    This from the manual.

    Using the smart scroll feature
    Set the device to scroll the screen up or down by tilting your head or the device. You can use
    this feature while viewing emails or webpages.
    On the Apps screen, tap Settings → Accessibility → Dexterity and interaction → Smart
    scroll, and then drag the Smart scroll switch to the right.
    Use the following options:
    • Tilting head: Set the device to scroll the screen up or down when you tilt your head
    upwards or downwards.
    • Tilting device: Set the device to scroll the screen up or down when you tilt the device
    forwards or backwards.
    • Speed: Adjust the speed for scrolling the screen.
    • Visual feedback display: Set the device to display a visual feedback icon when the device
    recognises your action.

    I see what u are saying...you mean continuous scroll of your home screens so it doesn't stop automatically at the last one
    I use Nova Launcher which has the option to do so, just go into Nova settings and enable the option

    I think he really means being able to scroll a page of text from Left to Right so he can read the whole sentence/paragraph.

    Depends on which carrier you have.
    It is not available on the Verizon models.

    Did you get in here late?

    I just posted how to a few posts back.

    This from the manual.

    Using the smart scroll feature
    Set the device to scroll the screen up or down by tilting your head or the device. You can use
    this feature while viewing emails or webpages.
    On the Apps screen, tap Settings → Accessibility → Dexterity and interaction → Smart
    scroll, and then drag the Smart scroll switch to the right.
    Use the following options:
    • Tilting head: Set the device to scroll the screen up or down when you tilt your head
    upwards or downwards.
    • Tilting device: Set the device to scroll the screen up or down when you tilt the device
    forwards or backwards.
    • Speed: Adjust the speed for scrolling the screen.
    • Visual feedback display: Set the device to display a visual feedback icon when the device
    recognises your action.

    AZgl1500, I'm wondering how you have scroll turned OFF if you're on Verizon. Like you pointed out, Verizon doesn't offer this feature.

    I want "scroll" from left -> right and come back around to my 1st page. I have 9pages or screens that have apps on them that I use some that I use are on page7 and some are on the 1st page and I would like to get to a page just scrolling forward not backwards.

    If you delete my magazine you can scroll through all of your screens and come back to the homescreen..

    Alternatively you can use the fast scroll feature where you see the little home button with the other (squares- which represnt the other screens) to scroll quickly through the screens.

    Don't think that is going to happen.

    I have my Home Screen setup as #1 far left.

    A single touch of the HOme Screen button puts the phone back to #1 screen again, almost as good as what you are talking about.

    Perhaps you need a launcher like smart launcher pro. On the left of the screen are tabs for the various pages with the app icons on them. You just hit the tab for the page you want you don't have to scroll through other pages to get to it and back again. Here is a screenshot of mine.

    This is exactly right. If you don't use that stupid My Magazine app you can remove it or disable it then all your home screens will scroll around. I have my set ot only have 3 screens with my main home screen being in the center position. You can scroll all the way around in either direction to get back to your main home screen.

    That's the way mine is setup and it doesn't work like that. Am I missing something?

    Mine is the Verizon version and I have 4 screens.

    It's not a huge deal, but after 2 years with Sense it's kind of annoying.

    I dont use smart scroll to be honest, so I cant really help you with this. Perhaps look for a tutorial on youtube. That might help you to understand it better. If it still doesnt work then take it back where you bought it and have them take a look.

    If you want the home screen to be infinite, long press on a blank space, hit settings and enable infinite scrolling on the stock launcher with sprint

    I have an AT&T model and I also disabled My Magazine and just tested right now. If I scroll past my last home screen it loops back to the first home screen page. So it's working as you want on my phone.
