    First of all, love this place! Been figuring out so many things:D
    Ok, the physical key that is the end/power button...a quick press shuts the screen off and it is seemingly off...is this standby then or does the phone have to standby itself?
    I ask because of this exceprt from the manual
    END/
    POWER
    To end a call, press to hang up.
    In standby mode, press to turn off the screen and lock the
    phone.
    In standby mode, press and hold to open the phone options
    menu that lets you turn on/off Mobile network connection, turn
    off the phone, or switch your phone to silent mode, vibration
    mode, or airplane mode.
    :):eek::thinking::(:)

    i think "standby mode" is just another way of saying when the phone is just doing nothing (NOT in a phone call).

    Yes, I guess I was rambling:>)
    Does it in fact put it in standby??

    Yes, press it once and the screen will shut off and go into standby.

    However, press and hold the button for a couple seconds and you get the list of options referenced in the manual.
    Quick press = standby.
    Press and hold = list of options.

    It used to be that I could push the button once and the screen would go blank, even if I had something open. When messing around I found an option for what that button does, and changed it so 1 press goes back to the home screen, then the 2nd press will turn off the screen.

    I want to change it back, but can't find it again. Does anyone know how to change it?
