TF3D Easter Eggs (Let's keep this one on topic)

I had no idea there were hidden commands in TF3D until lipidfats posted this:
http://forum.ppcgeeks.com/showpost.php?p=592470&postcount=5

I'm not sure if this was in the manual or not, but I figured I would start this thread as a place to post things that are relatively hidden in TF3D. Maybe it doesn't necessarily have to be "hidden," but just requires a less-than-intuitive command to access.


Yes, this has already been posted, but it was shut down as it strayed. I'd like to have at least one thread on this forum which progresses further than two pages.

Haha, that is awesome! Some more things like this would be sweet. (btw, I'd be happy to delete my post if you just want to keep this thread to 'easter eggs'.

Re: TF3D Easter Eggs (Let's keep this one on topic)

Well there are a few things I found in general that aren't in most reviews, but they don't all pertain to the TF3D.

For instance, in the camera application, if you take a photo in portrait mode, it will show up as a portrait in TF3D's picture tab. It knows how to differentiate between portrait and landscape for each photo. Also, the dpad allows quick access to zooming in and out, as well as the method (video, portrait, video share, ect.)

I know there's a few more "things a lot of people know about, but a lot of others don't" floating around in my head, but nothing else comes to mind at this moment.

Right, I think the accelerometer tells the camera which way the phone's oriented when the image is captured. I once caught it where the accelerometer didn't register the change in orientation and the image is now sideways.

As for the D-Pad, it took me a while to actually figure out not to run my finger along the ridge, but rather on the outside of it to get the best zooming results. I think that seems a little strange...

I don't know why it took me so long to figure this, and most people probably already know it, but you can flick side to side to flip to previous and next e-mail messages (instead of up and down like with text messages)

Like I said, I knew it wasn't discovering the atom, but since this is my first winmo, pocketpc phone, I thought other noobs might find it useful.
