    but here is just a run down of what i want

    -i want a to use excell word n powerpoint on the daily so ill perfer an icon on today screen oh i have a powerpoint presentation in my email that i cant seem to view the attachment is not clickable (message just states there is n attachment)

    - google maps looks really nice n could be very usefully

    -a icon to access txt messages voice messages easier ... ihave noticed i cant just the pen to tap the arrow to switch from txt to voice i can only get it to work if i use the arrows on the d pad

    -internet icon

    -contacts icon

    - a calender n task icon - im already using both to organize would like a quick access especially the task at slow times of the day i check it just to stay productive

    - i cant seem to veiw any attachments from emails

    You are probably going to need some Today screen plug-ins based on what you have described you want to do. Two that come to mind that I have used in the past are Pocket Breeze and iLauncher. Both can be found at

    I use Pocket Plus and think it's great. There are a couple of different ways that I've had my phone set up.

    I had all the icons that I used frequently set up on my Today screen. That way if I wanted Google Maps or IE I just hit that tab.
    The only thing is that it wasn't the cleanest look because I had lot of icons. There was a scroll bar on the right.

    This is what I just changed it to... I set up icons for 4 folders. When I hit the folder icon it pulls down some more icons. It's a cleaner look and very similar to the iPhone.

    Another advantage to Pocket plus is that when you hit the "x" in the upper right corner it actually closes the program instead of minimizing it. This clears up memory and keeps the phone running at a decent speed.

    Good luck!

    +1 for Pocket Plus. It's going to take some time to get used to the phone and customizing it how you want it. I've never had a ppc before and after a month of installing/removing programs (not to mention, driving the wife insane spending endless hours here and at xda), I've finally gotten mine the way I like it. It's basic and has everything I need and use. I have mine setup similarly to wickedwheels, using 5 icons/folders and have all my programs listed below each one of those.

    Just be patient with it and backup it up (I'm using spb backup) so when you finally decide what you like, you can do a hard reset and install the programs you'll use.
