    I have had the passport for a couple of months now and really enjoying it. My one nit is the center button sets off my music app and it is too easy to trip it. Sometimes it kicks off the Howard Stern show at the most inopportune times. I would love to disable or reassign this button. Any tips appreciated.

    thnx

    That is a PITA. I like to leave it open so it auto starts with my BT devices which leads me to another nit. I use neutron. If I do shut it down the BT kicks off the native music player that does not start where I left off on the show.

    Disabling the mute button didn't do it if that is what you meant.

    Closing the app appears to be the only solution for now but it works.

    I have had the same issue where the music app got accidentally activated by the mute centre button and started blaring music at work in the elevator. Sometimes I listen to music (ie. hip hop) with questionable lyrics and it would have been very embarrassing...even career limiting if such an offensive song went off in front of the wrong people.

    If this phone is meant for "business" and "security", well an idiotic function like this can certainly kill a business deal and reveal some embarassing details about someone (ie. Howard Stern radio show or offensive hip hop lyrics) to the wrong people.

    BB better rethink this one.

    Remap ability would be sweet as I have a working Google Now voice search and wouldn't mind replacing assistant with that.

    Otherwise, a sort of meeting mode that disables media functionality of the center button during preset times or disables when the phone is in silent/vibration would be cool.
