  1. Those weren't tips or tricks, that was normal things that the phone will an is supposed to do, no trick lol.. how about a tip to get my stock browser to stop freezing, or to stay default home page. Or to get a flash for it also. The stock browser sucks worse than any other phone I've ever had, an that's sad. Cuz this phone cost me $760. Not happy !

    1. I would recommend you to install UC browser HD for android. This is the best browser so far for android. It is fast and lightweight and comes with pre installed flash player.
