Screen shot!

Don't know if this subject was touched on... But if you hold down the volume down key and the power button simultaneously it will capture a screen shot. Could be useful for some people...

I mentioned it in the first impressions thread and posted a ss... Someone said good find because the manual doesn't even touch on that... Who reads the manual?

Yep, already mentioned but nothing wrong with getting it out there.

I read this tip/trick somewhere and tried it on Samsung Galaxy S II but only lowered media volume and gave me options to power off/airplane mode/silent mode.

Hold down the home key, hit back key to reveal screen, push power to capture.

It doesn't work for me on the EVO LTE.  After a while, I get a message that the phone will power off (and the countdown starts).  I must be doing something wrong...  If it does work, I assume it gives you an option to save or send the print screen?!  I'm new to this (screen shot)...

Hold down the power button, then tap the Home button (bottom/center). Screen captured.

Have to press them almost the same time and hold. You should get a camera click sound if it worked. If instead your phone starts adjusting volume or asks to turn off, you didn't quite do them the same time.

power + home key works for me.  Maybe a hardware version difference for the different methods?  I have never gotten the power+vol down to work.
