    Please for the love of God, is there any possible way I can revert to the previous version before this *insert fowl language here* marshmallow update?? This is the worst, most frustrating update I have ever had. All the helpful widgets I had on my screens are gone with no ability to get them back (making the ones I specifically paid for useless - can't even describe how angry this makes me since I bought them specifically for the widget), a useless contact page that is unsightly and font so large your think I was legally blind (i've changed it countless times but there are some things that won't even let me change it and it's seemingly stuck at what would appear to be size 70). There are countless other problems, I could go on all night

    I've tried for the last week to get used to it, That's usually when I say, ok, this isn't too bad, but not this update. I absolutely hate it. Its awful. I'm literally considering a new phone because of how AWFUL this update is.

    so please, tell me I can go back to the previous version or I'm going to throw this phone out the window.

    Thanks in advaced,
    Jay

    Yes, but not easily. It will require using your computer.

    I just had a crazy thought...you didn't somehow get on EasyHome and/or enable some accessibility stuff by any chance?

    My SOs phone just updated and everything looks normal, plenty of screens, nothing broken.

    This is what I'm seeing now after the update. I can't add widgets or replace the accuweather/click widget that is there (i had one that I paid for, so I'm not impressed that I can no longer use it - wasted money is never ok).

    And lastly, this is what it used to look like. It had a menu on the bottom that you could customize, and could fit quite a few icons. Now you can only for 4 across and 3 down because of that stupid weather/clock app. This is what I want back

    It really looks like you're in Easy Home. That's not what my phone looks like. Go into the apps section of the settings and clear your app defaults and reboot. Make sure you select Home, not Easy Home when it asks.
