    I got the Nexus via the best buy deal on monday at noon and realized at 3pm I had been playing with it non stop. I love new tech, especially incredible tech such as this. The one flaw with the phone?

    the volume - fixed it with the volume+ free app

    an annoyance? THE RINGTONES! ALL TURRIBLE!

    Now.... this is a mind numbing hair tearing annoyance.. please help.

    Now, it's not an issue with the phone. It's an issue with me unknowing how to access it.. and I've literally been pressing, tapping, clicking, and holding for the last 20 minutes.

    My last phone was the HTC Droid Incredible (HDI). At the bottom of the phone it has four buttons.

    Home | Menu | <- | Search (boy is the search key worthless... probably pressed it a total of thrice!)

    Now, on the HDI, when you were in any app, to bring up the settings yo simply pressed the Menu key... for example.

    In the messaging screen, you pressed the menu and it brought up a drop down menu from the bottom where you could delete texts, bring up a new text, undelivered, drafts, push messages, and it's settings..

    another example. In the call menu, when you pressed the menu button , it would bring up the people, call history, speed dial, phone settings, and tips!

    in a third party example (and this app is crucial to the pleasure I get from using a phone) is TinyShark, a groove shark third party unofficial app... which is incredible (it's an app of this website Grooveshark - Free Music Streaming, Online Music which is the original spotify)

    when you hit the menu key for this app, It allows you to reconnect (to the grooveshark servers), settings, and EXIT!

    now, on the galaxy nexus, there are three keys, BACK | HOME | ... ALT TAB?

    (out of frustration.. here are caps locks! sorry!)

    HOW DO I BRING UP THE DROP DOWN MENU FOR INDIVIDUAL APPS?!? I'm friggen losing my mind triyng to figure out

    please androidforumians

    plz help :(

    If it's available, you should see an icon that looks like 3 vertical dots. In Gmail for example, it's the right-most icon on the bottom.

    This is from the stock browser:

    Best ring tones and notification tones can be found by downloading Zedge from the market.

    You can also find some beautiful ringtones within the US MIUI rom (just open the rom file with winrar and snag em outta there).

    The three dots are in the bottom right hand corner of that picture you posted. They are most often in that position in apps, too.

    holy shit! I never noticed it on the phone itself, but on the massive picture I see the dots on the bottom toolbar at the far right! :) awesome! I'm going through apps and seeing the dots erraywhere now! fantastic :)

    thanks again, android forums.. going to continue to cherish this phone aqs it is absolutely freakin awesome! seriously, I'm in love with this phone. I can't take my hands off of it!

    I have to be extra careful with it as I didn't get the insurance with it but the woman at best buy said I could return in two weeks when I get my check and get the insurance!!

    The woman just said that I have to return the phone in the condition I rebought the phone in

    so.. I have to keep it extra safe!
