    Care to share a link? Or is that not allowed?

    If you miss the dedicated camera button...you can use the keyboard "OK" button to take pictures.

    On both D1 and D2 you could hit Shift-Alt-Del at the same time to reboot the phone (like windows). The same keys don't seem to work on the D3. has anyone gotten it to work?

    Thank you! The only reason I miss the hardware button is for when you are taking pictures of yourself. The FFC isn't neccessarily the camera I want to use for that.

    The hardware button was handy when needed, but it was also a pain in the ass because it was hard to press it to get it to snap the photo or start the video.

    You can achieve the same by pressing the "home" button.

    If you are off the middle home screen, pressing home will take you there first so be aware that you may need to press Home twice to bring it up. Don't know if the quick slide up from the bottom works from any screen.

    yeah the slide up works from any screen, it seems a bit faster in its transition then pressing the home screen also. it could just be me though.

    Not sure if this is new or qualifies as a tip, but I'll give it a go:

    Pressing and holding the Volume Up button also turns on the screen if you don't like pressing the power button.

    *Edit/update* nevermind, it doesn't work all the time.

    I discovered this today myself. It's weird that it worked for awhile and then stopped working...and then started working again. I wonder what makes it work/not work. I like the feature (If it wasn't random).
