  1. So I added a web page to my home screen to read later but it was full. I cleared some icons off and went to save the page again but it wouldn't let me. I'm guessing because I already saved it but where did it go?

    1. Hi Mickey S,
      Thanks for coming.
      To see all of saved pages, while you're in the Internet app, tap the Bookmark icon located at the top right corner of the screen and then tap the "Saved pages" tab to see all of pages you have saved before.
