    My camera button on the side of my droid used to bring up my camera mode when I would keep it pressed in for a few seconds, now it brings up some kind of search screen. How do I get this button to activate camera mode, like it did originally. I cannot find where to configure this button.

    Thanks

    Hmm, mine brings up email now. That is strange, has to be something in the default settings. I've done nothing to mine except rooted. Time to go digging.

    What apps do you have installed?

    I figured it out. Open Handsent, touch what ever that button between the "home" and "return" buttons is (sorry, having a senior moment), Settings, Send message settings, scroll all the way to the bottom to "Trigger camera button". I had to select this, back out, go back in and deselect it again for it to work.

    Yeah, I've learned to go into settings whenever I install a new app or update one I know wants a particular button.Usually though you get a tip off when you press the button and get asked which app you want but maybe the camera button works differently.

    I get as far as Settings, but I don't have Send Message Settings as an option! When I press the phone button while in camera mode it just beeps...won't take a pic.

    You can't scroll up in settings menu?

    You are using Handscent correct?
