     Open the folder and long press on the top bar that says "Folder." It should bring up a dialog that lets you edit the title.

     Unfortunately there's no way to do that without rooting your phone. If you just simply don't want to see them anymore, you can download Launcher Pro Plus (paid, I know...) and set which apps you want hidden in the preferences. Otherwise, you can root your phone, download Titanium Backup (another paid app), and freeze the applications you don't want anymore. Deleting them will prevent OTA firmware updates from being pushed to your phone.

     The build quality seems substandard. They are really good phones, no doubt, but they just don't seem to hold up.

    I think Samsung generally has a bit better build quality, although sometimes the phones feel a bit plasticky. I haven't had any experience with the Infuse, but I've generally disliked Samsung's UI in the past. For whatever reason, I've felt they've gotten bogged down too easily.

    If you like the Infuse, you should spend some considerable hands-on time with it in the store. Call/text friends, browse the webs, play games...all that shit. If it keeps up with you and you like the experience, I'd say pull the trigger. Otherwise, I'd consider the Moto Atrix.

     ADW EX is another great launcher, but I prefer Launcher Pro.

     Thank you. Moto Atrix just doesnt do it for me camera and screen size wise. I get what you are saying about a plastic feel, i mean i would have a case on it, but i do get what you mean

    youknowlarry said: Just a comment on this: running a task killer on your Android device is counterintuitive to the operating system you're running. Android OS does a really good job allocating memory to front-running applications already, so a task killer isn't necessary at all; in fact, it gets in the way of what your phone is trying to do. Task killers also run in the background continuously so most people actually notice decreased battery life.

    This is why I keep a body glove cover and a good screen protector on mine, because I am fairly certain that I would have destroyed it by now if I didn't.

     I have the Droid X. No case, no screen protector. Just a minor nick on the corner from the handful of times I've dropped it on concrete/asphalt. The screen is completely unscathed.

    Werd.

    I still need to uninstall my app killer and maybe root my phone.

    i don't use a case or a screen protector either. i have a tiny nick (not a jungle larry) in the screen from dropping the face directly on a pointy rock, but it's not noticeable unless you know where to look.

    Jdmeg, have you had any issues with syncing your thunderbolt to your pc? I have and did a chat with htc, they referred me to a help center for more support.

    Some people are reporting issues with the recent thunderbolt update too. Have you had any problems?
