    Welcome to the forums. For first step I would format your sd card. Go to settings --->sd storage--->unmount sd care--->reformat.

    After that I would setup all your widgets. Delete the ones off of the homescreens you are not going to use for they will take up battery life and processor power if you leave them there and have no interest in using them.

    Then arrange your homescreens and widgets. Then I would open up marketplace and create an account then download some apps.

    Look in the forums here for top 10 apps.

    I have 9 lockerz invites if interested PM me.

    First thing I would do is play with the battery setting to your liking. The battery will deplete quickly in it's current factory form.. I set mine to Battery Saver and dimmed the screen quite a bit, but you might find a nice balance in between. Also eliminate various Google Sync options if you don't use Gmail's calendar or contacts, etc.

    For the first week or so, you will be at war with your battery life. Tips here can really help you succeed.

    Theres an edit button in the bottom right corner of your posts, so theres no need to double post.

    In regards to the first question, you need a home replacement app like panda home,open home, or dxtop.

    Certain apps can not be removed from the phone at this stage. Not sure if gmail is one, but theres a few options. If its a dowloaded app, go to the market, and click my downloads. Theres also an option under settings->applications. You might have to go a bit deeper but its some where in there. Also certain apps like Advanced Task Killer will have an uninstaller feature.
