    What does pressing the power and volume down buttons together do? I tried it and the phone's screen just turned off, then I hit the power button again and it turned right back on. I thought this button combo was to reboot the phone...

    Push and hold them for 10 seconds, it'll force a reboot.

    Minor point, doesn't it force a shutdown, not a reboot (works like pressing the powerbutton on you're computer).

    It'll automatically reboot (instead of staying off). :)

    When the phone is off hit volume up + volume down + power until the menu comes up.

    These button send you to the factory options. Here you can install a android update(which you need to download from the internet.), reboot your phone, wipe the data you have, or have the factory settings. You may need to look online for a file download that will have the android update within the file. You will have to complete some tasks(which you can find on YouTube.) in order to install it. But you will need the factory options to do so.
