    Did everyone know if you hold down the volume buttons it skips to the next track? Love finding little things like this. Sorry if I'm a noob and you all knew!

    Hey, I am a pretty heavy user and I did not know that. Thanks.
    Here is one for you: if you hold the Q down it goes to silent and if you do it again it goes to normal ring.

    The really cool thing is they will do that even when you press the end call button and minimize the player. Some of us have known this for a long time but take it for granted. There are also a gazillion other shortcuts.

    I am neither a newbie and I knew about the volume keys on the right. I was having issues trying to adjust the volume and having the song skip to the next? How do I adjust the settings where when I press the volume keys that it actually adjusts the volume?

    Press quick for volume up or down, press and hold for a second for next or previous song.

    Wow...That was embarrassing Thanks so much for the info. I kept messing up at the gym and couldn't figure out why sometimes the volume worked and at others i just had to keep skipping songs

    Also, "n" for next and "p" for previous work well as well.

    Question, is there a seperate dead button like on the bold 9700 so that I can use one for the camera and one for media?

    Welcome to crackberry.

    Here is my contribution to your thread
    With new Bold's 99xx hard to open battery cover, you can do a soft reboot instead of a hard reboot most of the time to fix minor issues.

    Press ALT+ right Shift(aA)+del to do a soft reboot
