    Ok. So I bought a Nexus. My phone froze on my 2x today and I can't have that. I have to have something rock solid reliable.

    After the cardiac arrest period was over, I have started playing with / setting up the phone.

    ICS isn't that bad as far as differences in the big picture, but lots of little things are different...

    Q1: Where do I turn off 4G? Can't figure that out anywhere....

    I will say that the Invisible Shield that BestBuy sells is the best screen protector I have ever seen

    Q5: Can I make folders in the app "drawer" (or whatever that's called)
    Q5a: It used to be, on my Fascinate, that I could press and hold on a gear looking icon in the upper corner and move icons around in the app drawer to get like icons next to each other. How do I do that in ICS?

    Q6: If I hit phone, there are 4 contacts that come in there as presumably Favorites or Most Dialed. How do I change them or add more faves?

    It looks like you maybe can't? Everything is alphabetized and that's it?

    Q7: Does ICS need a app/memory manager? Yes I know, Android supposedly does such a wonderful job of this, but on my Fascinate, my performance improved markedly when I had an app that killed all the stupid crap that ran automatically in the background, even if it supposedly wasn't using RAM resources. Why does American Airlines, Continental, Skype, and State Farm need to run 100% of the time anyhow....

    Q9: Do any of the ICE apps work well with ICS? I previously purchased ICE by Appentive and it works fine as an app, although it ALWAYS screwed up the integration with the lock screen. Is there a better app for this? What are people using?

    If that is the Zagg product then I agree. Been using their products since my Treo days....

    Nope, but appreciate the link. I figured out how to do folders on the screens pretty quick. Exact same function as in iPad. But haven't seen any link that says you can do it inside the app drawer.
