    You ask a question with anger involved so that it's an obvious trap. Even if someone could help you through the issue, your response would be full of venom towards the OS and saying how terrible it is. ICS must not be all that bad if you had forgotten until just now how bad you hated it. Time to reconsider your distaste? Maybe if you calm down and brush aside your tendency to immediately get pissed, you might have a smoother experience as you learn how to use the features of ICS.
    I admit I am angry. Not at anyone in particular unless you had something to do with the design of ICS. There is no denying that you may be more tech savy than others including myself and there is no doubt whatsoever in my mind that the Gingerbread OS was far more user friendly than ICS. Obviously your experience differs from mine but there is no need to make it personal just because I don't agree with you.

    And it works the same as it does on the desktop full browser version of Gmail... open the email in the trash you want to recover, select the folder icon (or whatever you want to call it - lower left), select the folder you want it to go into (example: Inbox)... it's done... wow, rocket science.
    Welcome to the smarter than you club. When I particpate in other forums in areas that I have knowledge of, I always try to help and NEVER make comments that make me feel smarter than anyone else. I'm always glad to help.

    In Gmail, touch the Labels button (looks like a couple of tags). Select Trash, then find the email you want to move. Touch the Labels button again, tick the check box for that email, then select which Label (folder) you want to move it to, touch OK.
    B. Diddy I applaud you. I really do. The intention of your post was to lend assistance to someone who needed it which is exactly why forums really exist.

    Unfortunately it didn't help. I am using the Email app and not the Gmail version. But thanks again.

    If my comments were construed as being "smarter than you club" material, then I'm sorry... I guess the rocket science comment might have been a little much, but after a number of your smart a$$ comments you might have expected some. But if you are too afraid to touch some of the icons on the screen to see what they do. Spend more time getting to know your device.

    Thanks. I've touched them all. You are giving me advice using the Gmail app which is not what I am using

    I typically only use the Gmail app, but I fired up the Email app to see if I could help you. You're frustration is justified--there does not seem to be a simple way of moving an email that you've placed in the Trash back to the Inbox.

    From what I can tell, the best workaround is to find the email in the Trash, and Forward it back to yourself (select the email, tap the upper right corner for options, and forward the message back to yourself.

    Dude for real.....you have to be clear and give these crucial details if you want help. I've read a ton of threads on this site, and 99% of the people commenting here are amazingly helpful in all aspects of this site and the Android experience. People just get frustrated when you get smart with them, and then get offended when they are smart back. No one is saying they are smarter than you, they are simply frustrated that you want help, but so many of your posts are dripping with sarcasm. If you put forth the effort to include specific details instead of all the sarcasm and anger, you'd already have your issue solved.

    If you don't provide details then how can anyone help you. Never touched the email app so I wouldn't know. Download a different email app if it doesn't work.

    I almost forgot how much I HATE ICE CREAM SANDWICH until this morning..........

    Sooooo here's a complex problem (another shameless dig against ICS) I want to move an email from the Trash folder back into the Inbox folder.

    Would one of you ICS fan club members kindly enlighten me on how this is achieved and then please explain why someone needs to do a Google or Forum search to accomplish something so simple.
    Thank you very much,
    Stan
    Here's your answer.

    In Email, tap the top where it says Inbox. Then tap show all folders.Then tap Trash. Then select the email you want to move. Then tap the icon on the bottom (second from left) that looks like an envelope and a folder. Then select where you want to move it to. Hope this helps.

    Not super intuitive, so it took me a minute or two to figure it out. Not being smart or anything, I just hadn't done it until right now.

    I thought the envelope icon only toggled between "read" and "unread." When I was experimenting with it, I didn't get an option to move the email anywhere.

    Turtleman-Thanks for the input. Mine works as described by B. Diddy below and doesn't seem to have the ability to move from folder to folder.

    We're talking about the stock email app right?

    1) Click Inbox



    2) Click Show All Folders (it's showing trash because of recent access)



    3) Click Trash


    4) Select which email you want to move, then tap move icon



    5) Select folder to move to



    If that's not how it works for you, then that's just strange. Mine is all stock.

    Hmm. When I was testing out the stock Email app (I typically only use Gmail, but tried out stock Email to see if I could help), I did not see that folder icon to move mail from trash to the inbox.

    Oh, and why are you deleting that Publishers Clearinghouse email? YOU MAY HAVE ALREADY WON!!!

    Hey Turtleman thanks for taking the time to post the pictures and instructions. Unfortunately, like B.Diddy, I don't have that move folder icon. Strange

    I would love any advice on how to get optimal use of ICS. I am using the DROID Maxx and I know I can use it for more than texting and Fb. Anyone have ideas or a link to a tutorial or video or manual?
    Thanks.

    Sorry in advance if this is a repost...

    I'm not sure what I want to do. I just know I want to use it for everything. I know it isn't an Iphone 4s or 5, but I'd love to use it for everything.

    I have been trying to dictate documents, and I can't figure out how.

    My major problem with the phone is the camera. It doesn't take good pix, so, I downloaded Camera ICS, and even those pix don't focus well... So I'd like advice on cameras.

    Really, any info will be great.

    I think the camera is pretty good--here's a thread I started to show off pics taken with the Maxx: Pics taken with Maxx
    I find that the first picture I take after immediately starting up the camera can take a little bit longer to focus, but afterwards, focusing is very fast. You can tap on the screen to select an object or person to focus on before snapping the shot.

    I don't think it is horrible. It is just... Different. Evolving. Yeah that's the word. It is evolving with how people use it. Pushing us and itself to achieve better. I see nothing wrong with that. But to each his own. My thing is if you don't like change and innovation, there are other options besides Android...

    All, I have had both the Droid X and this last 6-10 months the Droid Razr Maxx. I do agree that before ICS this phone was awesome! I hope add some clarity here, its not ICS for the most part that's the problem. It is Moto's deployment of ICS on this device. Fill in your list of issues here ______________________. I have has two of these my original and a replacement Razr when the new one stopped giving haptic feedback. In short, the phone locks up, it has huge delays in moving from one app to the next. I have performed 3 factory resets. It does run better for a while after the reset, but this is short lived. I found a tip online for clearing the cache, this also improves the performance, however again it soon goes back to being sluggish. If you read around you will see as I have ,many owners of this model indicating issues, major issues. You will also read that Moto was going to come out with a 'fix' to address issues. It never came. As is normally the case, Moto is focused on the new phones and JB must not be a priority for them for the ancient 10 month old phones. I would say that every day is a struggle with this device. Looking forward to a way out. Fix, JB or iPhone?
