    Courtesy of Voodooochild and Greenmunky:

    To take a picture of your Samsung Fascinate screen without using another app:

    Press and hold the "back" soft key and press the "power" button it takes a snapshot of the screen and saves it in a gallery folder callled "ScreenCapture".

    I've tested this with EB01, don't know about stock or any other versions.

    I guess it's a feature of Froyo then.

    That is so totally awesome. Images are ten times better than trying to use my camera to archive my home pages.

    Thank you so much for this tip.

    Yep, I just verified it yet again.

    That is exactly how it works.

    At least on my Froyo version.
