Default new way to turn off the handset - or bug? (very, VERY minor)

Please Login to Remove!

I know holding in the power button will turn off the device. However, pushing it VERY QUICKLY three times will initiate the same shutting down action. hehe.

Its simply amazing what you'll find when you're waiting on a girl to finish getting ready so you can go out to the club.

:D

*edit: 3 times or more (odd number of times) when the backlight is on; 2 times when its off (even number times).

A $64,000 question: after turning the power off with the Power button, is there any way to turn the 7100 ON without popping the battery?

<I know - but try and find it in the documentation>

Nowhere in the 7100t documentation does it mention how to power on the device

At least they fix the documentation to mention that the only way to reboot the device is to pop out the battery!

Rebooting is different from powering on. I always power on and off my device (when I actually do it) with the power button on the top.
