    The home button does absolutely nothing for me. Doesn't matter if I short press or long press it, it doesn't do a thing. It's getting very frustrating having to manually back out of all my apps. Any suggestions?

    Do you have a different launcher? I dont have ICS yet....but I tested out some launchers on GB recently and my home button got screwed up one time. If your home button isnt working...something's definitely wrong.

    This was there on Blur with GB...and was of my fav things about the Blur GB update starting with the Droid X1. Nice to see Moto kept it. Nice thread yall got going on here.

    Can't say enough about the ICS update on the Bionic or some of these shortcuts/tricks. Keep 'em coming!

    Open the native browser and go to the bookmarks page. Long press the bookmark you want to set a shortcut for. Select add shortcut to home. Or, select edit bookmark, and tap the field next "add to"(it'll say bookmarks). Select homescreen and click OK.

    HA!! Thanks for that. I had the native browser frozen in Titanium Backup because I use the Dolphin Browser. I defrosted it, and had bookmarks again. However, I use "Desktop Visualizer" for creating custom shortcuts on home screens. I created a shortcut, with the Dolphin icon, and selected that bookmark from the native browser. Then when I tapped to open, it gave me the option of completing the action using the native browser or Dolphin browser, and I tapped 'remember this choice" so now it does it in the Dolphin browser that I like so much better. Awesome! Thank you! :hail:

    If anyone has any tips and tricks for clearing out the frequently called list please let me know. I had an app that worked in GB but now for some reason they don't want us to be able to clear out the frequently called. :blink:

    It is possible to take a screenshot of the home screen. I've taken a screenshot of each of my screens, the home screen has my Favorite Contacts list at the top:

    I looked all through there ... I have no option to "clear" ... 4.0.4 ICS right?

    Under my "Favorites" is my Frequently Contacted, if I tap options it gives me "Import/Export", "Accounts", "Share Contacts", and "Backup Assistant + Contacts" but no "Clear" option. :blink:

    Yeah ics, just released. In the dialer, tap on recent, then rap options, the bottom left key on the phone, it gives me the clear option
