    I would say run the trial version for a while and see what happens. SPB also has a 30-day, no questions asked return policy.

    For what it's worth, it seems to be working ok on my AT&T Tilt 2.

    George, do think it is worth it im just geeting bored with the phone and it looks like the stuff with 3.5 is endless or is it overwhelming just scared to use it ive seen some pretty good complaints in the spb forum board mostly about the battery life they were saying they have no apps running but the phone would drain super fast so idk what to do.

    Mobile Shell is highly customizable and for some, that can be overwhelming. You not only have all the widgets to choose from but also different styles/sizes of widgets. Then there's the different backgrounds for the Lifestyle pages, colors for the Professional pages, and the layouts of the contact pages. You can spend hours re-arranging widgets and still find room to tinker with the appearance.

    With regards to the power issues, I haven't experienced any power drains in using Mobile Shell. I've had the new 3.5.1 Beta running on the Tilt2 most of the day and haven't seen any increase in power loss so far.

    Is it worth it? The best way to find out is to download the trial version and see for yourself. You can get it directly from SPB or over at the WMExperts Software Store.

    Do you have a link for the Beta? I looked on the SPB website and could not find it mentioned anywhere that I could see. thanks!

    And fwiw, I really love this shell of theirs! Bought it just about the same day I got my VZW TP2 and been using it ever since. But I must admit, I like the TF3D as well. What I have found, especially when in E-Mail, is that both have some part I love, as well as both have something missing that I need. So for now, each still lacks just enough that I have to switch between both.
