    Getting out my Sprint contract shortly in time for the Fathers Day Sale.
    I'm looking at the Mytouch 4G and have several questions.
    1) Does the screen need to be unlocked to take a picture or does holding the camera button unlock the phone and enter camera mode? I know that the HD7 has this feature.
    2) Can the hard buttons along the bottom be used to answer and end a call?
    3) Is there a message notification LED on the phone?
    I would prefer the Sensation but I'm assuming it won't be offered as part of the sale.​

    The camera button has no effect if the screen is dark or locked.
    The 4G hard buttons are Home, Menu, Back and Genius. There are no hard buttons for answering or ending calls.
    The only thing I have seen re notifications is the icons that show at the top.
    That said, I love my 4G.

    Tukatz answered the first two correctly, but the MT4G does have an LED notification light. I know on some Androids (like the G1) you can set what color you want the light to blink, but the MT4G only has the yellow light (and orange when charging).

    I think that's actually the light I'm referring to. It's blinking right now, and it's definitely green, not yellow. My bad. :p

    Except that the Sensation is another 1/2" longer and 3/10" wider. For my taste, that is just too big. The MyTouch 4G is only about 1/4" longer and wider than the 3G, and I can live with that. But then, opinions are like noses, everybody has one. ;)

    The local Costco near my place (LA) is offering the MyTouch 4G for free. Look around for deals,
