    Go to settings; you will see motions and gesture icon. There you enable air gestures

    One important thing worth mentioning: air browse only worked for me for the standard internet app. It did not work in chrome.

    i can't speak for air gestures, but i do have air wake up turned on. i noticed it's very picky about gestures, and won't work in bright sunlight, even if it's indirect sunlight. it usually won't work either when i'm holding the phone, the phone has to be placed on a surface or held very steady.

    i think the built-in air gestures is mostly gimmicky, but there are apps that seem to work well with it, especially air control that can forward/rewind music tracks based on gestures.

    I haven't had any issues with mine as of yet. But as stated above I believe it only works with the standard Internet app. Not all apps support it.

    I think verizon only includes chrome browser. I can't speak for other carriers.
