  1. **Warning!** Make sure you backup your homescreen. If not, you could get locked in the WP7 theme like I did. Only way out now is a restore I suppose.

  2. I like the functional no huss no fuss homescreen of the iPhone. I see everything I need on a glimpse. No need to scroll to get to some apps that I want to launch.
