    Is there a way to take a screen capture with a none rooted RAZR?

    I was able to do it on my Galaxy S, by holding the back button for a few seconds, then pressing the power button.

    Once you get Ice Cream Sandwich you can screen shot with volumer rockers and power button. If not ICS you can take snap shots of web pages if you are using Dolphin Broowser, there is an add on called screen cut.

    Sorry for being a newbie, but still not sure how to do this. I tried to hold down the power button, then press the volume button. Also tried the opposite. Also tried pressing both at the same time. Didn't look like anything happened. How do I do this.

    Long as have ICS you can press and hold (at the same time) the power and volume down key for about 2-3 seconds and a screen shot will be taken. If you press the power button too soon before the volume down it should do the simulated battery pull.

    Push the down volume button and the power button at the same time. Books it for a second and you should hear the shutter. Takes a little practice.

    Volume down unless your RAZR is different. ;-)

    That is so cool. Pwr plus vol down did it (Pwr plus vol up did not work on my phone). I'm so thrilled. Thanks for the info. It stored it into internal memory. Any way to have it stored on the SD card? I have it set up so my camera stores pics to the SD card.

    I know I can move it later to the SD card, but it would be nice to have it stored there in the first place.

    Here are my instructions to myself:

    to take screen shot
    hold down power & volume down buttons at same time for a few seconds
    will hear shutter


    go to status bar to see picture
    or later, see with
    My Gallery; My library
    OR
    My Files; Pictures; Screenshots
    or when connected to computer, look under:
    MOT/Pictures/Screenshots

    I have not found a way to have the screen shits automatically goto a folder on SD card yet. Hopefully if there is a way someone will chime in as I'd like to set that up also.

    LMAO!!!!! Now that is funny. Yes, screen shot is what I meant. Darn I and O being too close together when typing fast.
