    The home screen gives you all your latest information in one place. It’s what you see when you turn on the smartphone or touch Home from a menu.

    Change the wallpaper
    Change your wallpaper whenever you like. You can select from Live (animated) wallpapers, standard wallpapers, or pictures from your Gallery.

    1. Touch and hold any blank space on your Home screen
    2. Select the desired option (Gallery, Live Wallpapers, Wallpapers)
    3. Browse through the choices, touch the picture to use, and then touch Set wallpaper

    Add an item to the Home screen
    You can add the following types of items to the Home screen.

    Add any of a variety of preloaded miniature applications (widgets) to your Home screen. You can also download widgets from Google Play.

    1. Touch Apps
    2. Touch Widgets at the top of the screen
    3. Select a widget, then touch and hold it until it vibrates. The home screen layout will appear and when the widget is released it will show on the home screen
    Note: Following a software update, you may need to reinstall certain Widgets.

    Add a folder to organize Home screen items, or folders that contain all your contacts, contacts with phone numbers, or starred contacts. Your folders’ contents are kept up to date automatically. To create a folder, touch and hold an app icon until you feel a vibration. Then drag that app icon onto another one. Repeat with any other app icons you want to place in the same folder. To name that folder, touch the icon grouping, then touch Unnamed Folder. Type in the name of the folder then touch Done.
