    First of all, I love my pre and couldnít be happier with the OS. However, there are some things that I hardly, if ever, utilize. One of them is the launcher button. Itís just so much easier to swipe up to open and close the launcher. I also forget about the launcher wave, but it looks awesome to show friends I guess. Thereís probably a bunch more Iím forgetting. Are there any features you guys hardly use?

    (Not even mentioning the button in the gesture area cause thatís a given)

    Lol, I don't use the launcher button, but I use the button in the gesture area all the time. It minimizes notifications (which I don't know how to do except with the button) and sends away the launcher (which yes, can be accomplished with a swipe up, but the button is easier for me).

    I used to never use the wave bar, but now that I hid the quick launch bar, I use it all the time.

    Yes, hardly ever use the wave, center button or the phone/voicemail.

    I never use the documents app, built-in music player, Bluetooth or Amazon MP3 store.

    Features, what features? I think I spend more time tweaking my phone to realize it even has features to be used (lol) But seriously, I don't use the in-built feature, "Switch Applications" in the advanced gesture.

    a back swipe can minimize notifications as well

    I love the advanced gesture tweak.

    the featues I don't use are the 'call voice mail' because I can't reprogram it to call youmail, and the launcher icon in the quicklaunch bar.

    I don't use the wave much either, because I leave the apps open that are shown on it.

    x2, good for use when not looking at the phone.... I like something tactile.

    If you tap on the screen (anywhere that doesn't have a notification) it will minimize all notifications.

    I also don't use the launcher icon at all any more.... and only use the "phone" when talking to the wife mostly, then again I hate talking on the phone in general..... text, web, e-mail or face to face (except with the wife I talk to her every day on the phone if one of us is at work).

    I never use the wave. I usually forget it's even there unless I pull it up accidentally or read about it here.

    Exactly why I use the wave bar all the time too!

    But the center button is practically useless to me.. it's either swipe up for launcher access/close. And that launcher shortcut has got to go.

    A dedicated voice memo button would be nice though.

    Waitaminit, useless center button + missing voice memo button. Hmm... HMMMM!

    didn't use the wave till i started to hide quick launch bar.

    have never used the bluetooth, but glad it has that function.

    have only used mobile hotspot (on pre+) a few times, and then only as novelty.

    I have never used the launcher button. Also, the center button got used once, when I first got my phone. I just tried it to see what it does. After that, it has never been used.

    Amazon MP3, launcher button, wave bar. I've never really seen a use for them. The center button is nice for the tactile feel I must admit.

    Amazon MP3 and some of the gestures mentioned above because I didn't know about them. I use the backswipe all the time tho. Off to check those gestures out now...

    the launcher button. I wish I could at least hide it or move it. That's valuable real estate it is taking up!
