    Hi there,

    This is my first post here and I just got a nexus one a couple days ago. Totally in love with the device and it's probably the best phone I have owned!

    I did encounter a small gripe while listening to music on it today though. Can you change the songs with the physical volume keys when the phone is locked? I know on my Bold you hold the volume keys and it changes songs.

    Just wondering if there is a solution to this or maybe an app to download.

    Thanks guys. Look forward to spending more time here!

    If you are not afraid to root, the latest Cyanogen ROM allows you to change tracks by using a long press of the volume keys, even while the phone is locked. I am not aware of any method without rooting to allow for this currently.

    I am currently using "3" but I have tried it with the stock music player as well.
