    2 Things I'm Still Stumped On...

    1) How do you get the screen to light back up when it goes black while listening to voicemail? The side button completely ends the call and tapping the screen doesn't work either.

    2) I've seen the TV commercials where they say "the pen has a brain" but I can't tigure out how to do what the commercial shows. Sometimes I want to select phrases or do screen shots and cannot figure it out. The user guide is truly lacking.

    I can answer the first question. Go to settings, then 'accessibility' then 'call answering/ending.' The last option on the page is 'The power key ends calls.' Unclick that and you should be fine as far as turning the screen back on is concerned.

    To take a screenshot you just press and hold the pen button, then press the pen to the screen. Keep the pen pressed to the screen, with the pen button depressed, until the screen blinks ('shutter' effect) and the phone vibrates. This indicates that a screenshot has been taken. At that point you'll be presented with options to edit or save the screenshot.



    As far as highlighting with the pen is concerned, only certain apps are compatible with the pen for the time-being. Most likely they were using a pen-compatible program in the commercial to which you are referring.

    The other thing I learned today (from a post on another site) is that you can take screenshots, without the pen, using the edge of your hand. Use the edge of your hand/palm to sweep across the screen like you're trying to wipe something off the screen. If you move too fast then it won't work.
