    Change default program

    Dear All

    I have a Galaxy S2 and the question is regarding that:
    Some apps use default programs, whether to brows the net, calendar or any other functionality which the app need from the phone.
    How do you change these defaults?
    I have been searching everywhere in the phone and the net but cannot find any answer to that.
    Any help will be appreciated.

    Thank you in advance

    Amots

    To change a default you have to first clear a default if one exists. For example, email. To clear its default you navigate to Settings, Applications, All. Scroll down to the email app that opens by default and select it. Then select Clear Defaults. The next time you will be prompted to select an application to launch as a default. Check mark the little box next to Set As Default at the bottom and then select your preferred app.

    Good grief THANK YOU for that direction! I too have looked extensively on the device (SSGS24GT) and some on web search for the answer! Spent about 20 minutes on chat with Samsung tech support who bless his heart, was clueless...finally told me I had to factory reset (of course), or, call Sprint...incredible. I know the phone really pretty good but I honestly don't think I would have resolved this without your help...thanks again Ollie, and thanks too to Amots for posting the question!

    You are more than welcome! Reps deal with so many different phones that they really can't nail down everything on them. I poke it with a stick or Google for answers
