1. You want that $100.00 in your pocket or an Amazon Fire TV don't you? Well here's the deal. With our new updated look we are in desperate need of an updated logo. The 'old' one has certainly served us well, but it's time. Find all the details here: bit.ly/1q0k6Wa

    From time to time my browser will completely stop working. Wont load anything over 3g or wifi. Dolphin works fine so I know its not a service issue.

    I have to power cycle and then it works. Just had to do this 5 minutes ago. As far as I can tell there is no way to FC the browser but maybe someone knows something I don't. Surely I can't be the only one with this browser issue.

    From the Manage Apps tab in Settings there is a Force Stop button.
