    I have a folder called Media that has my video apps, music apps, etc in there. I am wondering if it has something to do with the Qik app I have but sometimes if I am using Qik then go back to my main screen and then a little while later try to open my Media folder again, it will not open. My other folders will open. I usually have to do a hard reset of the phone (power off/on) then I have access to folder again. I am not 100% sure that the Qik app is causing my folder to freeze up or not.

    Just curious if anyone else has noticed folders freezing up and not opening when you tap them.

    it has also happened to me...had to do a hard reset everytime...but it seems to happen if you press your home button while the folder is still open...make sure to close the folder before hitting your home button...it might help.

    Is there anyway to get the folder to close when pressing the Home button? That annoys the hell out of me

    You can press the back button to close it.

    That's a little better but is there anyway to get it to close when pressing the home button? if I press the home button I want to go to the home screen, not a folder on the home sceen.

    Thanks
