I can't believe the Bionic has only 5 homescreens! I am so used to having lots of widgets, large calendars, large to do lists, pictures, etc on my home screens. Now I can't fit hardly anything on the 5 home screens of the Droid.

I am so bummed. This might be reason enough for me to return the phone.

ARGH. I love my new phone but this is a real disappointment.

Any way to customize it to 7 screens?

Get a home screen replacement like LauncherPro, ADWLauncher or GoLauncher

Haven't used one in a while but I know some of them go to 7 without issue.

On each of my phones, I always end up going back to Launcher Pro. So, I always have 7 screens.

In actuality, I reduce my Droid X to 5 via ADW EX. 5 is a sweet spot IMO. Helps me stay "consise."

I can't help but think you're looking for a reason to return the phone. You're talking about a minor software change (which others have directed you to already by changing your launcher). 'Hardly anything on 5 screens? Is your room real messy too? I ask this because it sounds like the whining of a 3rd grader that hasn't done any research.

Re: Am I the only one REALLY missing the 7 homescreens of Droid X

No, you are not. I came from an incredible 2 and I miss having 7 homescreens

About the only thing the Inc2 (Sense) had was this...and actually it was 21 screens given the fact that you could have profiles...but that phone SUCKED. Horrible signal and a "unknown" issue of not allowing bluetooth to keep sound and voice going if a text message came in while on the call. Validated that it happened on three separate Inc2's with 3 different headsets. #Fail.

I'll take 5 home screens and Motorola hardware anyday over the HTC.

Re: Am I the only one REALLY missing the 7 homescreens of Droid X

the 7 screens on the DX actually bugged me. I never used more than 3 anyway and the rest just sort of chilled there.

I never understood why they didn't make the extra screens optional. Default it to 3 screens, but let the users add more screens up to a specified amount if they so wish

I only use 5 on my DX, and I have the ability to run more with ADW Launcher Pro.

If you want 7 screens maybe we could trade my DX for your bionic. :p

I always used three too. I like the new blur launcher or I would use one of the replacements to dial it back to three.

Its not a big deal to me, but if I had a choice between 5 or 7 I would take 7. My Droid 3 was the same way.

You could have 7 screens in less time than it took you to write this post - Launcher Pro, ADW. Or you can grab Go Launcher and have as many screens as you want - have 50 if it turns you on.

That is the Beauty of Android! :D

I agree 5 is the sweet spot. I despise Blur and the wasteful, empty spaces found inside it's widgets. One of ADW EX, GO, and LPP is the way to go IMO.

Great! I didn't know you can customize the number of screens with a program! Thanks -- going to download Go Launcher EX right now to try. Never done this before so I hope it doesn't kill anything.

Oh and to the jacka$... who wrote that I am looking for an excuse to return the phone and I am a whining 3rd grader -- get a life. I am coming here for help. :rolleyes:

You're very welcome. If you're here for help you could have simply asked if there was a way to get more than 5 screens instead of saying how disappointed you were.. and thinking about returning it, etc... You set the tone of ignorance. Have a wonderful day :)

I'm using Launcher Pro. Not just because it gives you 7 screens, but it also gives you 3 scrolling docs with the ability to put 5 icons in each dock. I also changed the screen layout to 5x5. Looks awesome with qHD and a 4.3" screen!

Re: Am I the only one REALLY missing the 7 homescreens of Droid X

Wow this software is incredible! I am watching this great youtube video on how to set up the homescreens. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u5LISE8BU_E

The flexibility blows me away. I can't believe I have lived with my Droid X for 2 years without realizing I can customize all this!

One great thing about this software: you can create folders and throw apps in it. I just made a folder called VZW bloat and dumped all my unused icons in there (Blockbuster...)! Awesome.

Added screens to make 7 for now. May add a couple more later. Downloaded free INK theme -- it is gorgeous!

Thanks all. Very happy now. Oh and the BIonic rocks. 80% battery today despite playing with the phone nonstop for the last 6 hours (and talking for 2 hours with friend while shopping this am). Amazing. And lightning fast.

I struggle to fill 3 screens. Can't imagine what I'd put on 7, but I also don't really use many widgets.
