    I'm guessing you have a Verizon Pre Plus. The earlier version - sold by Sprint- had the button/trackball in the gesture area. It didn't really add any value by most accounts and was not included in the Verizon Plus version.

    And welcome aboard! Finding everything you need so far?

    Hi daymeon, and welcome to the P|C forums!

    There are two Pre devices: the Pre (Sprint) and the Pre Plus (Verizon). The Sprint Pre has the little button (it is not a trackball) in the gesture area, and the newer Pre Plus from Verizon doesn't have the button, but has a set of lights under the gesture area that light up instead, along with more memory and RAM.

    I heard the Pres with the ball are cooler than the ones without it.

    only the pre owners with the balls to truly use them -- what a fun device -- to the OP look around there are so many fun and interesting things you can do -- good luck

    lol thanks guys....and this forum and site have been very helpful and thanks for answering the question and yes it is verizon.

    this forum is a lot more lively than i expected which is good but im not new to homebrew n hacking i mean im not an "advanced" like i cant make my own apps or programs but i can use whats out there normally i have done this stuff with other devices such as the psp when homebrew used to be huge on it

    the one thing i want to be able to do but it dont seem possible or at least yes is basically put the homescreen to use...more like a desktop i would like to be able to put maybe some widgets and apps on the main screen and not have to open the launcher menu all the time...

    That's not how webOS was designed. The home screen is more of a backdrop which the "cards" sit in front of when minimized. And because it isn't an 'active' background, you won't see any little widgets like android.
    If you want to make your phone's home screen more active, simply stop closing applications when done with them - keep them open as minimized cards.

    Check out "ActiveCard" in the App Catalog. This will do what you describe. It's an app that you can run fullscreen that allows you to add widgets like the weather, your calendar, etc.

    and yeah but still just would be quicker it seems and i mean i wish when i had them minimized and by minimized you mean how they get really small right? But i wish i could at least have those tiled on there when it does that than the scrolll

    Me thinks it's the other way around...no ball = more memory... I guess if we are going to call it a ball, my pre is like Lance Armstrong.
