    Whenever I launch the internet, it always starts at the last page I was on, and not my home page (google). Does anyone know how to stop this from happening?

    For that matter, does anyone know how to get back to your home page without typing it manually ?

    It will open on the last open page.


    To go home,

    Menu > Settings or More > Home

    The stock browser will always open to the last page you've been to if it's still running (aka, if its task has not been killed or phone restarted).

    Other alternative browsers will give you the option, however.

    If you back all the way out after your done browsing it will then bring up your home page.

    Thanks. That's an option, but kind of annoying, especially if you've been surfing for a while. I'll check out alternative browsers.

    Answers to how already posted. Why? Because simply backing out of the program isn't closing it. That's the downside of multitasking, but it's really the same as if you simply minimized a window on your PC. When you go back to that window it picks up where you were. I always tell people that unless you fully stop programs (and many force you to do that via Running Services Force Stop), you're really only minimizing windows on this phone, not closing them.

    a somewhat faster way to close it, ESPECIALLY if you've been surfing a while, is to go to menu > windows, then close out that window, then hit the last button twice and it will back out of the app.. works well for me

    tho i cant seem to get that dumb vision.sprintpcs.com page to go away.. i set google as my home but when i load the app the vision.sprint page loads everytime, i would have to specifically hit menu > more> home.. which to me defeats the purpose.. not a huge hassle, but still..
