After many weeks of playing with this phone, I still can't figure out any way to re-arrange or remove the bottom row of widget/shortcuts (phone, email, web, and application.) I'd just like them in a different order... (maybe removing the web one for Skyfire...)

A friend of mine got this phone and said he was able to get his Exchange account to work with it.
The problem is when he adds anything to his calendar from the phone it doesnt sync back to his exchange mailbox. However, if he does it from his Outlook it does sync to the phone.
Is there a setting in there for that?
Thanks in advance.

Now, my issues are these... WTF did Samsung do to Android??? The only thing I can think of to describe it is neutering. Most of what I consider stock widgets, like analog clock, are absent. Even after replacing the Touch Wiz UI, they do not reappear.
Also, you can only check for software updates once in a 24 hour period. Kinda puzzled by this one.
Having the power key on the side takes getting use to.

What is rooting and how to do it?

Rooting is easy, very easy even by Android standards. Then download Titanium backup and remove the bloat. And if you want, download the sql editor and change a file to allow off market apps. (sideloading).
As far as filtered AT&T apps on the market, two ways of dealing with this, both simple. 1. put the phone in airplane mode, then turn wifi on. You can get at any app in the marketplace. This is what I do. 2. Download marketenabler, pick TMO USA, the market will think you're on TMO and not AT&T, both are good. I use 1.
How can I get these services to stop starting up in the background?
& Background data. This will also increase batt life to 10-11 hrs., with normal use.
