    I have v 3.x and have setup my icons and tabs the way I like it. If I upgrade to v 4.x, will it override what I have now or will it retain my existing settings?

    Does the touch scrolling work everywhere or just IE?

    It has different options that can enable on and off. It works on: PIE, File Explorer, POutlook, Programs & Settings, Search, and a couple of other Spb products.

    I have not tested it everywhere, but those are the options for Smart Scrolling.

    What do you mean took away your dial? If you mean the picture speed-dial, you can insert that into a tab. If you mean the part where if you start typing, and it will search your contacts, just start typing, and it will appear and act like normal, you can hide it manually, and it shows up when used.

    edit: Just noticed your Sprint, I am VZW....may be different, but I don't think so.

    Yep tried typing so I uninstalled, soft reset, re-installed, not working... Mentioned Sprint just in case that may play a role...

    Being Sprint may change things, that was the extent of my knowledge, I hope some of the other guys in here can figure it out for you!!!!

    it took away from my side button functions. The ones that control the volume. I un-installed and re-installed and have the same problem.

    Ok. my issue seems to have resolved itself. Dial from today screen now works. I installed a 3rd time and walla! I'm keepin a close eye on this one though.
    Side buttons work perfect to above poster.

    Yeh, I upgraded too and found that now my 700WX is now much slower.Im running several programs, but only have SPB Diary, Phonealarm, andLVM Time on my today screen. I setup 3 pages with a couple of plugins each. switching between today screen tabs was very slow. I reset and it and then it just locked up on the "booting SPB Pocket Plus"... line. Never got to my today screen. Re-booted several times, with the same result.Then I removed the battery, and after 3 re-boots removing the battery, it came up. I took the oportunity to remove version 4.0 immediately. After a final reboot, and loading the old 3.1 version once again, everyting is back to normal...no thanks; I can live with just one tab and no finger scrolling.

    I'm noticing the same thing - everything is a lot slower and the benefits aren't that great.

    It really slowed down my 700WX because it was installed on the storage card. I re-installed it on the main memory and my phone is as fast as usual. I had SPB mobile shell before, this is the first version of Pocket Plus that I've tried.

    Brainzblown: I found what appears to be a solution to this same problem with "fixvolume."

    there are links here to the file to download and install:

    the file at the spbclub link appears to have worked for me but the one on the treocentral thread did not, at least when I tried it, it wouldn't load.
