Ok so I love this phone! Previous owner of a samsung moment so the transform is glorious. Anyway I noticed I can take screen shots somehow but I can't do it on purpose. The other day I was sliding my phone down and it said screen capture taken. Saving image to file or something like that but when I google how to do it all the sites say I have t download 2 softwares, but my phone can already do it? Any suggestion on how to do this?

yea I just encountered this today. no idea how to replicate it

EDIT: OMG I FIGURED IT OUT ! !

on the galaxy s, simply press the home and back key simultaneously. I find it easier to do if I lightly touch both buttons first before clicking the home key. who says you need an app for that? enjoy! :)

let us know if it works on the transform or any other android phones
