By the way, multi-tasking is something that I use every day. I will go to Facebook, tell it to update the status, then switch out to Vigo, have it update all my channels (a lot), then check my email. It truly does all that, easily. Unlike the iPhone.
i believe the holding down of the menu key is just for blackberry devices with OS 4.6 and higher. The original poster and others who still have OS 4.5 do not have that luxury.
