    I've had this phone since release day, and I've never had the need to press this button. I wish it was the power button instead so much because right now it's just taking up physical space for no reason.

    I hit it on accident, which is annoying. I wish it just weren't there...3 buttons are enough.

    Power button would be a nice touch. Speaking of that.... is there anyway to wake up the Vibrant other than pressing the power button on the right side of the device? My wife has a case on her Vibrant and it really takes a good bit of pressure to activate that button. Would be nice if there was an alternate way to wake the thing up.

    I use it every once in a while, maybe a few times a week when I need to Google something, but not enough to warrant it being there.

    It gets some use. As for the power, I think they should have tried to fit it on the top.

    I use it all of the time! Long press and then the mic pops up and I say "Map coffee" or whatever I want at the time wherever I am at and my google maps comes up loaded with options. I also use it for long press "Call mom" or whoever I want to call.

    Is there a hack to program this button to do other things?

    I have hit this DAMN button so many times while playing games. I wish there was a way to disable it where you push it and NOTHING happens! Im rooted, is there a way?

    I installed Vlingo which gives most(if not all I think) of the voice options that were updated for android 2.2. And its free. Its cool to say "Message Mom see you soon" Yes, thats a text to mom, I'm a good son :p

    my husband has a similar button on his cliq xt and uses it all the time, I was excited to see I got one now too!

    I am looking for a better way to wake up my phone too, i think I am going to download a lockscreen editor -widget locker and see if there is a setting to at least use the volume rocker ...
