Anyone know a way around this?
    You can use YAHM (Yet Another Hack Manager) and the hack, "KeyClickHack" to do this. Both are available free from:

    You can also use "TreoKeyHack" (along with YAHM), to silence the clicks, as well as add some other options, like select/highlighting, etc.

    I went from a Kyocera 7135 to the Treo 650, and also miss some of the built-in features (like highlight a phone number, press the phone button, and it dials; or, my favorite: when listening to music and a call came in, it would say, "Incoming Call -- Answer?" and if I said, "No," it put the person through to voicemail and I could keep listening).

    ooh... nevermind... That Profile app actually separates the "System" sounds from the "Alert" sounds, so I set system to Off and Alert to Low and then my app started working again. This profile thing rocks.

    Did hitting the menu button a second time fix your backing out of menus issue?

    Well, it's not just a "menu" thing. I didn't explain it too well. It's more of a "go back from anywhere" thing. Yeah, hitting the menu button again closes the menu, but that's only one aspect of it. Like I mentioned, many games won't let me exit because there's no "go back" button... same with other areas where you open a dialog and have to do something in order to get out of it. Some dialogs offer a "Cancel", but some don't... it's just nice to have one button you can hit for every time you want to "leave" wherever you are.

    Thanks for the post and everyone for the answers. I'm coming from i500 too.

    McPhling looks like it will work as a "go back" for me. Like Switchhack used to. I assigned it to the side button. For those wondering what it does, it works like the button on a TV remote that switches between the last two channels. This will be real handy if it still works wile on the phone to go back and forth between the phone and calendar or notes or contacts.

    Not every phone has always done that. Some of those features don't exist on some of my Nokias. As far as vibrate to sound, you do realize you have the switch at the top right? And you can use Profiles to do a silent fairly quickly when needed.

    Do you know that holding down the HOME button for about a second gives you a list of the last half dozen applications and you can jump directly to any of them. Much more flexible than a simple back button.

    This has been covered. Profiles did the trick for this problem, though. Very handy app.

    Yeah... I noticed that the other day. It's handy, but still not what I'm talking about. I guess you'd have to be used to having this feature to miss it. It really is handy.

    Installing a launcher program (i use zlauncher) will make the home button always work, in all the games ive tried, exit worked every time just by pushing the home button.. but this was only AFTER i installed zlauncher.

    WATFY, when you used profiles to separate system sounds from alerts, did you still get alarms for Diddlebug? I noticed that Diddlebug seems to use the volume setting from the system sounds.

    As far as the switchover, I just came from the i500 a couple months ago. I believe that most of the integration you like was not native Palm OS and was custom programming from Samsung. Some of that custom programming was good (as you mentioned) some bad (like the way they hacked up the native datebook so you couldn't use any of the custom midi alarm files you see posted all over the place). I agree that it was a much better phone (excluding the lack of bluetooth). However, I have found the 5 way navigator to be excellent replacement for some of the button issues and I don't miss graffiti at all. I can't remember the last time I had to take out my stylus for the Centro LOL.

    Yes. In the "General" section of the profile, I set System Sound to "Off" and "Alarm Sound" to Low. Then Diddlebug started working again.

    Oh yeah... I hated Graffiti, but never found myself needing to use it, fortunately.

    I, too, came from an i500 and really miss the page up and page down volume button feature as well! I just put in a feature request to Butler to add this functionality, I recommend everyone who wants that back to send an email to their support to request the feature. I received a very friendly response saying that it would be added to the request list.

    There are many things I miss about the i500 but the Centro is a very worthy replacement. Missing the flip has been mostly overcome with the extremely intuitive Treo key guard functionality (as it always locks itself and the quick unlock, no comparison to the Q and Blackjack).

    I would also like to see a simple back button. Sometimes you get into a program and realize you need to return to the previous screen. Unfortunately, you have to start over.

    Maybe we should request that this be included in Butler. If they add the page up/down support to the side buttons, and add the ability to assign a "Back/Cancel" feature to any button, It'd be worth the money for me.

    As a current Butler user, I concur.

    Butler and mcphling already have this feature. I don't know what I would do without it. I use the side up and down buttons as the last app and the next app (back and forth) mapped with butler. I also did a custom mapping using mcphling and I mapped the backspace button on the keyboard to the back button. Now when I hold the backspace button I go to the last app.
