pretty much as soon as I left the store. I didn't like the interface for reading emails/txts in the widgets and I didn't want people who were just playing with the phone when I was showing it off to be able to flick through my corporate or personal emails.

Well been awhile since I have revisited this thread, but from the day I got the incredible I was like, "I'll never fill up all 7 screens!". However I am now 1 screen shy of filling them up and when I find that must have widget or another slew of apps I would like to have access to it will be filled up. At the rate I'm going exploring games and apps it shouldn't be much longer!The Storm has cleared to an Incredible day! I ate an IceCream Sandwhich. Still needed JellyBeans. ;-)NEXUS!!!!!!

If you REALLY want to you can try a home screen replacement (Nexus Home, Helix Launcher, etc) and set that to default, but be prepared to not have access to any of the Sense widgets since they don't work on other home screens.
At some point (once the phone is rooted) there will probably be alternate ROMs that may be customizable but I don't recall every running into anyone who wanted LESS home screens, mostly those of us with Droids who wanted MORE.Android is all about Personal Choice: Droid RAZR HD, Droid DNA, SGSIII, SG Note 2, HTC One X+, Galaxy Nexus, Nexus4... Hating is so Apple... we're better than that!

It's kind of nice to have all the screens. Besides Home, which is fairly clean, this gives me room for categories: from left to right: pictures / mobile nav & wireless controls / apps for my business / home / favorite contacts (business & personal) / personal/fun apps / web bookmarks.
