Sprint Pocket PC - 6900 - Touch

My current Windows Mobile based SUPERPhone.  Recently, I installed much of the HTC Touch theme (along with files I modified - of course) and have come up with a great looking phone with minimal memory issues.  This involved dumping some of my favorite programs including phoneAlarm and WisbarAdvance due to the amount of memory they eat up and the current instability of said programs on Windows Mobile Professional 6.

ScaryBear Software Spacer 1.0 - Currently iLauncher does not have the capability to place icons anywhere you wish on the screen, nor does it allow you to add space.  So, in order to space out the today screen, I use this to add some padding to the top between iLauncher and the Taskbar.  Free.

NYX Software NyxClock - The alarm clock on the PPC is aweful.  Can someone explain to me why it doesn't turn the volume on if the PPC is in mute mode?  Anyway, this application is a great replacement that is very easy to use even if it's a little bit ugly!  And it controls the system volume so you never have to worry, is my phone muted, will I be woken up?  Free.

Pseudo iPhone

Almost immediately after Apple announced the iPhone, Pocket PC owners discovered that they could (though the help of many of the programs above) make their Pocket PC Phone look and function just like an iPhone.  Anyway, here's my "today screen" and the programs that make it up.

Screenshot Soon...
