    Hi,
    I have an sgs2 with android 2.3.5 - i think i started to notice this issue after i upgraded to 2.3.5 - mostly because i think jumping from 2.3.3 to 2.3.5 the way in which the 'applications' screens work now is different - they are similar to the main home screens.
    Anyway the issue I have is, when you click the 'applications' icon and are taken to the list of all your applications, in the 'grid view' setting if i arrange my applications in a particular order or i move the various screens/windows around - i have about 5 of them - i find that on rebooting or restarting the phone that this setting gets reset i.e the order in which i placed my applications is lost. I think i notice this also if i mount and unount a sd card too. Has anyone experienced this?
    Thanks

    ok turns out this probably has nothing to do with my upgrade to 2.3.5. i just realised i had some applications installed on my sd card - when i move this back to the phone and then go through the process of mounting and unmounting the sd card - i find that the arrangement of my applications is unchanged - which means the issue was with having some apps installed on the sd card - other than moving these apps back to the phone memory is there some way around this?
