    Soo... I had a L1020 and loved it, but for some reason the phone wanted to go for a swim with out me. (sigh.. Long story) anyway, because my contract renews in November I was not going to spend 2 hundred or more on a new phone. Even with insurance on my plan. So I went out and got a nice little 60 dollar back up L520 I love that the amount of options for Windows OS. I have turned this little phone into a mean machine. I have updated it to 8.1 and love it. But here is the problem. My explorer will only load about a page and a half before it decides to crash and close. It started doing this when viewing tumble.now it has progressed to any page that has alot to view. I was viewing some page on smart watches and could not read past half the page. Just a little aggravating. But is this dew to the lack of ram or am I doing something wrong. please someone let me know. Thanks!

    As is the first stop in our troubleshooting toolkit, try a soft reset by pressing and holding the power and volume down button until the phone vibrates.

    You also might want to check in the IE settings, look for a button to clear cache among other settings.

    Slightly offtopic, but I never understand this, and now I just have to ask: Why a softreset would fix this? I mean... soft reset isn't the same thing as turning the phone off and then back on? Or turning the phone off is kinda like a hibernate mode, not a real "reset"?

    I could be wrong, but I believe a soft reset cleans out and dumps additional system things a normal restart doesn't bother with.
    Agh, resets have changed slightly since my Palm OS days

    I'm having explorer issues with this phone too.

    Not a big issue, but it happens when about like 5 or 6 photos are loaded, it will turn black and say "Resuming" and nothing will happen.

    I did the soft reset and cleared all three temp file places I still have the problem at this point I think it is because of the lack of hardware I even have a 16gig SD card to add but thanks for the help everyone
