Turn off Touch and only use Standard Windows Mobile?

I have the touch pro the keyboards nice, but I hate the home screen as I only see one calender item at a time. Is their away to disable Touch and just use it as a normal windows mobile phone?

Kind of like Vista, but you can put it back into Classic, which I am using right now

Re: Turn off Touch and only use Standard Windows Mobile?

go into Settings - today and turn off touchflo and turn back on calender messaging and so on. I did the same and have also cooked a ROM meant for Resco and SPB shell.

2 more questions. Why can I only edit one button? Where is the Start button.

Also where is the instant messaging option for the today screen?

Re: Turn off Touch and only use Standard Windows Mobile?

ok so I guess the text is integrated with the messaging unlike 800w, its cool, but is it possible to make the 3 following changed

HOME button - Start Menu
BACK button - OK
and lastly the font for the soft click item menus regular sized. Ie pushing "menu" in contact you get jumbo sized words.

Re: Turn off Touch and only use Standard Windows Mobile?

Maybe you should just try Manila Control, to get the best of both worlds (TouchFlo3d and WM Classic). I'm using it with my phone, and I can easily switch between the two very quickly. I use TouchFlo3d in normal use, and when I want to see my appointments and tasks I just switch to WM Classic using a softkey (though you can bind it to whatever you want).
