    I understand what you wanted but it's the same thing. Wouldn't you rather know it's there then think it's nowhere to be found. Just trying to help.

    Some issues I have. Please folks help me.

    Issue 1: Suddenly goggle latitude icon is missing from my app screen. Where did it go? How to get it back?

    Issue 2: All the programs i download brings an icon both on the app screen and home screen, after i changed something. I don't want this happening.
    How do i make it not automatically show up on the home screen?

    Issue 3: Can't I view web pages with flash video? Its says not supported. Any work around options?

    Issue 4: How do I turn of the music player? exiting screen still puts an icon on the top

    Issue 5: Which is the best protective case- I like the Flip wallet stand type and Seidio surface with kickstand

    Issue 6: How do I change icon images?

    Issue 7: How do I password protect folders?

    Issue 8: Ho do I make the app download request for my password before it downloads any new software. (Like in Iphone)

    Issue 9: See a faint red glow from the indicator light. What does that mean? Battery low ?

    Thanks.
    Please quote and answer.

    For number 2, if you're talking about apps you downloaded from the play store, go into the play store's settings & uncheck the "auto add widgets" box. This will stop this behavior.

    Quick question guys, is there a way to set desktop view as default in either the stock browser or Chrome? I know you can select desktop view in the settings menu when you're on a webpage but can you select it as default anywhere so you don't have to do it everytime? I can't find the option to do that anywhere.

    I don't think there is. I've been searching for that option as well. I don't mind clicking the toggle for each new website (it seems to remember the option to go to desktop site, if it's one that you visit often), but this is one thing that I actually loved about Dolphin browser before. I think that's the only thing that I really like Dolphin over chrome for.

    Hi, can anyone here help me...my dh and I just got our phones, but for some reason, we set up our phones with our wifi at home and it kicks off and won't stay on! I am doing this in settings, adding our security code etc...the phone acknowledges it, but when we toggle to the on position, (in settings) it lasts about 10 seconds and shuts off...so frustrating!!! ATT local doesn't seem to know what to tell us... anyone??? Thanks!!!

    Settings>Wi-fi>Menu>Advanced>Keep Wi-Fi on during sleep>Change to Always

    I don't know if this will necessarily help though. Did you try re-setting your router (just pull power and leave disconnected for 30 seconds and plug back in)?

    Just a guess here, but it looks like you keyed in the wrong password.

    I came across a great tip last night while watching the Rearth Case Video by contributing writer Chris Chavez that was so obviously cool and subtle that I thought to myself.....dang.....why didn't I think of that.


    At 3:46 mark he takes the back cover off his phone and uses the case as the cover instead. This is great for those who often switch out batteries and worry about damaging the battery cover. I'm using Samsung's OEM Hardshell whose back has the exact feel as the cover and fits snug enough that I can use it without the battery door attached.

    Thanks GamerCore

    If you're still having this problem, try enabling mac address filtering on your router. You will have to google the model # of the router and "mac address filter" and should be able to find a tutorial, turn it on, then add the mac addresses of the phones to the "allowed" list. In the past, this has worked every time when I've had devices unable to stay connected. Note, you will have to also add the mac address from any other wireless device in order for them to continue to connect as well.
