We KNOW Motoblur sucks! I'm getting tired of people saying this phone sucks based solely on Motoblur. Here's what you do to unlock the hidden potential of this phone:

1) Click Market
2) Type in ADW or Launcher Pro
3) Click Download
4) Profit

The Atrix will now make your bed and cook your dinner.

I love Sense and have ways preferred sense but other then my battery life complaint, Blur is okay when supplemented with some other widgets like Beautiful Widgets, Favorite Peoples widget.

I actually like the flexibility of the Motoblur widgets with resizing and setting up multiple messaging widgets.

The only feature that I really miss from my current favorite phone (MyTouch 4G) is when someone calls with the MT4G, you can hit the menu key and dismiss the call with a text message and choose to set a reminder. This is really handy and it even sets a remainder in your notification bar to call the person back. I have searched high and low for a replacement in the market but no one has done anything that actually works.

But I do agree with you, Motoblur is not that bad and you can always turn a majority of it off.

Just a tip. ADW Laucher and Laucher Pro both allow you to resize the widgets you put on the homescreens. Also, with either launcher you can have them resemble the Sense UI. Beautiful Widgets in the Market does a fantastic job at implimenting the Sense Clock and Weather widget. You can also customize the Dock to look like Sense.

If you search around in the forums or google, you should be able to find the file for the dock and you can add it in one of those launchers. Give it a shot.

Only problem with launcher pro and adw is finding a good email widgit that supports exchange. Any ideas. I bought launcher pro plus when I had the nexus s and downloaded a good email widgit but it doesn't support moto phones. Figures.

I'm still a noob but what do you mean find the file and it to the launcher? It sounds very interesting. Can you please elaborate for me? Thanks.
