I can't find a way to turn off the music player other than turning the phone off and back on again.
I was wondering the same thing. Apparently that IS the off button. The only solution I have found is powering OFF the instinct and turning it back on. But its obviously a pain.
Right on I agree! Sometimes I pause it then back track a few button..ie 'pause' then, ' my music' then to 'main' clourse it's all a little mind game cuz if you go back to 'my music' you see the same song is on 'pause' I t just seems to make it less likely you will brush it an it will start playig again (like my nano i pod does if I don't lock it)
When you use it and get out of music player, eventually it will reset itself and then scan your card. Thats when it wont be on pause anymore, or just restart your phone! Hope this helps yall! DA-from ATX!
