    Okay, so since I updated my phone to Android version 4.0.3; I cannot screen capture.
    I've tried all the volume, home and lock button combinations and still nothing works.
    I use to be able to hold the home button down and the lock button without the task manager coming up but now everytime the damn thing always comes up.
    Its so frustrating because I used screen capture for important things so I could easily access them in my Gallery whenever needed
    Help me pleaaase :(

    NIGHTMARE EXPERIENCE!!! 05/20/2012 I've had the T-Mobile g2x for just over 13 months now (5/20/2012). My daughter had the same phone and warned me not to accept the upgrade as it would darken the camera pictures very much making the camera useless. This "upgrade" was in my face everytime i looked at my phone. After spending many hours on the phone (to no avail), trying to get the upgrade offer removed, I phoned customer care some 3 months later. The t-mobile tech assured me that the upgrade was fixed and talked me into accepting the upgrade just prior to April FOOLS Day! Sure enough the upgrade fouled up my camera and it is of little use now. After several more hours on the phone ...T-Mobile agreed to replace the phone with the galaxy model; but I had to wait until the middle of March 2012 (contract anniversary), in order to get the replacement for "nearly to nothing" with a $158.00 additional discount. T-mobile assured me he would post the discount and entire matter on my account so there would be no problem. Standing in front of the T-Mobile outlet mall and Just got off the phone with T-Mobile; .... They are not honoring the agreement! I understand T-Mobile no longer offers this phone...removed intirely from their stores with a life of roughly 15 Months.

    Screen Capture is Vol Down and Power Button, you have to hit them at the same time, and hold until it makes the shutter sound, tricky at first, I find a thumb on both buttons normally does the trick.

    I have no idea who you are, but I love you! I have tried and tried and tried to find something that works, but this is the ONLY thing that does. Thank you!

    Why they had to make this so complicated, I don't know, but at least it's finally working. Now if I could just figure out how to do it without the onscreen volume slider showing up in every screenshot. ;)

    I've upgaded my galaxy s2 recently to 4.0.4 and the screen capture here is done by pressing and holding HOME button and POWER button. Nothing to be done with volume buttons. Took me few mins too to figure it out..

    Hey all! I have been browsing these forums for a while now (as a guest) but I finally had to register to say THANK YOUT so much! I have a Galaxy S2 running ICS. It's a Canadian phone originally locked to Rogers, unlocked with a code and currently being used on Fido.

    This is the ONLY combo that has worked for me. What a pain in the @$$... better than nothing though.

    Thanks again,

    Yup, I concur for 4.04.
    At least on my phone, Power and home pressed at the same time seems to be the only method to get screen shots.
