    On every phone i have had for many years now, pushing any of the buttons whilst the phone's screen is off activates the screen briefly (usually just showing the clock or prompting for the screen unlock). This is both useful for ensuring the phone is switched on but is just as useful for ensuring the phone is switched off (night, meetings, flights, cinema etc).

    The only way of activating the screen to check the Legend's on/off status appears to be to push the power button. However, if the phone is off, this simply switches the phone on! This strikes me as being a completely daft design decision.

    So, is there any way of checking that a Legend is off without switching it on and then off again?

    (Yes, i know there are silent, flight safe, meeting and other modes...)

    Is it such a big deal to press the top button?? Like every new phone I've ever had, there all slightly different. Are we becoming to picky??

    So you suggest the best way to tell if the phone is off is to turn it on then turn it off?

    Well if it was on anyway then it would be of little consequence...

    But then again, I also can remember when I've turned it off.
