ok, so i have a few questions here. i've been using this phone for a few weeks now, and decided to ask all questions at once. thought it would be easier than making many posts as things came up. 1) is there any reason that it takes time for the orientation to switch when i turn the phone? what can i do to improve that? 2) i came from a blackberry so used to closing things. from what i take all i have to do is hit the back arrow or home button and i'm good. is this true? correct me if i'm wrong as i understand that this phone is made to run multiple apps at once. 3) what is a good shopping list app? i used upvise on my bb as i could edit online. i like that option, but i know there has to be something better out there. what do you recommend? 4)from what i have read, having a task killer can go either way. well is that something i should look into or just let the phone be? as i don't have really any issues other than the orientation lagging. the phone runs great otherwise and i don't feel that it would be needed for how the phone works and is designed. the only complaint is the battery life, but i see i'm not the only one. 5) what apps does everyone recommend for tasks or notepads? i see that there is the google tasks, but is there an easier way to access it? like an app? i use the notepads for keeping track of things like what simpsons season i have for example. 6) has anyone figured out how to delete those apps that came pre-loaded from sprint that we don't use? like the nascar app and things like that. would be nice to get rid of those. 7)what is the difference between google contact and a phone contact? 8) how do i back up my phone (contacts and what not)? 9) almost forgot, what app is good for local searches? i used to use dex knows on the bb. or is google great enough? thanx for taking the time to read what i'm sure has been asked many times but i didn't find. and i appreciate helping a newbie out with your response.
