    Now we can see that the phone has been unlocked and we can see the home screen.
    At the bottom, we can see icons. It is in this section that we need to focus now, because we need to open up the applications folder. To do that, we need the icon located at the bottom of the home screen in the middle. It looks like a grid made up of white dots. Press down on this icon and it will open up our applications folder.
