    skyfire, it runs Hulu and that lets you access tons of free and legal tv shows and some decent full length movies. Nice app for the entertainment aspects. Also Starplyr, if you can get it to work is supposed to stream your Sirius and XM channels on your Fuze. TCPMP is a great free player for virtually all video formats. You get those three running on your Fuze and you have a lot of accessible free entertainment on a very capable work platform. Cuz

    Thanks for all the advice and help guys. I AM coming to terms with the Fuze after a slow start.

    My biggest gripe hasn't been with the OS at all...it's simply been a getting used to the touchscreen itself. After having used the capactive touchscreens on the Storm, G1 and iPhone I find this one to be really tricky. But I'm getting there.

    Now..big question.. How do I do screen captures?!?!

    I use SPB Imageer (which comes with a screen cap utility), but this free one should work:
    http://freewareppc.com/graphics/spbscreenshot.shtml

    Problem is, it's kind of a pain to map the hardware keys (by default the only "key" you can remap is the voice command "button"), so I usually just use the timer feature.

    I agree, a great, free, screen shot app. I use it.

    Can someone help with this issue?:

    I recently re-mapped the PTT button on my Fuze (using a link from a Wiki site), and for a while I was quite happy. (I re-mapped it to Messaging.) But now, at least once a day or so, the "setting" for the ptt button disappears, and I have to go back into my Settings and re-set it. (The push-and-hold PTT button always stays, just the PTT one doesn't?) ANy idea how to fix this??

    Thanks!
