    Morning folks. Gonna stop by the repair shop today on my way into work. Hopefully I will get some good news about my 925. When I called yesterday, the repair man hasn't tested the phone again. I like them but they are slow as hell because they have too much business. It is a tiny 3 man shop pretty much 1 person doing all the repairs...
    The local phone repair store which is also a nokia and samsung care store as well has 5 to 6 staff and only one is an engineer that can fix the phones and is only in on Tuesday and Thursday.

    I can't. I used to use 3 for,my natural life with Android...until when I set up my Touchpad to run Jelly Bean. It was so much cleaner to have the setup I described with the one home screen, I use that now as my default - whether, phone, tablet or phablet.
    I wanted more home screen to be honesty at least 15.

    What was for lunch? I'm always open for ideas...
    A sandwich in the sun. I always bring some fruits and a box of vegetables with me though.

    Funny enough, I only reorganize my home screen whenever I get a new handset. I usually leave the apps that I use alot but don't want on my home screen in the app list. I just list the functional stuff on the front and keep it moving...
    I used to do it pretty often. Now I'm quite happy with how I have it. With a 720 screen you have enough space for three large tiles (my email tile just partially, it shows the sender of the message and this is enough) and two rows of small tiles. So I have a big Whatsapp tile, a big pictures tile, and the big email tile, and the essentials as small tiles in between.

    These guys are independent. They are on my short list of 2-3 repair shops I've used over the past that have given me best results. They are pricey but are willing to take on difficult repairs. I've given them my fair share of cluster**** filled phones to fix and they've done a nice job. It was the same place I took that VZW 8X to have both the screen and housing swapped out that I posted pictures here last fall...

    Of course you wanted more. You'd be scrolling for days with all that to find anything...

    I actually have only 1 wide tile and one medium tile on my 8X, the rest as small icons. I used to do that scrolling on the home screen too because I kept the WP7 large and medium tiles look, but I now have a tight scroll free look. On my Nokia I have 1 wide tile, 2 mediums and the rest as small.

    I'll post screen shots for my 8X when I get to work so that this post doesn't sound so complicated...

    Mine is the same way. Its a family shop, with the owner and his wife in charge. She loves iOS and he likes Android. I usually don't call them much, and they aren't the best at returning my calls either. They do better with following up in person than over the phone.

    I learned my lesson with them a long time ago: always have a spare phone and add two days onto any repair time they quote you...

    For the record, clear crystal cases and the 8X don't look well together aesthetically...

    Looking at the calendar and it may snow on Monday. I need to start looking at the weather tomorrow as I'd rather the GF and I not get stuck in Atlantic City because of snow (she'd spend half the time whining about that)

    For me, Zune would be a factor.

    I'm still amazed how ****ty Xbox Music still is. And MSFT knew this dismantling was coming. I think it was the right move, but their transition had been slow as usual...

    I stopped using a lot of apps that give notifications. I don't have Skype, Viber, Facebook, Twitter, so I don't need to have many tiles on my screen in direct view.

    I started to write this ages ago, but I had to go to a meeting. I don't remember what I wanted to write additionally.
