Cricket Samsung Messager phone tip | Faster web browser scrolling
The first Samsung Messager Cricket phone tip is about faster web browser scrolling. One of the things that influenced me to go with a Cricket wireless mobile phone was the unlimited mobile web browsing. Some of the other prepaid wireless carriers charge big time for web browsing so being able to jump on the Internet at anytime for as long as I want made Cricket Wireless an easy choice.
Initially, I went with the Samsung Messager R450 slider phone because of the full QWERTY keyboard that was supposed to make web browsing a breeze. In all honesty, using the Samsung Messager's web browser is not bad at all, especially for being a WAP browser, with the exception of how the phone scrolls through web pages and emails.
You have to press the scroll button 110 times to reach the bottom of a Google search results page on your Samsung Messager phone!
Most of you already know that the scroll button on the slider phone by Samsung only allows you to scroll up or down one line at a time for every press of the button. The first time I browsed the web on my Samsung Messager phone it only took about 15 minutes for my fingers to start getting sore.
Any Samsung Messager r450 owner that has visited a few websites on their phone can tell you just how much work is required to scroll up and down web pages. For example, let's say that you decide to do 3 searches on any one of the major search engines using the Samsung Messager's mobile web browser. If you scroll to the bottom of only the first page of each search result you still would have had to press the scroll key 300+ times!
Scrolling faster on the Samsung Messager phone web browser
Here's what you have to do when you want to scroll through web pages super fast on your Cricket Samsung Messager r450. Start by connecting your phone to the mobile web and once you are connected, pull up the almighty Google and perform a quick search. When I said you have to press the navigation button 100+ times to reach the bottom of a search results page, I meant it.
There are two sets of buttons on the Samsung Messager that are used to control web page navigation while using the web browser. What many people are not aware of is that you can use both sets of your phone's navigation buttons in unison to scroll up or down through web pages much faster than when only 1 button was being used.
Below is a picture of a Samsung Messager R450 with the slider open so you can see what I'm saying. Notice the 2 red dots with numbers on them. The red dots are where I place my thumbs when navigating and I need to scroll really fast.
