Default Buttons on top of the 8800 -- help.

Please Login to Remove!

I know my 8700g top right button used to put the phone in VIBRATE when you hold it down. Now on my 8800 (If I'm not mistaken this muted the phone when I first got it) but now it goes into "Standby mode"... what is standby mode and how does it differ from locking the keyboard? And what happen to the mute feature? The button depicts what looks like an image of a speaker with an X through it for mute/vibrate!

I don't recall my 8700 going into vibrate mode with a button on the top. On the 8800, the Mute key will mute the mic while on a call. When you're not on a call, you can depress it for a second or two to put it in standby mode. I use this all the time. This differs from the keyboard lock in that pressing any key will NOT do anything unless you first depress the mute key to take it out of standby mode. I don't use a holster and if you use the keyboard lock w/o standby, it is possible to make an emergency call by accident (believe me - I know).

Also, in standby mode your phone will continue to ring or vibrate if you receive a call. I think it also sends reminders for appointments and tasks but I don't recall off hand.
