Multitasking and multi-press shortcuts
Just read through this whole thread and my two most burning questions about this phone have not yet been addressed.
How exactly does multi-tasking work on the RAZR V9? Namely, how do you switch from one application to another? And is there a limit to how many things you can have running simultaneously?
And regarding multi-press shortcuts- On my old V551, I could assign an almost unlimited number of custom shortcuts for just about ANY function or menu on the phone. You simply highlighted the menu item you wanted to create a shortcut to, and then held down the menu key. At that point you could assign a numeric shortcut code from 1 to 49, and then access that new shortcut from ANYWHERE on the phone.
Eg; I had a shortcut for the web set to menu-4-1, and another shortcut set for my text messaging menu set to menu-2-1. WHILE browsing the web (no need to close the browser) I could simply hit menu-2-1, compose and/or read a text message, and then when I hit the end key it would automatically go back to where I was in the browser.
This is also very convenient for times when the soft-keys are not accessible (ie; when your already doing sometihng on the phnoe, but temporarily want to bring up the calculator or something without losing what your currently working on).
Seems to me like Motorola got rid of this functionality after the triplets series. WTF? :doh: What good is a 500MHz processor if I can't fully utilize it?!
MPT fans ... some good news!
