How do you get to your home page? theres no longer and option to go to it on this phone.... i found where i can set it and i did but why cant i get to it? used to be able to go to >menu >more >home and go to my homepage...... On the GS2 there is no option. I also am having issues finding the options to hide folders or files like i could on my Mytouch 4g, used to have the option to hide or show certain folders.....

There are apps out there, but hidden files just have a full stop "." in front of the file name. So go to Applications>Files> hit the bottom menu button, click "Create Folder" then give your folder a name starting with a full stop, such as ".stuff_I_dont_want_people_to_see_too_easily" then click "OK" you won't see the file in the menu. To show the hidden files , from Files, click bottom menu button>More>Settings then click the "show hidden hidden files. You will now see the folder you created along with the other hidden files. Dump what you want in the hidden file, then un-check "show hidden files".

You can change your homepage in browser settings SET HOMEPAGE

Save it as a bookmark. Go back to home. Then press menu key then ADD>SHORTCUTS. Add the bookmark as an icon to your desktop.

Hey, I have been using Mieren browser the last few days and it is much better. You have the option to save websites right to your homescreen.

Used to be in market but it's not there anymore. Here is a link to my dropbox :
