    i guess this is an android thing, not a galaxy thing, but hopefully there's an app or something to help

    1) when i am making a call to a company and am given extensions to dial (press 1 for ..., press 2 for ...) it bugs me that the screen went blank and the keypad is hidden. makes me miss having a real keypad. is there something in the market or some setting to make this less annoying?

    *2) how to 'send contact' like vcard or something. and can it be done mid-call. today, i had to end the call, look through my contacts, try to keep the contact in my head as i switched back to send an SMS and type the number in manually.

    3) and one probably stupid question... when i am listening to music, for example, and i need to switch over to make a call or turn on wifi or something, there is just a pause button. does this mean that the player is still running in the background? can i multitask and run 2 apps at the same time and switch back and forth? (ie search the internet and listen to music)

    *Just found something called contact sender that is not bad. does what is says. only sends as text though, no vcard option. too bad it isn't integrated into the menu. but at least it's something.

    when running an app (music player or browser) and pressing the menu button - the app keeps running in the background.
    a music player will keep playing, and the browser will still be on the page you left it on. when you reenter each one of them they'll in the same state you left them.
