    Cool, I knew this before but good tutorial video, many people out there may have this phone and still don't know about it. Now if only it could do screen recording stock...

    Every time I push the power and home button it either turns my screen off or pulls up the task manager...what am I doing wrong?

    You may be holding them too long and not at the same time.

    Try tapping them simultaneously and immediately releasing and see if that works.

    You have push them at the same time. It always works for me.

    It can be tricky but with enough practice it does work. Just have to hit "both" at the same time. I know it takes me several tries sometimes.

    Yep, it does work. Takes a couple tries the first time. It's a lot quicker than you'd expect. For those having problems, the key is to quickly tap and release the power and home buttons simultaneously. It doesn't work if you hold down one and hit the other. When you see the screen flash, you know it worked.

    you do not have to push them at the same time just reasonable close (if you have too large a delay task manager will pop up) and hit home FIRST to avoid it turning off on you.

    you don't have to hold either release them immediately and it takes the screenie.
