Home Screen

So many options, what will you choose? When it comes to your Home screen, customization is the name of the game. You can change it up by switching the layout, resizing the grid, and you can even bring back the old All Apps button. So, you get to do you.

Note: Screens and settings available may vary depending on your Canadian wireless service provider and your software version.
