    I have a HTC vivid and kept accidentally doing this. Tried to google many times and couldn’t figure it out. So I stopped being phone specific and found this site. Thanks a bunch, and any other Vivid users out there, try it out, no need for an app!

    Wow…that was it. I was wondering how the hell those screenshots kept turning up in my gallery. I knew I took them by mistake and tried so many ways to figure out how. Thanks for the post.

    Just like the iPhone. Cool! I just switched to an HTC Vivid after being an iPhone user for 5 years. I was reading about rooting and apps in pidgin English and I was about to be disappointed in my phone for the first time in a month.

    @Gary, I had to be phone specific to find it. I’m glad we all did.

    PS: The iPhone isn’t any more user friendly, I found it by accident about a year in.

    So what does it mean when all of the steps you mentioned worked, but the screenshot doesn’t actually save anywhere on the device? The screenshot looks like it is saving, I get the message saying it was saved to Camera Shots but when I go there… nothing.

    You seriously rock… Like everyone else, I’ve been doing this by accident and have downloaded 3 different apps to do it on purpose and they all sucked!

    Thanks so much 🙂

    Okay so I kept trying this, even making sure I’m holding down the home button. All that’s happening is the screen is locking again. What am I doing wrong?
