1. I can't seem to adjust my volume unless I'm in an app. Is that normal? It was not with my old phone and I'm pretty sure I was able to do it with this phone before today. I'd like to be able to just turn the volume down before going into a place where I don't want my phone to make noise without opening an app first. 2. apps freezing. Today the next browser froze and I had to turn the phone off and on to make it unfreeze. Also farm heroes froze and i had to force stop it to make it unfreeze (luckily I was losing anyway). my phone is rooted but has the stock rom. eta: by "turn off the phone" I just meant push the button on the side off and then on. I didn't have to reboot or anything. Still annoying.
