    END Key Functionality

    Forgive me if I am stating the obvious here, but a while back, xv6600 users wanted to be able to switch the phone on and off via the red "end" button. There was a registry hack here:

    Easy toggle for Phone Flight Mode (to turn phone on and off)

    Apparently, this works in reverse for the Sprint model. The registry key referenced in the above link is a general key for this model of phone that selects the function of holding the "end" button - either turn off the phone (default setting on Sprint) or disconnect the data session (the Verizon default).

    Reg Key: flightmodeswitchbypnhendkey

    0 = disconnect data session (Verizon default)
    1 = turn off phone (Sprint default)

    I mention this because a few people, including myself, wanted to know how to disconnect the data session on the Sprint PPC-6601 without turning off the phone or some other weird trick and the obviousness of reversing the xv6600 hack eluded me

    That's good to know. Thanks for the thread link.

    I'm still an infant in the PPC OS world. So, I'll wait before I attempt any registry hacks, or any hacks for that matter. First I gotta learn how to pull my POP email in Pocket Oulook instead of having it pushed to me. LOL
