    Is there an app that allows you to take a screenshot so I can post what the phone is displaying?

    Search for a thread called "post your UI's" or something like that. They were all posting screenshots of their 7 screens, and I believe someone listed instructions on how to to do it.

    edit: here's the instructions:

    To take a screen shot:

    -Download the SDK from here: Android SDK | Android Developers
    -Once SDK is downloaded, run "SDKSetup.exe" and install platform 2.1 and
    the drivers if necessary. If you've already downloaded HTC Sync, you
    should have the drivers
    -Enable USB debugging on your phone:
    menu>settings>applications>development>check USB debugging
    -Open the command line (Windows key+R...type cmd...push enter)
    -Type "cd *the path to the tools directory of the sdk*" for example:
    cd C:\Users\Dylan\android-sdk_r05-windows\android-sdk-window\tools
    -Push enter and you'll see ......tools> type ddms.bat and push enter
    -In the new window that opens you should see your device listed. Select it
    and then click device>screen capture
    You now have a pic of your screen.

    Yes there are.. but requires Root. Will have to wait till the phone is rooted to get this functionality.
