Found this in a forum...might help...

Programmable Side Key

Set the key on the side of your phone to open the

feature you use most.

1. To set the programmable side key, touch >

Settings > Applications > Quick Launch.

2. Touch the item assigned to Side key (usually the

first item on the list), and then touch an application.


You can also use Quick Launch to set shortcuts for most

of the keyboard keys. To access these shortcuts, touch

and hold "search key" and press the key while holding "search key" .

Thanks Steven, I'd found that I could cause the side key to open the camera app, but couldn't use it to take the photo itself, I still needed to press the touchscreen button within the app.

Hi- Were you ever able to figure out how to assign a button to be the shutter button for the camera on the motorola xprt? I haven't been able to figure it out and the button on the screen is just not working well for me. Thanks! Erin
