    Out of the blue, some of my icons disappeared. Then the remaining one got this gear picture on it. =T

    What is going on? lol

    The blue gear means that the phone is attempting to find the icon(usually when loading), but if it stays that way for more than 10 seconds it means the app isn't found. Did you recently switch an SD card or anything?

    its an issue with apps/games that are downloaded and put on the media portion (12 gigs). usually apps and games that are downloaded are saved to the phone portion (2gigs). what i was doing was downloading apps/games and after they were installed i was moving them to the media section. apparently some games/apps are incompatible with this method even though its technically the same 16gigs of memory just partitioned differently.

    I dont know but maybe this issue is fixed in the soon to come OTA. but its still gonna be hard to fill up that 2 gigs. Even if a game is 200mb, it usually downloads and installs the main core of the game (take 20mb for this example) and saves it on the phone portion while the other 180mb are defult saved to the media portion or to your external SD

    You're correct, Ghost.

    I was seeing that with Dolphin Browser HD and did an experimental "move to phone." That cured it. ;)
