  1. Not sure how old this information is, but it’s old enough that it nedds to be removed. I don’t recall ever having a phone w/”intetnet” as an option in “Mng Apps”. I’m sure, at some point in history, there was. Also, clearing defaults, on all other apps, makes no difference. FB videos open from w/in FB. It doesn’t matter whether using the app or the stock browser, vids do not give any options as to which app to use to play them. Again, this set of directions does not work. It would be best to remove the post/article so people don’t see it & waist time going to it & viewing info that is of no use anymore.
